Tech-Cor's auto damageability research focuses on developing safe and cost-effective repair procedures for common collision-related damage. Crash tests serve as a baseline to determine how vehicles respond in a typical collision, and as a test validation for the effectiveness of various repair methodologies. Tech-Cor shares its research findings with manufacturers and various industry associations through a variety of publications and online resources. Tech-Cor also operates a public technical inquiry hotline, where its collision repair experts address a wide variety of real-world repair concerns.
In addition to conducting its own independent research, Tech-Cor maintains strategic alliances with domestic, Asian and European original equipment manufacturers and various industry organizations including RCAR and SAE regarding damageability and reparability issues. These alliances give Tech-Cor valuable insight into the latest technical developments and repair methodologies. Tech-Cor also maintains ongoing training partnerships with leading industry manufacturers, including Akzo Nobel, Chief Automotive Technologies, Car-O-Liner and 3M. Together, Tech-Cor and its partners help bring continuing education and training to technicians and others in the collision repair industry.
