During the open and interactive session, panelists explore how modern vehicle architecture and design specifically influence repair facility processes. From research of advanced substrates and mixed-material designs to joining processes and equipment necessities, the program will fully explore the range of considerations necessary to perform structural collision repair.
With automakers intentionally designing flows of energy through structural components and away from occupants, understanding how to anticipate and identify signs of energy travel through the vehicle and the possible impact upon the repair process is also critical for technicians and owners alike.

In this open and interactive session, panelists will explore how modern vehicle architecture and design specifically influence repair facility consideration. From research and integration of advanced substrates, similar and mixed material designs, to joining processes and facility and equipment necessities; the program is going to fully explore the range of factors that need to be considered to perform structural repair. With an ever-increasing focus on vehicle design with intentional flow of energy through structural components, and away from occupants, understanding how to anticipate and identify signs energy travel through the vehicle, and impacts that it may have in the repair process are critical for technicians and owners alike.
This session is an opportunity to learn directly from Audi of America, the Auto/Steel Partnership, FCA and Porsche Cars North America about vehicle structure design and how these companies support and encourages proper structural repair.
