On Thursday, July 23rd, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) held an open board meeting in Detroit, Mich., featuring a technical presentation by SCRS Education Committee member Toby Chess focused on pulsed synergic MIG welding for aluminum. In addition to a detailed look at the science behind the unique welding process and why more auto manufacturers are relying on it, Chess reported on a comparison of current welders available to the market and how they performed in a 1mm butt weld with backer field test that was conducted in June 2015.

On Wednesday, November 4th, during the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Chess will be leading a Repairer Driven Education (RDE) session entitled, “Welding Technologies – A Comprehensive Tutorial on Modern Equipment.” One of the most frequent questions posed by collision repair businesses looking to adapt to the changing landscape of automotive repairs is, “What do I need, and where do I start?” The equipment necessary to repair the modern fleet continues to evolve as quickly as the vehicle architecture does, and understanding tool and equipment options that provide the most capability can save repair businesses from unnecessary investments in wrong or outdated repair technology.
