Chief to Provide Training on Design-Based Repair, Blueprinting and Repairing New Metals at NACE

Chief Automotive Technologies will offer training on important collision repair industry topics including design-based repair, blueprinting and repairing advanced materials during NACE at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Oct. 5-8.

Richard Perry, Chief global repair product manager, will teach estimators and collision repair technicians how to identify and repair advanced metals in a seminar that will be offered twice as part of the NACE educational conference. The “Design-Based Repair” session will be presented on Wednesday, Oct. 5, from 10:30 a.m. to noon and again on Friday, Oct. 7, from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Vehicle manufacturers are using a wide range of advanced materials in new vehicle designs. It’s imperative, Chief says, that estimators and technicians know what these materials are and how they impact the collision repair process. In his session, Perry will cover techniques for material identification and proper repair methods and will discuss the reasons for the move toward advanced steels in vehicle design. Registration through NACE is required to attend the “Design-Based Repair” class.
 
Chief says it will also provide extensive free training at the show.

On Thursday, Oct. 6, at 3 p.m., Perry will join Ken Boylan, Chief training and specifications manager, and Timothy Morgan, managing director, Elektron Inc., on the Collision Hub Stage to present a free Repair University course, “Structural Repair Blueprinting: Your Key to the Express Lane.” The trio will take a look at how structural repair blueprinting can help facilities streamline their collision repair processes to improve cycle times and customer satisfaction. They’ll cover the roles that collision theory, structural measuring and damage analysis play in structural repair planning. In addition to being live onstage on the NACE show floor, this Repair University session will also be broadcast live on Collision Hub TV.

Morgan will be back on the Collision Hub stage on Friday, Oct. 7, at 12:30 p.m., with “Repairing the New Metals.” As OEMs continue to incorporate high-strength steel and new metals in their vehicle designs to meet crash standards, the processes and technology used to repair those vehicles must change as well. In this live session, Morgan will discuss how facilities can prepare and equip themselves to handle the new metals. This session will also be broadcast live on Collision Hub TV, which is sponsored by Chief.

While at NACE, visitors to Chief Booth N803 can view live demonstrations of Chief’s computerized measuring systems and learn more about Chief University and the new in-shop I-CAR Gold training class.

Elektron will also perform live resistance welding demonstrations during show hours in Booth N403.
