Great Designs in Steel 2017 Presentations: The Continuing Need for Collision Repair Information Improvement and Standardization

In case you missed it, Jason Bartanen from I-CAR presented: "The Continuing Need for Collision Repair Information Improvement and Standardization."

A call went out to the engineer’s present, and will more than likely continue to go out, for the need to improve and standardize the type of collision repair information available. Currently, no two OEMs are in sync with material identification and repair information layout.

It has become crucial with the ever-increasing use of high-strength steels that technicians, adjusters, estimators, know what the MPa of the parts is for the vehicle repairs. Though some OEMs do specify many types of materials, providing the MPa would be a benefit, especially when it comes to heating and straightening restrictions, along with replacement options.
