The OEM Collision Repair Technology Summit will focus on emerging trends in vehicle construction and technology and how both of those aspects influence vehicle repairability and collision industry preparation.
The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) added schedule topic details to the website landing pages for the upcoming OEM Collision Repair Technology Summit, which will be held Thursday, November 5, during the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The summit will focus on emerging trends in vehicle construction and technology and how both of those aspects influence vehicle repairability and collision industry preparation. The program is designed to put SEMA Show attendees in a room with innovators in automotive structural design and technology, providing one of the most unique networking and learning opportunities available to the collision-repair industry.
This year, the program will provide three different segments, which can be selected individually or collectively as part of the Repairer Driven Education (RDE) Full Series Pass.
The sessions will feature companies and individuals with rich histories of producing sophisticated advancements in the automotive and collision-repair fields, and will highlight architectural and technological developments in modern vehicles, and how those advancements intersect with the repair process. Sessions will include:
OEM1 | Advanced Automotive Technology
9:30 a.m.–11:30 a.m.
This will include panel discussions on both Structural Connectivity – Understanding the Future of Automaker Joining Techniques, and Tech Crunch – The Role of Programming and Diagnostics in Post-Repair Road Worthiness.
OEM2 | The Future of Aluminum in the Automotive Industry
12:30 p.m.–2:30 p.m.
OEM3 | The Continuing Evolution of Advanced Steels in Automotive Bodies
3:00 p.m.–5:00 p.m.
Both afternoon sessions will include detailed presentations on technological developments in each of the featured substrate markets, and then transition to panels of automakers known for their use of the featured materials to discuss real-world applications in vehicular structural design, safety and repairability.
More details on each segment are available by following the individual links.
Attendees are encouraged to register early, as space will be limited for each of these sessions.
