Collision Repair & Refinish Equipment

New Products Showcase Entries for Returning Vehicles to Like-New Condition

The SEMA Show’s North Hall is home to the Collision Repair & Refinish section, where exhibitors feature tools and equipment for bodywork, painting and outfitting a shop. While collision-avoidance systems and other new technologies are transforming the way vehicles operate, the way repairs are diagnosed and performed is also beginning to shift. Business remains strong for shops around the country, and staying on the cutting edge is paramount. Resources such as the SEMA Show education sessions can help. Both the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR) and the Society of Collision Repair Specialists offer training throughout the week. Visit www.SEMAShow.com/education for more information.

The collision-repair tools and equipment featured on the following pages were entries in the 2017 SEMA Show New Products Showcase and can help repair facilities remain at the forefront of the industry.
