Hunter has announced its participation in the SCRS Repairer Driven Education—OEM Session II: The Impact of Advanced Vehicle Systems on Routine Repair Process and Procedure (OEM2) on Thursday November 2, 2017 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM at SEMA 2017.
Registration is available onsite outside the education rooms located in the upper level of the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The SCRS Repairer Driven Education (RDE) series will feature seminar offerings that have been individually selected or crafted by SCRS because the content specifically focuses on issues and information that are relevant to collision repair professionals operating in today’s marketplace, and appeals to the diverse array of marketplace perspectives that exist within the collision repair industry.
During OEM Session II, Kaleb Silver, Senior Product Manager for Hunter Engineering will present on challenges facing the industry, and the impact of advanced systems on routine services such as wheel alignments. After the presentation he will welcome a distinguished panel featuring representatives of OEM, Association and Tier I suppliers to discuss the growing complexities facing the repair marketplaces.
An increasing number of vehicles include advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). In order to meet OEM specifications for alignment service, a Safety System Alignment must be performed on many vehicles equipped with ADAS Systems, in addition to a mechanical wheel alignment. This new technology can have significant effect on how you perform previously routine services in your collision repair facility. While those on the road benefit from ADAS, the repair industry must change how they approach traditional services as many OEMs require additional procedures, calibrations and tools to ensure restoration of vehicle functionality.
Hunter Engineering’s WinAlign 15 is designed to make it easy to align a vehicle’s computer control systems such as adaptive cruise control (ACC) and lane departure warning systems (LDW). Hunter’s new Safety System Alignment is the only integrated mechanical and Safety System Alignment procedure.
