SUN, a Snap-on brand, recently introduced its new repair information resource for collision repair facilities that often have to perform mechanical repairs as well.
Officially launched at the 2019 SEMA Show, SUN Collision Repair Information contains comprehensive, accurate data to equip shops with the ability to repair almost all vehicles efficiently.
“We are thrilled to offer collision repair facilities a new comprehensive source of repair information that covers all types of repairs, both collision and mechanical,” said Nicholas Blais, Product Manager for SUN Collision Repair Information. “SUN Collision builds on the long and respected heritage of the SUN Brand, giving technicians an invaluable tool to help them maximize efficiency in the shop.”
The company explains in a release that technological advancements in vehicles have led to the blurring of the line between collision and mechanical repairs. Sensors, cameras and other mechanical components often get damaged when a vehicle’s body and frame get impacted in a collision. To take the vehicle back to its safe operating condition, it is necessary to repair and/or recalibrate these components in such cases.
Information to perform collision and mechanical repairs on all types of light duty vehicles is being offered on SUN Collision. When working on vehicles equipped with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) features, technicians can access the ADAS-Driver Assist quick reference feature for consolidated repair and recalibration information.
“With SUN Collision, auto body shops can take advantage of complete repair information available in a single resource to help them be prepared to perform mechanical work in-house rather than outsourcing those repairs,” explained Blais.
SUN Collision Repair Information contains the following features:
- Materials, body and frame, paint and finish
- OEM collision repair information for all makes
- Repair information that can be searched by part number
- Real-world insights for mechanical repairs
- User-friendly graphical layout
- Mobile friendly
