Emerging Technologies Presentations


2021-7-EmergingTechGreatDesigns Great Designs In Steel – Collision Repair Considerations: Each year, automotive steel engineers share some of their research and development at the Great Designs In Steel (GDIS) event. The work they share directly impacts the collision repair industry, especially the new models the cover during the event. This presentation provide you with an update on the steels and vehicles covered
and how these new technologies impact you and the collision repair process.
