Chief adds new free training resources to website

Chiefautomotive.com features free repair guides, how-to videos and more to help collision repair professionals keep up with the latest industry advancements.

Madison, Indiana — July 28, 2015 — Chief Automotive Technologies has added best practices guides, how-to videos and other educational materials to its website, chiefautomotive.com, to help collision repair professionals keep up with the evolving industry.

“In the rapidly changing collision repair field, you have to continually educate yourself to stay ahead of the curve,” says Bob Holland, Director of Collision Sales in North and South America for Chief parent company Vehicle Service Group (VSG). “Discovering new techniques or learning how to get the most out of your equipment can help make your shop more efficient. The educational materials we’ve added to chiefautomotive.com are available at any time for free, making it easier than ever to stay on top of the latest industry advancements.”

Much of the new educational content at chiefautomotive.com focuses on the hot topic of aluminum repair. Chief’s aluminum repair equipment page includes information about aluminum-compatible holding, pulling and welding tools, plus the Aluminum Industry Terms Guide, a primer on aluminum terminology like “GMA,” “PNGV” and “heat shrinking.”

Other educational material on the Chief site was created to provide customers with a broader understanding of current vehicle design and the tools and techniques needed to repair modern vehicles. The Collision Dynamics Guide shows how the forces involved in a collision travel beyond the point of impact, and how the whole vehicle structure can be compromised by a collision. 

While the evolution of vehicle design has led to an increase in sectioning and parts replacement, the traditional frame rack remains an integral part of the repair process. Chiefautomotive.com visitors can learn about securely holding a vehicle with a frame rack by downloading the Anchoring Concepts guide. They can also view a series of videos on Chief’s structural holding page to see how Structural Holding Package components can be used to create a wide variety of holding points.
