3M Introduces Free Collision Repair App


Recommended Posts

3M Collision Repair AppThe 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division is introducing a new tool designed to enable autobody technicians and distributor sales staff to get answers to their collision repair questions on their mobile devices. Available on the Apple App Store, the free app provides quick access to 3M collision repair product information, process guides, application videos and standard operating procedures. 

In addition to product-ordering information, users can find technical data sheets, safety data sheets, new product announcements, special offers and promotions and news and events. The mobile app also lets users bookmark their favorite content and email content to others.

“We designed this app to be a clean and user-friendly platform where our user customers and the sales people who call on them can quickly find the product information, technical advice and news they need, on the device they have with them everywhere – their smartphone,” said Dale Ross, U.S. marketing operations manager for 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division. “Initially, this is available for Apple phones but will soon be available for Android phones as well.”

The 3M Collision Repair App runs on iOS 9.0 or later and is fully compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

      The CAR Coalition has reported that Massachusetts Attorney General Andrea Joy Campbell is prepared to move forward with the Massachusetts Right to Repair law.
      Ballot Question 1, which updated the state’s landmark 2013 Right to Repair law, passed with 75% of the vote in November 2020. Since then, automakers have kept the law tied in up federal court in an effort to block its implementation.
      While a federal judge has delayed ruling on the automakers’ lawsuit on six occasions, the attorney general recently issued notice that she intends to enforce the law effective June 1:
      “The people of Massachusetts deserve the benefit of the law they approved more than two years ago. Consumers and independent repair shops deserve to know whether they will receive access to vehicle repair data in the manner provided by the law. Auto manufacturers (“OEMs”) and dealers need to understand their obligations under the law and take action to achieve compliance.”
      – Massachusetts Attorney General Andrea Joy Campbell
      On the national stage, U.S. Rep. Neal Dunn recently re-introduced

HR 906, as introduced in Congress, aims to “ensure consumers have access to data relating to their motor vehicles, critical repair information and tools, and to provide them choices for the maintenance, service and repair of their motor vehicles, and for other purposes.”
      “When it comes to repairing their automobiles, consumers deserve options,” said Dunn, a Florida Republican. “The REPAIR Act would give owners, including the rural communities in my district, secure access to critical data so their chosen service center can replace parts and repair their vehicles. I am proud to support competition in the vehicle repair industry.”
      Dunn is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which has responsibility for consumer protection, among several other topics. The bill was referred to the committee on Feb. 9.

      On Feb. 9, U.S. Rep. Neal Dunn re-introduced federal Right to Repair legislation.
      HR 906, as introduced in Congress, aims to “ensure consumers have access to data relating to their motor vehicles, critical repair information and tools, and to provide them choices for the maintenance, service and repair of their motor vehicles, and for other purposes.”
      “When it comes to repairing their automobiles, consumers deserve options,” said Dunn, a Florida Republican. “The REPAIR Act would give owners, including the rural communities in my district, secure access to critical data so their chosen service center can replace parts and repair their vehicles. I am proud to support competition in the vehicle repair industry.”
      Dunn is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which has responsibility for consumer protection, among several other topics. The bill was referred to the committee on Feb. 9.
      The bipartisan bill has three co-sponsors: Reps. Brendan Boyle (Pennsylvania) and Marie Gluesenkamp Perez (Washington), both Democrats, and Rep. Warren Davidson, a Republican (Ohio).
      “There are hundreds of neighborhood mechanics in Philadelphia,” Boyle said in a news release. “The last thing those small business owners need is to be boxed out of making a living. This legislation would not only protect the business relationships between automobile owners and their mechanics, but it also ensures consumers continue to have more options on where to go for repairs.”
      Aftermarket trade groups applauded the legislation. In a news release on behalf of MEMA Aftermarket, the CAR (Consumer Access to Repair) Coalition and SEMA, the Auto Care Association said:
      “The legislation will ensure the preservation of consumer choice, a fair marketplace and the continued safe operation of the nation’s 292 million registered passenger and commercial motor vehicles, 70% of which are maintained by independent repair facilities.”
      According to the Auto Care Association, the Right to Equitable and Professional Auto Industry Repair (REPAIR) Act will accomplish this by:
      Preserving consumer access to high-quality and affordable vehicle repair by ensuring that vehicle owners and their repairers of choice have access to necessary repair and maintenance tools and data as vehicles continue to become more advanced. Ensuring access to critical repair tools and information. All tools and equipment; wireless transmission of repair and diagnostic data; and access to onboard diagnostic and telematic systems needed to repair a vehicle must be made available to the independent repair industry. Ensuring cybersecurity by allowing vehicle manufacturers to secure vehicle-generated data and requiring NHTSA to develop standards for how vehicle generated data necessary for repair can be accessed securely. Providing transparency for consumers by requiring vehicle owners be informed that they can choose where and how to get their vehicle repaired. Creating a stakeholder advisory committee and providing them with the statutory authority to provide recommendations to the FTC on how to address emerging barriers to vehicle repair and maintenance. Providing ongoing enforcement by establishing a process for consumers and independent repair facilities to file complaints with the FTC regarding alleged violations of the requirements in the bill and a requirement that the FTC act within five months of a claim. “As vehicle technology continues to advance, new barriers to a competitive auto repair market are emerging,” Auto Care said. “These barriers limit consumer choice in where to repair their motor vehicles and increase the cost to repair and maintain vehicles. The REPAIR Act will reduce these barriers, putting consumers’ interests first.”
      Momentum for Right to Repair
      Momentum has been building for Right to Repair in recent years.
      In November 2020, Massachusetts voters overwhelmingly voiced their support for Ballot Question 1 (also known as Right to Repair) with 75% of the vote, which preserves their right as vehicle owners to have access to and control of their vehicle’s mechanical data necessary for service and repair at the shops of their choice.
      In May 2021, the Federal Trade Commission released its
      link hidden, please login to view, which highlighted barriers that vehicle manufacturers have instituted to squash a consumer’s right to repair. The FTC has said it strongly supports expanding consumer repair options and found “scant evidence” for repair restrictions imposed by OEMs. In July 2021, President Biden issued the “
      link hidden, please login to view” executive order, which encouraged the FTC to address anti-competitive repair restrictions. In December 2022, the Digital Fair Repair Act was signed into law by New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, and in January 2023, John Deere signed an MOU with the American Farm Bureau Federation. The REPAIR Act is the only bill that addresses vehicle maintenance and repair restrictions, including heavy-duty vehicles the U.S. economy depends on for freight transport.

      MAHLE Motorsport announced four new performance cast PowerPak piston sets for the 6-liter and 6.4-liter Ford Powerstroke.
      Developed in direct response to consumer demand for diesel motorsports competition, the new 6-liter pistons are based on the 2004+ design, and the 6.4-liter pistons are based on the MaxxForce design that provides maximum strength and superior durability, according to the company.
      “All four sets offer incredible versatility, allowing a daily driver to become a weekend warrior for drag, dyno or pulling competitions,” the company added. 
      The castings retain the OEM steel top ring insert for the longevity of the top ring groove and are engineered with fully radiused valve pockets to reduce stress and fatigue cracking. Also, a lower compression ratio (.5 to 1.5 points) allows more flexibility for high-output tuning.
      They’re designed with performance bowls that reduce erosion issues caused by high pressure, long duration and advanced injection timing, and available with 0.100-inch-deep intake and exhaust valve pockets that work with many performance aftermarket camshafts.
      The 6-liter PowerPak set is cast from MAHLE’s proprietary M124 alloy and the 6.4-liter Powerstroke set is cast from M142 alloy. Both are designed for a 4.134 stroke and 6.929 rod. The CR is calculated with 0.0008-inch piston protrusion above deck and 0.059-inch head-gasket thickness.
      As with all PowerPak piston sets, the pistons are treated with MAHLE’s proprietary GRAFAL skirt coating for reduced drag and increased scuff resistance. Heavy-duty DLC-coated tool steel wrist pins, clips and a high-performance ring set rounds out the PowerPak. 
      “Diesel motorsports is all the rage from NHRDA, ODSS to Ultimate Callout Challenge,” MAHLE Motorsport Program Manager, Joe Maylish said. “We’re excited to announce that MAHLE Motorsport is coming in strong for 2023 with new diesel piston sets in time for this year’s race season. So, if you are a seasoned competitor needing an edge or just thinking about competing this year, our new Powerstroke kits are designed to give you the edge on the weekends and improve performance throughout the week.”
