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.

      Hey, everyone, I will explain some advantages of PDR over traditional dent repair. I think it will be helpful for you. 
      PDR is the process of restoring the dented or damaged panels of your vehicle’s body back to the factory finish. This is done by reshaping the sheet metal back to its factory-designed shape without causing any damage to the original paint.
      PDR tools/dent tools such as Led reflection light are used to help the technician see even the finest details of damage that has occurred to the body; along with any imperfections on the painted surface and the Orange Peel – texture on the painted surface of a vehicle.
      For technicians performing PDR, being able to identify their tooling through the metal panel is essential. Specialized PDR lights cast a specific light contrast onto the panel of the vehicle; creating dark and bright spots that amplify the texture. Think of this process like using a zoom or magnification feature so that every tiny detail and imperfection on the body is easily identifiable.
      With proper lighting, the technician can see through the panel and make the right pushes to restore the panel back to its original position. Moreover, it ensures that the repair is completed to the highest level of perfection and as if no damage ever occurred to the area. 
      Trained technicians use the PDR technique to remove small dents and dings from vehicle bodies with ease, as it helps avoid repainting the affected parts. It allows vehicle owners to elude expensive repairs such as replacing vehicle panels or even repainting the whole vehicle to match the repaired part. However, sharper dents may still require traditional auto body repair.
      On the other hand, traditional auto body repair typically involves welding steel pins into the sheet metal and filling in the gaps with fillers (plastic or glass). Conventional repair, more often than not, requires spraying tons of layers of harmful chemicals, in efforts to bring the sheet metal closest to its factory-set shape, as you wait for weeks with your vehicle parked at the workshop.

      Bad shock absorbers – dangerous driving. The vehicle is due to their failure poorly manageable, the wheels have little traction with the road surface. This also leads to a malfunction of the brake system. The main task, which is carried out shock absorber in car, is to control and hold the wheel while driving. This avoids losing control of the vehicle.
      Shock absorbers are also designed to damp vibrations that occur when driving on an uneven surface, off-road and when the speed changes. Springs do not always cope with the load. Consequently, the safety of the vehicle and passengers directly depends on the shock absorber. Therefore, it is necessary to pay special attention to the selection of these parts of the chassis of the car.
      The structure and types of shock absorbers
      Shock absorbers consist of a cylinder with a piston inside and a valve mechanism. The combination of such elements in this system allows you to damp the vibrations in a timely manner and prevent the car from swaying violently.
      Varieties by the principle of action
      The most common are hydraulic and gas shock absorbers:
      Hydraulic shock absorbers put out the vibrations of the elastic elements of the suspension using oil that flows from one tank to another through a valve system. Gas shock absorbers they also use liquid, but it is preliminarily “squeezed” by a small volume of gas. Varieties in structure
      Two-pipe . Single-tube with gas pressure. Two-pipe with gas pressure. Single-tube have advantages, because the liquid in this device does not overheat. They are also practical: the housing can be installed up and down.
      Two-pipe ones consist of two cavities, one has a piston with valves, and the second is necessary to partially fill it with oil and air. If they are absent or too few in design, then the shock absorber stops working or is compressed without resistance. In the event of such malfunctions, it is necessary to contact a car service or service station that has equipment for repairing shock absorbers. This device will restore the performance of parts.
      Diagnostics of malfunctions of shock absorbers and the main causes of their failure
      Checking the fault is quite simple:
      If during driving the car does not shake and extraneous noise is not heard, then the shock absorbers function normally. If in motion there are problems with braking, smooth running, fitting into a turn, and also the car cannot gain a certain speed, then it is necessary to pay attention to the condition of the shock absorbers. Such problems can lead to an accident caused by an increase in wheel slip vibration. Most often, the main cause of the breakdown may be leakage of fluid through a damaged seal. This can happen in such cases:
      Wear of the sealing material due to friction. Sudden change in temperature. Dirt and dust are trapped in the shock absorber. Gas or air are trapped in the shock absorber. To avoid breakdowns, it is necessary to seek the help of professionals in a timely manner, who will make a diagnosis and restore the parts if necessary. This can help special nozzles that are used to repair gas-oil shock absorber. They allow you to pumping gas, add fluid, and also control the pressure process.
      Equipment for repairing shock absorbers is a special device that will allow specialists to restore the main part of the suspension quickly and efficiently. In total
      The oil and gas parts of the undercarriage are important elements in the design of the car. They are responsible for its performance, safety during movement. Today, A-PROFI Company provides an opportunity to protect yourself and your car by manufacturing quality restoration equipment that meets all the requirements of modern automotive industry. You can study or buy equipment for the restoration of shock absorbers on our website.
