MASTERY OF BODY WORK
MASTERY OF BODY WORK
Fixing collision damage with a stellar outcome is a matter of workmanship and knowledge in auto manufacturers' design and production processes. High quality auto body work mandates indepth understanding of continuously changing complex technologies that use advanced materials and integrated, computerized systems. Your vehicle is one of the most intricate technologies you possess; much more than mechanical machinery.
Many aspects of auto body work are hands-on, requiring expertise to render a seamless finish and surface. As collision repair specialists, we invest in every detail to produce quality body work on each make and model of vehicle to restore an original design. Auto body repair involves re-building vehicles to restore their condition by straightening structural components and panels, splicing sections in the frame, reconstructing suspension and vehicle interior modules, molding auto body surfaces, and spot welding assembled components. To render this level of repair, extensive knowledge of metal types and configurations, metal working, materials management, welding, and attachment methodologies are necessary to produce good results.
To match your car's or truck's manufactured appearance and structural integrity, you want collision technicians with certified training (such as our Infiniti, Nissan, Jeep Chyrsler, and Honda training), essential to replicate original engineering. This certification training provides insight into continuous changes in manufacturer technologies, systems, and use of advanced materials.
What difference does it really make? Automotive manufacturers use lighter aluminum (to reduce load and drag) and Ultra High Strength Steel combinations (to reduce damage levels in roll-overs or high impact) when building vehicles. After a collision impact, components of a vehicle may be compromised and significantly weakened. Knowledge of assemblage and welding in auto body repair provides insight to determine whether to replace parts or straighten support components. Think of it like a crushed can. Once crushed, pulling the can back into shape may not make the can strong enough to avoid collapsing again with any new pressure. Understanding the level of stress and affects on materials, and the limitations to fabrication processes (too much heat in welding weakens materials), plays a critical part in re-building your car or truck.
We place a high importance on quality workmanship, knowledge of fabrication materials and their physical properties, and invest in complex machining skills.
