Eleven free workshops on collision-damage repair
Given the great popularity of the bodywork and painting courses held in 2012, Automechanika Frankfurt is expanding the range of training courses at this year’s fair. There will be 11 workshops aimed at employees from collision-damage repair workshops, automobile appraisers, vocational-school teachers and instructors from independent training facilities.

* Exterior bodywork dent removal (without re-spraying / large areas)
* Body repairs using bench-type straighteners (including electronic body alignment)
* Joining techniques and equipment (bonding, riveting, welding)
* Body bonding and sealing (plastic repair / body sealing seam / roof panel replacement / windscreen bonding)
* Body repairs on a BMW i3 (working on carbon-reinforced plastic and aluminium body parts, as well as plastic outer-skin parts)
* Spot paintwork, preparation and finish
* Spot paintwork with a spray gun
* Fault-memory read-out / fault diagnosis
* Chassis diagnosis / camera calibration
 
The practice-oriented workshops are sponsored by Audatex, Akademie deutsches Kraftfahrzeugewerbe (TAK), BASF Coatings/Glasurit, Beissbarth, BMW, Robert Bosch, Carbon, Car-O-Liner, Farécla, Festool, Henkel AG, L-Tec, Adam Opel, Sehon, Vosschemie and Wieländer + Schill.

‘Collision Repair Process Management’ Congress
For the first time, Messe Frankfurt is participating in the European ‘Collision Repair Process Management (CRPM)’ project as an Associated Partner. The project has been conducted by the Techno and Education Department of the University of Bremen together with Project Partners from six European countries. The results of the study show two EU-level stages for training as a collision-repair process manager: the technical level (core competencies) and the bachelor level (integrated competencies), which include workshop management and micro-economic analysis. The results of the project will be presented during the international ‘Collision Repair Process Management’ congress in the ‘Portalhaus’ of Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre during the fair on Sept. 19. Additionally, the University of Bremen will provide information about the EU project and its areas of activity at its exhibition stand in the Galleria.
