The session will be led by Abey Abraham, Principal, Automotive and Materials, Ducker Carlisle and Bertrand Rakoto, Director, Strategic Intelligence, Ducker Carlisle.
This presentation and panel will outline expected metallic and non-metallic material strategies that collision repair facilities will encounter. As ICE vehicles continue to transition to EVs and other alternate fuels, there are dynamic changes in the material makeup of vehicles including more advanced grades of steel, various types of aluminum, magnesium, and composites that the collision repair industry will need to contend with.
Following the Ducker Carlisle presentation, the team will introduce OEM engineers on stage to discuss material selection and design in their particular models, and what the industry will need to understand when repairing.
