Thousands of motor vehicles are damaged in traffic accidents every day. Autobody repair technicians must safely repair this damage. However, it can be challenging because each damaged vehicle presents a different problem. Autobody repair technicians must develop appropriate methods for each job, using their broad knowledge of automotive construction and repair techniques. A professional repairer will be able to use several techniques.
Autobody Repair technicians first diagnose damage often with the aid of computerised equipment. Technicians then must restore damaged vehicles without compromising structural integrity, function, and appearance so they will perform as designed, especially in subsequent collisions. They work with a variety of metals and plastics, as well as glass, electrical, and mechanical parts. Welding skills are an essential part of the repair process.
Autobody Repair technicians use panel repairing equipment, and structural realignment and measuring devices. Specialty hand and power tools are used to remove or repair damaged parts, and properly install new parts. The technician repairs the vehicle to the stage to which it can be painted.
