Auto body repairs

Auto body work demonstrate the all-round competence of the authorized dealerships and bring in good revenue.

Constantly increasing demands on crash behavior, pedestrian protection and the call for weight reduction have led to the increased use of high-performance steel, new materials and material combinations in new vehicle engineering. At the same time, vehicles must be easy to repair. These requirements pose a great challenge to vehicle manufacturers and repairers. Authorized repair shops are supposed to continue to be able to professionally repair modern auto body structures according to the manufacturer's specifications. This is why the VDIK members are increasingly working towards implementing these demanding repair requirements in the repair shops and in the area of auto body training. The necessary repair information was validated and made available. The VDIK has also held talks with the German Federation of Body and Automotive Engineering (ZKF) in order to see if there is an opportunity for fruitful cooperation.
