Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center To Unveil New Lightweight Frame for Specialty Cars at 2017 SEMA Show

Plymouth, Mich. — The Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center announced today plans to unveil their newly engineered lightweight aftermarket frames at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nev., Oct. 31-Nov. 3. Show attendees will be the first to see models of the lightweight alternative for replacing frames on nearly any specialty vehicle. Although not yet in production, this forward-looking engineering could give specialty car owners access to an affordable, stiffer and safer car frame option in the future.

The Center, a representative of the MEP National Network, collaborated with Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow, The Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation and the University of Tennessee, Center for Industrial Services Institute for Public Service to create the frame. Although multiple lightweight materials are integrated into the frame’s design, the engineering and design team was able to keep the cost comparable to current production steel frames.

You Asked: Is Ceramic Coating Worth It?

Is Ceramic Coating Worth It?

For any car or boat owner, keeping a car's paint or boats fiberglass and gel coat pristine is always a challenge. The go-to solution has always been the tried and tested application of wax from day one of purchase. Periodic applications (sometimes frequent reapplication) of the same is needed to maintain the wax coat, as it is slowly removed via exposure to the elements.

Times are changing, however, and so has finishing and refinishing technology. Automotive paint nowadays is a bit different and boats have gel coat and painted surfaces. On cars, instead of piling layer upon layer of color pigment to produce a deep shine, a somewhat 'sacrificial' clear topcoat is now applied to give the paint luster. Wax, of course, is still the go-to, as is its frequent reapplication.

3M AUTO’S NEW BODY REPAIR SANDING SHEETS FEATURE PROPRIETARY PRECISION-SHAPED GRAIN TECHNOLOGY FOR A MORE CONSISTENT FINISH

Rust and dents are inevitable, but with the help of the industry’s strongest abrasives technology, they can also be quickly and effectively repaired. To help drivers resolve these issues conveniently and affordably, 3M Auto today announced the launch of its revolutionary 3M™ Precision Shaped Grain Sheets.

3M™’s proprietary Precision-Shaped Grain technology is engineered to act like a cutting tool, slicing through metal up to five times longer for increased productivity.
