KENOSHA, Wis. (Jan. 17, 2014) — Snap-On Tools is sponsoring a tour of its corporate Innovation Center and seminar for participants at the Auto TECH Expo April 3-5 in Chicago.

Snap-On Tools, a subsidiary of Snap-On Inc., said the event in Kenosha on the morning of April 3 will include a tour of the center's auto-technology lab; the Snap-on Museum, showing memorabilia dating to the company's founding in 1920; its prototyping and 3D modeling facility; and its training center.

There will also be a technical seminar by Jim Moritz, Snap-on's national training manager — "Breaking Good: Vehicle Sensors as a Diagnostic Tool" — which will discuss how to read oxygen, zirconia, titanium, lambda and other sensor technologies.

Snap-On said the seminar will range from the basics of oxygen-sensor operation to tuning engine performance using the exhaust sensors as a diagnostic tool.

A spokesperson for Snap-On said the first 120 people to sign up for seminars will ride in buses to Kenosha, take part in the tour and attend the Snap-on seminar there. The rest of that day's seminars will start at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare after the group returns.

Auto TECH Expo is a three-day trade show and conference focused on engine diagnostics, automotive repair, transmission and undercar. It is organized by Undercar Digest and Transmission Digest. For more information, visit www.autotechexpo.net.

Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?

I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.

I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.

I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.

I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.

I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.
