to your older equipment when new parts are no longer available
or hard to get? As we look back on machines of yesterday, we need
to be able to understand and appreciate how remanufacturing
keeps older machines performing like new. As the cores come in
from older equipment, remanufacturers bring them back to life.
Simply put, remanufactured parts can extend the lifecycle of your
Finally, it should be noted that remanufacturing is generally more
environmentally-friendly than other types of manufacturing. On
the whole, it requires less energy to remanufacture parts than it does
to create them. Remanufacturing derives its raw materials from
parts that already exist which conserves natural resources and saves
energy - no mining, smelting, refining or casting is required.
When it comes to value, remanufactured parts have a lot to
offer. Now more than ever, equipment owners recognize the value
of OEM remanufactured parts because of their quality, warranty
coverage and affordability. Remanufactured parts are a great way
to ensure your construction equipment stays in top-running form
for years to come.

The components are then assembled
using precise work instructions according
to OEM specifications. Finally, the assembled part is once again tested to ensure it
meets OEM performance requirements. The
remanufacturing process virtually eliminates all of the possible defects within a part
and ensures you get a superior product. This
is one of the main reasons remanufactured
parts often have better warranty protection
than new ones - because it's easy to stand
behind a part that has been through the
rigors of remanufacturing.
One of the biggest advantages to installing
remanufactured parts is a significant cost
savings. When construction equipment
owners rely on remanufactured parts to keep
their machines running, they benefit from
the lower cost of ownership for the life of
those machines. Another cost consideration
As most construction equipment owners
will attest, a machine down is money down
the drain. So it's important to note that
many remanufactured parts are drop-in
assemblies, which can be installed quickly.
Instead of having a machine out of service
while waiting for an engine to be rebuilt, for
example, you can install a remanufactured
engine in much less time. Saving you time,
saving you money - remanufactured parts
are the right choice for construction equipment owners.
One of the more unique aspects of remanufacturing is the benefit of hindsight. As
exchanged parts (cores) come in, it's pretty
easy to see where they failed. If a failure
trend is identified, then improvements to
the remanufactured part can be made and
included in the work instructions thereafter.
At our CASE Construction remanufacturing
plant, this data is directed back upstream
to engineering so that the improvement is
incorporated into the new part design. As
you can see, having the benefit of hindsight
is why remanufactured parts are sometimes
described as being "better than new."
And speaking of hindsight, what happens
