Your drivetrain and powertrain are critical, and when either fails, it will leave your equipment and vehicles idling fruitless until repaired or replaced. This loss of precious time can put you behind schedule and over budget. Worse still, it can delay what your clients depend on you to deliver. Therefore, when it comes to your drivetrain and powertrain, we recommend investing the time and resources required to remanufacture them rather than spending resources and wasting time when they fail.
When To Remanufacture a Drivetrain or Powertrain
Your drivetrain will alert you to emerging problems that require prompt attention. Common signs that your drivetrain is damaged include persistent vibration and/or shuddering, irregular sounds, difficulty turning the vehicle, fluid leaks, grinding noises, difficulty putting the vehicle into gear, or diminished performance.
Similarly, your powertrain will warn you that it’s time for service. In addition to slipped gears and burning smells, fluid leaks, grinding, shaking, and odd noises can all signal a powertrain that’s on its last gear.
The drivetrain and powertrain remanufacturing process will resolve these issues and more. It is an effective alternative to replacement or continual investment in ongoing repairs. Most importantly, prompt and proper remanufacturing can protect your vehicle from further damage and preserve its ability to generate the revenue your business needs to remain profitable.
The Benefits of Remanufacturing Your Drivetrain or Powertrain
We completely disassemble the affected component, whether it’s your transmission, engine, axle, wheels, differential, or other damaged component. This allows us to determine which elements of the component are salvageable, and which need to be replaced. Our thorough approach to drivetrain and powertrain remanufacturing allows us to deliver an end product that is sturdy, durable, and nearly identical to one fresh from the assembly line. Most importantly, our remanufactured components meet or exceed the performance level of a factory-manufactured replacement.
Because of the thorough remanufacturing processes we perform, all finished components will be free of rust and corrosion, and all defective or worn-out parts will be replaced. We also do far more than simply replace damaged and worn-out components, we perform the additional machining and inspections necessary to ensure the remanufactured item is completed and delivered to factory specifications. This means that the end product will be built to go the distance. You will enjoy the same performance and operation as an OEM system.
Finally, roughly 80% to 85% of the material is saved and reused. This minimizes the environmental impact of the process and results in an efficient, eco-friendly procedure. It is a fast and effective process that will help “green up” your fleet.
Our Remanufacturing Process
Our teams are highly trained specialists who will carefully disassemble the damaged system. We will note any deficiencies and damaged components and compile a thorough report of the elements that require machining and the components that require replacing. Once we compile a detailed report on the condition, we will draft a remanufacturing plan to govern the remanufacturing process.
At Central Power Systems & Services, we thoroughly test and inspect each component for fit and function throughout the remanufacturing process. From start to finish, the remanufacturing process can take as little as a few days, or as long as a few weeks, depending on the complexity of the system and the amount of work that needs to be performed. As always, we will provide a thorough summary of the work we need to do and provide a timeline for delivering the finished component(s).
