The Caterpillar remanufacturing program is based on an exchange system in which customers return a used component in exchange for our remanufactured products. During the rebuild process, Caterpillar® completely refurbishes the used component. Therefore, for example, when an engine or one of its components is replaced by Cat® Remanufactured Parts, you are acquiring something with the same technical specifications as those of new parts or components in terms of operation, performance, mechanical reliability, ease of service and maintenance.
So where's the difference? In the price, since even the warranty is the same.
You can obtain parts at between 40% to 60% of the price of new parts and get the same machine performance and productivity.
With a remanufacturing program, your customers can maximize the inherent value of their equipment:
+ Ensuring maximum productivity
+ Increasing equipment reliability and uptime
+ Receiving a warranty similar to a new product
+ Increasing the customer's return on investment
+ Providing customers a variety of repair options to meet their service needs
+ Providing lower total cost of ownership and lower operational life cycle cost
+ Preserving most energy and the materials needed to manufacture the component or original machine
