Remanufacturing Services

Remanufacturing is the process of taking a previously used product or part and restoring it to a like-new condition. Remanufacturing services create items that are equal to a new product in every aspect. The advantages of these newly remanufactured components are that customers can purchase them for a reduced price compared to a new one.

At Concorde Precision Machining, our goal is providing customer satisfaction through quality components. Our expertise in precision machining and industrial remanufacturing has enabled us to maintain an ISO 9001:2015 certified facility. Some examples of our remanufacturing services include:

  • Cut-down and re-bore for reciprocal and centrifugal compressors
  • Remanufacturing of heavy equipment engines
  • Remanufacturing/re-machining of compression components

Remanufacturing Capabilities

Concorde’s industrial remanufacturing services make products available to a variety of end-users. Our capabilities include:

  • Cut-down
  • Re-bore (linebores and cylinder bores)
  • Large Diameter Milling
  • Deburring
  • Trueing
  • Cleaning
  • Inspection – validation

As part of our rigorous quality assurance inspection, we use the latest PC-DMIS software in two large capacity DEA-CMM machines. For products exceeding our 200”x100”x72” lab capacity, we use a Leica Laser Tracker AT402 system. Coordinate measuring and laser inspection ensure product reliability and adherence to customer specifications for dimension and geometry.

What Is Remanufacturing?

Over recent years, manufacturers have increasingly focused on how to reuse and repurpose more materials to prevent them from filling landfills at the end of their useful life. This focus was the genesis for remanufacturing: the dismantling of products and rehabilitation of components to create a new life for old products while restoring their quality and performance to the specifications of a new product.

During the remanufacturing process, a product will be collected, inspected, disassembled, and then reconditioned with replacement parts added as necessary. The item will then be reassembled before going through quality assurance and testing to ensure the product is to specification and of high quality. Benefits of remanufacturing include:

  • Cost savings over purchasing a new product
  • Waste reduction (lower carbon footprint)
  • Lower energy costs
  • Rapid turnaround time/no wait for a new casting
  • Reduced downtime
  • Technological advances

Industries Served

Infographic describing remanufacturing services at Concorde Precision MachiningConcorde has a long history of meeting even the most difficult challenges from customers across our core industries:

  • Transportation – Products provided include engines and engine covers, skid plates, housings, heads, oil pans, large bearing caps, and more.
  • Mining – Our capabilities include providing the mining industry with vehicle bodies, gear racks, ranging arms, and axle housing and others.
  • Oil & Gas – We supply onshore and offshore drilling stations with mud/fracking pumps, connecting rods, compressor frames, and more.
  • Energy – Products for the energy industry include power generation engines, nuclear transfer carts, turbine casings, stators, and more.

In a particularly challenging request, a client required remanufacturing for a steam turbine circa 1959 that had not been opened for many years. The client asked Concorde to restore the part to OEM Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) requirements. Our senior tradespeople undertook a cut-down and rebore process that involved milling, trueing, cutting, and deburring. Once our technicians had finished cleaning the part, we used our CMM capabilities to ensure the part met OEM requirements.

The in-depth technical knowledge and experience of our tradespeople helped provide alternative solutions and ideas that ultimately enabled us to beat our promised target date by an entire week. When our client took delivery in only three weeks, the client praised the quality of machining, attention to detail, and speed of the process. Following assembly, the turbine offered clearances and concentricity similar to a brand-new machine. The shaft end and interstage seals rolled in with little or no force, and no scraping was required.
