20 years overhauling major components and able to service every one of them, from engine to final drive, for the largest off highway trucks in the world, are our credentials to be the most reliable aftermarket company in the world. Between our 5 rebuild centers, located in 5 different countries, we are overhauling 250+ major components every year, for diesel and diesel electric applications.
With over 100 tweaks, upgrades and developments, our CAT® 3516 overhaul service allows us to solve the challenge that high altitude mining poses. These engines are able to go well over their expected lifetime (in some cases, over 27%), and are constantly performing at over 4.000 masl, for more than 20.000 hours.
Thanks to precise mechanic and electronic calibration for each mine site’s altitude level, our injectors allows the engine to share the load uniformally on each cylinder. By working in a pollution free, temperature controlled lab setting, we can consistently gauge measurements down to a micrometer level, making our injectors reliable and precie, time after time. Furthermore, by identifying the parts that tend to break prematurely, we have developed stronger, better adapted for fatigue and erosion resistant parts, extending even further the lives of these injectors, thus lowering our customers maintenance costs.
In order to extend the Final Drive’s life, we have identified and improved several key parts and procedures. More precise and stricter preload procedures, coupled with bearings able to operate in the presence of fine metal particles and shaving, as well as slower degradating polimers on face seals, allows us to extend their working hours after each overhaul.
