ZF Aftermarket Remanufacturing –

The Sustainable Alternative

ZF Aftermarket remanufacturing – remanufacturing used ZF parts

We remanufacture used components – saving money and protecting the environment. Our colleagues from Nottingham in the United Kingdom show how it works.

Highest Quality Standards

With Technology Update

Used parts are anything but scrap at ZF Aftermarket. Remanufactured components from ZF Aftermarket comply with the state of the art. If the volume production product is further developed, these enhancements are also implemented during remanufacturing. A technical upgrade is included, just as is the warranty.

In accordance with the strict standards from volume production, during remanufacturing the units pass through the same demanding processes, measurements and tests as a volume production product. Naturally that also includes the observance of the latest quality and environmental standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, but also customer-specific requirements such as TS 16949.

Sustainable Environmental Protection –

For the Sake of the Future

Remanufacturing is not only easy on the wallet, but also actively contributes to environmental protection. Remanufacturing parts is much more efficient than, say, recycling materials. Compared with manufacturing a new product between 50 and 90 percent less material is required to remanufacture a used unit. By specifically reusing components, energy consumption and CO₂ emissions are also reduced by up to 90 percent in the best-case scenario.

ZF Aftermarket remanufacturing – testing and return to the market

Testing + return to the market

Following assembly, the remanufactured products are subject to functional testing on the test bench. Afterwards, the industrially remanufactured product goes directly back into the market – with the same high quality as in the original equipment and with the same good properties with regard to safety, reliability and driving dynamics that you come to expect from a ZF product.
