A product is considered remanufactured if:
- Its primary components come from a used product.
- The used product is dismantled to the extent necessary to
determine the condition of its components.
- The used product’s components are thoroughly cleaned
and made free from rust and corrosion.
- All missing, defective, broken or substantially worn parts
are either restored to sound, functionally good condition, or
they are replaced with new, remanufactured, or sound, functionally
good used parts.
- To put the product in sound working condition, such machining,
rewinding, refinishing or other operations are performed as necessary.
- The product is reassembled and a determination is made that
it will operate like a similar new product.
Why Consider it for your products?
- Allows you to amortize your initial design and engineering
costs over a larger number of units.
- Frees up manufacturing capacity for new product introduction.
- Provides invaluable feedback on performance of parts and components.
- Improves margins by distribution of a lower cost, like new
- Eliminates environmental waste by reclaiming raw materials.
Why Choose Pierce as Your Remanufacturing Partner?
has the know-how and experience to assist you in evaluating the
potential benefits in the remanufacture of your
products or components. Unlike
new build assembly work, remanufacturing requires dedicated engineering
support and experienced technicians who are trained in evaluating
the re-use of parts in the component or part to be reassembled.
The capability to disassemble and clean the used components and
parts is unique to the remanufacturing process. Pierce has the
personnel, facilities and know-how, and can provide many additional
advantages to those who want to consider the remanufacture of their
- Asset Cleaning Center: we have a safe and
certified process to clean parts and collect foreign substances
that may be part of the remanufacturing process.
- DecisionASPECTS™ system: our technicians
are well trained and experienced in making the right decisions
and skillfully determining what aspects of each part and/or assembly
need to be reworked or replaced. DecisionASPECTS™ is a
training tool, and provides real time prompts and checklists
that are used by our assembly technicians during the remanufacturing
- RuleMASTER™ system: a specific
guidebook for each remanufacturing application. It captures our
customer’s requirements in detail. This book is developed
jointly by our engineering, QA and training departments. The
system is the backbone on our remanufacturing operation and enables
us meet your QUALITY, COST and DELIVERY objectives.
- PierceESTIMATOR™ system:
assists our engineers to determining how Pierce can best assist
you in your
remanufacturing needs. With your brief input and our expertise,
PierceESTIMATOR™ enables us to quickly determine the benefits
to you of a particular application.
- Proximity to National Remanufacturing Center:
Pierce is located within a few miles of the Rochester Institute
of Technology’s CIMS center (www.cims.rit.edu)
and the National Center for Remanufacturing and Resource Recovery
(NCR3; www.reman.rit.edu) which are recognized as the leading
sources for best practices related to remanufacturing. This allows
us to have the best knowledge transfer and effectiveness in meeting
our OEM’s demanding requirements.
- Engineering excellence: we have a large engineering
component which helps us problem solve and find the best ways
to help our customers recapture value from existing assets.
- Partnerships: we work with both U.S. based
and off-shore partners to deliver best value to our customers.
- Full service: for your toner cartridges we
are not simply a “refiller” but do a complete disassembly
• Office and business machines and their components
• Medical Equipment
• Other electromechanical parts and assemblies that can be reused
More about Remanufacturing
Pierce Industries’ experienced remanufacturing engineers will:
- Determine which parts in a product or subassembly are reusable.
- Generate a bill of materials and determine yield percentages.
- Feed back information to you relative to yield percentages
so you can continually evaluate the performance of parts or components
designed into your products.
- Additionally, Pierce Industries has developed international
sourcing so a customer need not know who makes what component.
- Obtain best value through the identification of global sources
Pierce Industries engineering maintains a close relationship
with Rochester Institute of Technology’s Center for Integrated
Manufacturing Studies (CIMS; www.cims.rit.edu)
and the National Center for Remanufacturing and Asset Recovery
(NCR3; www.reman.rit.edu) in order to keep up with the latest remanufacturing
strategies and methodologies.
Our Engineering Department is an
important resource for a customer’s
design department. Through the collection of field wear and usage
data on parts and components, Pierce will provide you with data
that will help you determine where designs need to be changed in
current and future products.
Traditionally, new-product assembly firms hire workers with minimal
technical ability. They can do this since no decision is required
as to whether a part is reusable or not—all parts are new.
Industries’ remanufacturing operations, however, distinguishes
itself by employing technicians who have a level of expertise
and experience necessary to determine on a part-by-part basis
or yield. That is, they are capable of making the judgment call
on whether parts can be used again or need to be refurbished
or replaced. Because of this technical expertise, starting at
operator level, Pierce Industries can give its customers yield
percentages for parts, another advantage of how Pierce Industries
can improve your bottom line.
