THE RISE OF REMANUFACTURING
ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE
The industry has come to realise that one-way processes that take products from manufacturers to land lls are no longer sustainable. The negative environmental and economic impacts of simply discarding manufactured products have become too great to ignore.
The advancement of technology has allowed for remanufacturing to reuse parts without compromising the quality of the remanufactured product. Cummins is leading the way in sustainability and energy ef cient processes. To date, Cummins’ remanufacturing business has avoided up to 90,700 tonnes annually of greenhouse gases, reclaiming up to 27,000 tonnes of material annually.
Genuine Holset Reman Turbochargers apply innovative thinking so that new processes, stringent quality checks and rigorous testing can return products to an ‘as new’ state with the same warranty, at an affordable price.

A cross the automotive sector, transport
operators and commercial vehicle engineers
demand the reassurance
of a genuine brand turbocharger that guarantees a standard of quality and warranty for performance and durability. However, when the original product comes to the end of its lifespan and it is time to replace, operators and repair workshops are driven by cost and availability, often resulting in the use of non-genuine
parts. This can impact engine ef ciency, reliability and even safety.
GENUINE BENEFITS WITH UP TO 30 PER CENT LESS COST
Genuine Holset® RemanTM offers customers a superior quality replacement option
that meets Original Equipment (OE) speci cations with the same warranty as new Holset turbochargers but with up to 30 per cent lower cost.
“Holset turbochargers have set the standard for turbocharger technology for over 60 years,” said Greg Hammon, Assistant Chief Engineer for Turbo Aftermarket. “Engineered and manufactured by Cummins, Genuine Holset Reman Turbochargers are remanufactured using patented components and assembly to ensure the highest standard of product quality. Using 100 per cent genuine parts, the turbochargers follow a rigorous process of remanufacture to ensure every part is
examined, cleaned, tested and restored to meet OE speci cations using state of the art facilities in a factory setting.”
It’s this attention to detail and
precise speci cations that deliver proven reliability and durability. Critical wear parts such as seals, thrust plates and bearings are automatically replaced, while bore and shaft straightness are measured with tolerances as small as one micron.
A strand of hair is 75 microns.
QUICK REPLACEMENT SOLUTION
Time is of the essence in commercial vehicle repair and maintenance. Downtime costs money. Non-genuine parts frequently present buyers with what looks like a cost-effective solution.
“Unfortunately, though, this is usually only a quick  x,” Hammon adds. “In the long run, what we actually see is that non- genuine parts ultimately cost businesses and operators more money.”
A Genuine Holset Reman Turbocharger not only provides initial cost savings at 30 per cent less than new Holset turbochargers, it also guarantees reliability with improved fuel ef ciency. Non-genuine
turbos are often poorly machined
and can expose the engine and
its performance systems to complications in safety, engine power, additional costs to repair or replace parts over the life of the engine and also can lead to increased fuel consumption and higher emissions.
