A step-by-step guide to a Cat Component Rebuild

Here’s how we do it:

1. Component disassembly: each component is completely disassembled and inspected by our specialised technicians. We identify which components can be reused or reconditioned and where we might need to replace with new Cat components.

2. Components cleaned: grime and grit is removed through our various in house wash systems which include; blast booth, industrial turn table washers and hot tanks to suit the largest pieces of Cat equipment. These pieces of equipment were specifically chosen to meet our high standards of cleanliness for component rebuilds.

3. Engineering updates: When critical technological improvements have been made since the original manufacture we can incorporate these into your component. We can also include optional upgrades at your request.

4. Component reassembly: Our specialised technicians have the latest specifications and procedures at their fingertips with dedicated service computers within each bay. All components are checked and measured at critical assembly points to ensure the renowned Cat reliability and performance is maintained.

5. Performance testing: you can trust that your components are ready to go as our class leading engine dyno rooms and transmission test benches give your component one last test to ensure that field performance levels match those in the shop.

6. Painting: as part of the rebuild all components are painted in house to look as fresh as new. Prior to shipment your component is sealed and wrapped to ensure our high levels of contamination control are kept.

7. Customer evaluation: we’re not happy unless you’re happy so a customer evaluation after you’ve got your machine back out in the working environment is the final step in the rebuild process.
