How Do We Rebuild Motors.

Reconditioning is the repair process that we employ to bring used vehicles back to like-new condition. This is how we are able to confidently sell a safe, good-looking, well-performing vehicle. After numerous years in the business, we have distilled the process down to eight simple steps:

Machine Recesses & Why They are Necessary.

The information in this section will help you create and edit Recess Turning operations in your manufacturing program.

The Recess Turning operation allows you to machine a recess by means of a One Way, Zig Zag or Parallel Contour tool motion. 

external, internal, frontal or inclined machining according to the type of area to machine

various approach and retract path types

various lead-in and lift-off options with specific federates

Tooling for Recess Turning

The following tooling may be used:

External and Internal insert-holders with all insert types except groove and thread. 

Internal, External and Frontal Groove insert-holders with groove and trigon inserts.
Refer to Trigon Insert Used on a Groove Insert-holder for more information about this tooling configuration.

Note that the following attributes may influence machining (they are located on the Insert-holder's Technology tab):

  • Gouging angle
  • Trailing angle
  • Leading angle
  • Max Recessing Depth
  • Max Cutting Depth
  • Max Boring Depth.

These attributes take tooling accessibility into account and may reduce the machined area.
However, you can use the Insert-Holder Constraints option on the operation editor to either ignore or apply these tooling attributes. You can replay the operation to verify the influence of these attributes on the generated tool path.

Note that the Insert-Holder Constraints setting does not influence the Gouging Safety Angle or the Leading and Trailing Safety Angles defined in the operation editor.

Offsets can be positive or negative with any absolute value. The global offset applied to the part profile is the resulting value of the normal, axial and radial offsets.

5. CUT POLISH

All vehicles lose their exterior finish over time, and gravel-laden roads accelerate that aging. All reconditioned vehicles receive a cut polish service to remove any imperfections such as swirl marks or scratches. All trucks also receive an undercoating to protect against chassis rust, dramatically extending the vehicle’s life.

6. BODY REPAIR

In step 6, all auto body imperfections are corrected. This includes dent repair and chip filling. If new panels are required, we’ll completely replace them. No expenses are spared during this step, leaving you with a nearly perfect looking vehicle.

7. FINISHING TOUCHES

In step 7 the final small details are perfected. We’ll ensure that every last inch is sparkling.

8. MECHANICAL INSPECTION

The final step of our reconditioning process is a mechanical inspection. In this step, a certified technician inspects the entire vehicle from inside-out to ensure it meets industry standards. This certification guarantees that your vehicle is safe and mechanically sound.
