Our remanufactured alternators meet the high standards of quality of Mercedes-Benz in testing. All parts are cleaned and freed of corrosion, remanufactured, and tested. In the process, the threads are repaired, and small parts are always replaced with new parts. The balanced rotor provides for smooth running and excellent durability. Finally, the electric alternator is protected against corrosion by applying special paint – for a long service life.
The alternator or three-phase alternator generates electricity by converting mechanical motion to electrical energy. The running engine drives the belt drive in the vehicle, generating mechanical energy that the alternator can convert. Due to the level of efficiency, therefore, the mechanical energy input is higher than the electrical power output.
Signs of wear most commonly appear through friction in the bearings, on the commutator and in the slip rings. Other symptoms include:
Quality and reliability are paramount when it comes to Mercedes-Benz genuine alternators as remanufactured parts. Remanufacturing of an alternator incorporates expertise in the latest series production methods from Mercedes-Benz. This means that the quality and functionality of the part is comparable to a new part. It is also kind to your wallet and the environment thanks to the intelligent conservation of resources.
During our professional remanufacturing process, we take numerous measures – replacing the control unit and all small and wear parts, for example – to ensure that you benefit from the reliability you are accustomed to. Balancing the rotor ensures smooth running, while applying corrosion protection to all component parts helps to extend their longevity. See for yourself!
