An electric alternator as a genuine remanufactured part from Mercedes-Benz meets exacting quality requirements and standards at all times, comparable to those applicable to the new part. In our remanufacturing process, all component parts are disassembled and professionally cleaned. The threads are repaired and wear parts generally replaced with new parts. The balanced rotor provides for smooth running and excellent durability. Finally, the electric alternator is protected against corrosion using special varnishes and tested by specially trained Mercedes-Benz professionals on one of our test stands.
Three-phase alternators are used to convert mechanical kinetic energy into electrical power. In vehicle applications, these are referred to simply as alternators. In generating power, the engine drives the truck's belt drive, providing mechanical energy that the alternator converts. Energy conversion efficiency means that the conversion process consumes more energy than is produced.
Because the alternator is subject to more friction on the bearings, collectors and slip rings, these are the component parts that suffer the most wear.
A defect in one of these component parts may have the following consequences:
Quality and reliability are paramount when it comes to Mercedes-Benz Genuine Remanufactured alternators. Remanufacturing of an alternator incorporates expertise in the latest series production methods from Mercedes-Benz. That ensures a high level of quality – so much so that a remanufactured part is comparable to the equivalent new part. Not only that, but using resources smartly and economically also means that you reduce the burden on both your budget and the environment.
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!
