Caterpillar's world's first regenerative excavator delivered in Shanghai

On January 18, 2010, Caterpillar, the world's largest earth-moving machinery and equipment manufacturer, held the ceremony for the delivery of the first reclaimed excavator in Shanghai. The first user of the aircraft was Shanghai Gaochun Construction Engineering Co., Ltd., Caterpillar. The people in the industry were introduced to the concept of recycling second-hand equipment, which is of great significance for the current domestic market of domestic excavators that is too chaotic and lacks effective management and equipment recycling.

Chinese users feel "CAT regeneration concept"

At the site of the second-hand reclaimed excavator delivery, Zhang Xianfeng, second-hand equipment consultant of Caterpillar's Beijing headquarters, Chen Shifeng, general manager of Caterpillar Shanghai Branch, Fu Yaosheng, chairman of Lixingxing Machinery (Kunshan) Cable Co., Ltd., and Lixingxing Machinery (Yangzhou) Zhu Chang, general manager of the company?

The equipment delivered by Caterpillar was recovered from the used excavator market. Unlike “remanufactured equipment,” the equipment was not refurbished and remanufactured at the Caterpillar plant, but was refurbished by domestic agents. In particular, all the engines, hydraulic pumps, and hydraulic motors used in the original used equipment were all forcibly updated (replacement to remanufactured parts or new parts), and key hydraulic components such as hydraulic cylinders were all refurbished, and their chassis life was not to be low. 75% of the new chassis. After the user purchases the equipment, he also enjoys the service of repairing the new machine. It is understood that the Taiwan CAT320C hydraulic excavator's price is equivalent to 75-80% of the new model of the same model, performance is basically close to the new machine.

Caterpillar second-hand equipment consultant Zhang Xianfeng spoke highly of the importance of the remanufactured second-hand excavator delivery activities, and detailed introduced the performance characteristics of the equipment and the services enjoyed by users in the later period. Subsequently, Fu Yaosheng, Chairman of Lixingxing Machinery (Kunshan) Co., Ltd., held a grand handover ceremony with the users. The main guests and the users were photographed.

In addition, we know that unlike the concept of “regeneration”, the so-called “ remanufacturing ” concept refers to the complete dismantling and renovating of old machinery and equipment in accordance with the model of the manufacturing industry. It is the remanufacturing of components such as engines. The process, unlike general maintenance, is that the remanufactured product has exactly the same performance and quality as the new product.

In 1973, Caterpillar began to enter the field of remanufacturing. In 2004, Caterpillar became one of the largest industrial remanufacturers in the world after it completed the acquisition of three companies in the remanufacturing industry. It employs 2,500 people. Remanufacturing has also become a non-negligible business sector for this multinational company. Remanufacturing accounts for nearly 4% of Caterpillar's global turnover.

Domestic secondary market development is in its infancy

In foreign countries, remanufacturing has experienced more than 30 years of development and has become an important part of the circular economy. In the production process, remanufacturing, whether it is invested in the production line or in the consumption of energy and raw materials, means huge savings. Compared with the manufacturing of new products, on average, 70% of the components of remanufacturing can be reused, and over 80% of energy consumption such as electricity and water can be saved in the manufacturing process.

The average price of remanufactured products is only 30%-40% of that of the latter compared with similar new products. Therefore, it is very cost-effective for customers to purchase remanufactured products themselves. At the same time, in the Western consumer culture, Caterpillar's production of construction machinery, engines and other products, for many customers is not just a product, but also an investment. At the end of a machine's traditional product life cycle, remanufacturing is equivalent to extending its life at low cost, creating additional value.

According to statistics, in recent years, although the market for used construction machinery and equipment in China has shown vigorous development, the market as a whole is still at a primary stage of development. The lack of supervision over the development of the industry and the lack of overall planning of the market layout have many problems.

The main problem is reflected in the current 80% of used-equipment trading volume is non-manufacturer's natural person's management; manufacturer's participation in transaction volume is less than 5% of the total market transaction; operating mode is at a lower level The acquisition and sale of used equipment in the front, followed by the so-called refurbishment, technical strength is weak, that is, pull gold, paint and electrical welding, and more to take clean-up, minor repairs, and even without the direct disposal of processing disposal methods.

In addition, many second-hand equipment transactions are mostly primary and first-hand goods, do not sign a formal contract, do not provide sales invoices, and cannot provide quality assurance and after-sales services for used equipment sold. The second-hand equipment business households are mostly self-employed and lack the awareness of risks. Most of them did not have the consciousness of signing sales service contracts when they traded. Some users did not have a long time to complete the equipment failure, and there was no corresponding after-sales service. In addition, assemblages, thefts, and smuggling equipment are flooded in the city and unscrupulous traders profit from it. In many places, the market for second-hand equipment trading is very simple and the environment is harsh. The smuggling of used equipment to disrupt the market order is also a prominent issue at present.

According to Zhang Xianfeng, thousands of Caterpillar equipment are circulated among different groups in the current market, and non-professional repairs. The unscrupulous businessmen's profit-seeking interests seriously reduce the economic efficiency of Caterpillar brand equipment. And efficiency has damaged the reputation of the Caterpillar brand.

Caterpillar reclaimed used equipment turned out

Caterpillar and its agents have used Caterpillar's powerful technology and dealers' strong network and geographic advantages to launch a series of second-hand equipment products that customers trust in China. These include:

Caterpillar certified second-hand equipment ---- mainly to select new machines with an age of less than three years. Starting from the new machine, these devices undergo professional and regular maintenance. After being certified, they are subject to strict Carter global standard testing and maintenance. This machine can provide users with a power system and hydraulic system warranty period of at least six months.

Agency certification Used equipment ---- For the second mobile phone that can not meet the Carter certification requirements but the quality is very good, agents can provide their own certification and warranty.

Caterpillar's used second-hand equipment has reached the first life cycle of the product. For users who have lost the economic value of the equipment, Caterpillar trades or repurchases, and then undergoes rigorous testing and maintenance. In the equipment that re-enters the market, this product conforms to the country's policy direction of "circular economy", "saving society", and "energy saving and emission reduction", and at the same time provides users with a higher cost performance.

Caterpillar products are designed with new products in mind that the life of the main components has to reach three life cycles, and Carter's reclaimed used equipment is now Caterpillar's second lifecycle product.

All remanufactured equipment uses Caterpillar 's globally unified maintenance process flow and standards, including the replacement of all non- Caterpillar approved accessories; the engine, hydraulic pump, and hydraulic motor are all forcibly replaced by Caterpillar's new assembly or Upgraded work-in-progress remanufactured assembly that meets or exceeds the original machine's new part standards; all hydraulic cylinders are tested and repaired according to Caterpillar's camber, scratch, and wear standards; all hydraulic hoses are all forced Replaced with original Caterpillar new pipe, replacing all hydraulic system seals of the entire vehicle; high standard undercarriage system - new or not less than 75% of service life (indicated) in all four wheels; all structural parts are subject to fatigue inspection, If there is a problem, replace the new accessories; all re-use parts are all strictly tested by Caterpillar standards, and the boom and stick are all reinforced even if they pass the test; the new bucket is used.

At the same time, Caterpillar provides complete repair and test reports; it provides warranty periods that are very similar to the new ones, including power and hydraulic system one year or 3,000 hours (whichever comes first); replacement of new equipment hour tables; An informed sign for the original working hours of the aircraft. In addition, Caterpillar financing support is also provided.

Relevant information:

In July 2006, Caterpillar's first remanufacturing company opened its business in Shanghai Lingang Industrial Park. Caterpillar hopes to build the Shanghai base into the largest remanufacturing and logistics center in the Asia Pacific region. The company is mainly responsible for recycling and manufacturing in China. Equipment, in order to expand the scope of business and reclaim old parts of non-homemade equipment for remanufacturing.

In the first half of 2009, Caterpillar, the US engineering machinery giant, established a remanufacturing recycling point for consumer terminals in Shunde and Chengdu with the cooperation of two local agents. As part of a sustainable strategy, the manufacturer of the global construction machinery industry and power system is migrating the remanufacturing system to China.
