A Concept of Fully Recycling Automatic Transmissions 982184

Used ATs (automatic transmissions) in the market were analyzed using a remanufacturing process, and causes of troubles/defects were investigated. By providing specific parts of an AT with sufficiently ample working-stress levels at the design stage, the remanufacturing cycle can be better controlled and managed, while still maintaining the quality of ATs at the highest levels. Scheduled part changes performed as part of this process successfully make an AT returnable to new-car assembly lines for reinstallation. This fully recycled AT enables reductions in steel and aluminum consumption, and thus contributes substantially to environmental protection efforts.
