Reman 8.0 Cost Effective and Green Solution for Complexity of Electronics Systems

As deal­ers will tell you, it’s near­ly aston­ish­ing to find out about all of the elec­tron­ics sys­tems built into the dash­board and under the hood of new vehi­cles sold these days. There are 20-to-30 elec­tron­ics con­trol mod­ules built into new vehi­cles and the com­plex­i­ty is get­ting deep­er with each new mod­el year, said Mark Shas­teen, vice pres­i­dent of CTDI’s auto­mo­tive busi­ness seg­ment. CTDI, based in West Chester, Penn., is focused on vehi­cle elec­tron­ics reman­u­fac­tur­ing and logis­tics, and recent­ly launched Reman 8.0, a one-stop solu­tion. Cus­tomers lever­age CTDI’s 38 years of tech­ni­cal exper­tise in micro­elec­tron­ics and mecha­tron­ics, test engi­neer­ing, and indus­try lead­ing reman­u­fac­tur­ing capa­bil­i­ties. CTDI works with automak­ers, deal­ers, Tier One sup­pli­ers, and retail ser­vice chains to stream­line the repair process and con­tain costs. The com­pa­ny works with clients to reduce costs, reuse parts and com­po­nents, and in meet­ing their green, sus­tain­abil­i­ty tar­gets.

CTDI and oth­er reman­u­fac­tur­ing com­pa­nies play a cru­cial role in keep­ing vehi­cle oper­a­tional; that’s get­ting trick­i­er in the US mar­ket where the aver­age age of vehi­cles on the streets is now 11 years old. Reman 8.0 is offer­ing turnkey solu­tions includ­ing engi­neer­ing, test­ing, logis­tics, and IT sys­tems. When work­ing with its clients, CTDI is able to sal­vage and reman­u­fac­ture more than 90% of the vehicle’s elec­tron­ics parts and com­po­nents, Shas­teen said.

There’s a lot of met­als, plas­tic, glass, fab­rics, and oth­er mate­ri­als that go into new vehi­cles in a nation expect­ed to sell more than 15 mil­lion new units this year, and in a world antic­i­pat­ed to see 83.5 mil­lion sold (as pre­dict­ed by LMC Auto­mo­tive). A lot of peo­ple are won­der­ing what will hap­pen to all the old light-duty pas­sen­ger vehi­cles stored in land­fills, junk­yards, and their neighbor’s dri­ve­way. Reman­u­fac­tur­ing offers automak­ers, sup­pli­ers, deal­ers, and ser­vice providers a strat­e­gy for address­ing envi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­i­ty tar­gets through a cost effec­tive, prof­itable busi­ness mod­el. “It’s cost effec­tive, green, and viable,” Shas­teen said.
