Hitachi Construction Machinery has expanded its parts remanufacturing business to seven countries including Japan. In Japan, the Hitachinaka Works serves as the central hub of our remanufacturing plants. Overseas, Zambia, Australia, and Indonesia are our main hubs, and at these three sites we primarily offer repairs and remanufacturing of large parts dedicated for mining machinery. I provide technical support for those hubs and plants.
In order for a mining machinery to keep operating, regular parts replacement is a necessity.
By keeping remanufactured parts ready, replacement can be undertaken on site, costs can be kept lower than by substituting new parts, and the machine downtime can be reduced.In terms of these advantages there are increasing needs for remanufactured parts.
On the other hand, the operating rate of a mine is susceptible to changes in the demand for resources, which also impacts the frequency of machinery parts replacement.
Amid such circumstances we suggest appropriate replacement periods based on information on past replacements and feedback from our customers on site.
We are also striving to optimize our proposals for customers by utilizing ConSite which monitors machinery’s operating status.
