it to yourself to change your perception of R&R!
The term R&R normally stands for “rest & relaxation”.
At Joseph Industries, R&R stands for “remanufacture and
return”. For over
60 years, we have given our customers a little “rest &
relaxation” by providing them with quality “R&R” of their
add a little more “relaxation”, we now provide an
unsurpassed 12 month, unlimited hour, liberal labor allowance
on remanufactured industrial transmissions, as well as
remanufactured industrial torque converters.
When it comes to transmissions, many people will spend days, if
not weeks, trying to locate an in-stock transmission.
Many will even pay a premium price to get a transmission
that is on the shelf.
The perception is that an in-stock transmission is always
a better value than investing a few days to send a transmission
in for R&R. We
would like to have every transmission sitting on the shelf.
However, the reality is that it’s getting harder and
harder to find all of the cores necessary to supply every type,
style and brand of transmission that industry needs.
If you have spent 3-4 days trying to locate an in-stock
transmission with no success, then you understand the
frustration of spending your time for nothing.
An effective alternative to this growing frustration is
our transmission remanufacture and return service.
The following procedures make up a quality Joseph Industries
Remanufacture & Return:
customer calls in for transmission pricing and availability on a
unit that is not in stock, a Joseph sales representative will
provide a transmission R&R quote that will include
pre-inspection pricing, projected lead time and freight costs to
ship the transmission in and to ship the transmission back out.
tracking and quality assurance, a return authorization number is
issued to the customer for tagging their transmission core.
An RA number is established prior to receiving any
transmission core into the remanufacturing process.
This number allows the physical tracking and step by step
procedure verification of the remanufacturing process from start
remanufacturing process starts with “demanufacturing” every
transmission core down to separate, completely disassembled
“wear items” such as bearings, seals, sealing rings, clutch
frictions, clutch separator plates, springs and thrust washers
are automatically discarded at this time because they are always
remaining re-usable components are then cleaned in an industrial
pressure washing machine.
This heavy duty cleaning process assures that all dirt,
grease, grime and residue from any previous failure will be
completely removed from all components. Thoroughly cleaned
components provide better visibility of any damage or excessive
wear during final component inspection and makes for a
contaminant-free final assembly.
Our inspection process addresses potential problem areas
that others may overlook, such as the main case, control valve,
pump, clutch packs, gears and shafts, as well as the ring and
pinion. Pumps are
remanufactured to OEM specifications or replaced with new if
replacement components meet or exceed original OEM
a transmission component not normally replaced is found to be
“marginal”, it will not be reused.
components are inspected, an internal report is forwarded to a
Joseph sales representative so that the customer can be
contacted with the overall inspection findings.
If there are no additional hard parts or repairs found to
be necessary after inspection (for example: damaged main case,
clutch drums, shafts, gears, control valves, etc.) then the
original quote remains unchanged.
If any additional hard parts or repairs are needed, they
will be quoted at this time.
If a component repair is an alternative to component
replacement, our full CNC machine shop capabilities may allow us
to provide repair options at a fraction of the cost of a new
note that the customer always has the option of providing these
parts if desired.
At this point, prior to
committing to the R&R, complete costs have been presented to
the customer. The
R&R process stops here until customer approval to proceed is
customer desires to proceed at this time, the R&R process will
continue. If a
customer decides not to continue the R&R process at this point,
their transmission will be shipped back to them.
Because our inspection process involves “demanufacturing”
the core down to individual components, the transmission will be
shipped back unassembled if remanufacturing will not proceed.
Please note that
the only obligation the customer has at this point is the
freight charges for their core being shipped in and shipped out.
customer approval is received, transmission re-assembly is
remanufactured transmission is fully hot run tested up to normal
OEM specified operating temperatures and speeds to verify that
the unit performs at proper operating pressure specifications
and that each unit is free of leaks and unusual noises.
Decibel readings are taken to insure low operating noise
levels are maintained.
pressure verification card is shipped with every transmission.
This card verifies main line pressure, converter in
pressure, clutch front and rear pressure, clutch high range and
low range pressure, 1st speed, 2nd speed,
3rd speed pressures as well as 4th, 5th
and 6th if applicable.
It will also note the inspection and proper operation of
any special engagement or disengagement mechanisms that may be
used to activate 4WD, etc.
