Engine Control Unit (ECU)

Exposed to extreme conditions, ECUs in tractors and other agricultural vehicles experience a high failure rate. In addition to this, the relatively low volume production rates are keeping the average price tag at a high level. Thereby, alternative solutions like remanufacturing are an interesting option.

Alec GmbH provides customised remanufacturing solutions. Over the past decades, we have refined our in-house development, incorporating our knowledge into advanced supporting equipment like simulation test platforms. By reverse engineering thousands of automotive signals (e.g. CAN), a wide range of exchange parts and repair solutions has been launched.

We supply innovative concepts, tailored to individual customer preferences. This also includes finding alternatives for obsolete parts. The ever-increasing lifespan of agricultural vehicles compels us to search for out-of-the-box options. Alternative semiconductors can be found, but rarely as a ‘direct fit’. We are able to ensure a guaranteed 25-year product availability plan for almost every ECU on the market, creating a sustainable lifecycle solution.

Highly automated methods are used in order to achieve a low cost high quality remanufacturing process:

  • Components are disassembled by using advanced automatic tools
  • Repetitive movements are carried out by robot arms
  • The cleaning procedure can be performed with automated wet blasting, automated dry ice blasting or even robotised ultrasonic cleaning
  • The component can be opened by CNC, its casting compound can be chemically or mechanically removed and (parts of) the housing can be renewed
  • All components and parts are transported by Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs)
  • More complex and specialist operations require our ultrasonic wire bonding machines, BGA placement equipment, various test and simulation platforms and fully automated glue dispensing robots

Our methods have been developed with a clear goal in mind: to achieve the highest possible efficiency. This results in a short turnaround time with a high reliability.

The entire process is carried out according to ISO9001 and ISO14001 in an ESD protected environment (IATF16949 to be expected).
