Instrument Cluster

The instrument cluster is definitely a vital part of agricultural vehicles like tractors. This complex component has to cope with extreme conditions on a daily basis, resulting in various malfunctions and a high failure rate. Displays, pointer motors, processors and even simple soldering connections can be the source of many problems. These defects often occur simultaneously, making it hard to pinpoint the initial source of the failure.

Alec GmbH has many years of experience in developing complete remanufacturing solutions. We always start with a thorough investigation with a substantial amount of defective instrument clusters in order to map all possible weaknesses. The next step involves independently redeveloping the weak components, such as pointer motors and LCD displays. Alternative options with similar components will be used if this increases the lifespan of the product. This creates a sustainable lifecycle solution. We are able to use advanced simulation platforms with which (End-of-Life) testing of every single component within the instrument cluster is possible. The platform also uses a visual quality control system, performed by a high-resolution camera. Dust-free rooms are reserved for clean assembly of the instrument clusters.

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).
