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.
