Eaton recently added its Advantage series clutch to its remanufactured product portfolio. Eaton remanufactures thousands of transmissions and clutches annually to maximize the reuse of materials, which keeps them out of landfills, saves energy, and reduces emissions and waste.
The clutches will be offered in seven part numbers to cover the majority of heavy-duty applications and will include both self-adjusted and manually adjusted models, according to Eaton.
“By adding our popular North American-made Advantage clutch to our line of remanufactured components, we are offering our customers a more sustainable product that reduces the amount of material going to landfills,” said Tim Bauer, VP of aftermarket at Eaton’s Mobility Group. “This is just another step in our commitment to the environment and offering our customers the products they demand for all vehicle life cycles.”
Eaton’s remanufacturing business recovers product cores from customers across North America and returns them to like-new performance. The intent of the remanufacturing business is to maximize component reuse while providing uncompromised performance. Eaton remanufactured Advantage clutches conform with the “Manufactured Again” certification process, which the MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers organization defines as “manufacturing that is sustainable by definition and responsible by design.”
“Remanufactured products maintain the same performance characteristics and provide customers of Eaton’s remanufactured product portfolio with a cost-effective solution while offering a sustainability advantage,” Bauer said. “In addition, remanufactured options carry market competitive warranties and provide superior performance for aging trucks on their late-life clutch replacement.”
