  1. BE3 - Rottler SG80ADiesel engine remanufacturing in Australia is fast becoming the "better option" to buying new. Engine remanufacturing is the process of rebuilding an engine to the specifications of the original manufactured unit using a combination of reused, reconditioned and new engine parts. Thereby bringing the product back to like-new condition.

    Diesel engine remanufacturing in Australia is paramount to industries who are trying to comply with environmental standards such as "re-use", "recover" and "re-cycle", three fundamental environmental strategies that form part of every organisations' Environmental Management Policy. Besides, engine remanufacturing saves companies millions of dollars in Australia each and every year. 

    United States

    In 1997 it was reported that remanufacturing firm sales exceeded 50 billion dollars in the US alone. These figures have grown exponentially since then due to massive demand and output from various industries including mining, oil and gas and construction to name a few. 

    The remanufacturing option is now a first choice consideration in the United States.

    Australia 

    According to Bells Caterpillar and Cummins Engines, a global and Australia-wide engine remanufacturer, the situation is fast becoming similar in Australia where there is a growing need to provide high quality engine remanufacturing services for these industries. 

    One of the stumbling blocks that companies experience when trying to make a decision to remanufacture their engines is their own management culture. For years, companies' asset and plant managers would follow their "replace with new" policy and old habits die hard. According to Bells Caterpillar and Cummins Engines "old expensive purchasing habits are now expensive mistakes", "remanufacturing a perfectly good engine makes excellent financial and environmental sense which will improve the bottom line for any organisation regardless of size". 

    Quality

    When it comes to quality in engine remanufacturing we must take a look at two important components of the remanufacturing process, that of machining and replacement parts.

    Machining

    Bells Caterpillar and Cummins Engines Remanufacturers have earned a fantastic reputation over 40 years for their highest quality engineering practices and processes. This is evident in their approach to flawless engine machining practices and services achieved by their multi-million dollar facilities, state of the art technology, equipment and impeccable workforce of Engineering Staff. 

    Bell's outstanding engine remanufacturing services include:

    • Crankshaft grinding
    • Con rod reconditioning and pin boring
    • Engine balancing - pistons, rods and crankshaft
    • Cylinder head pressure testing
    • Cylinder head reconditioning
    • Line boring and honing blocks
    • Engine metal spraying

    Parts

    When it comes to reconditioning parts for re-use, Bells ensure that these parts are reconditioned in line with original engine manufacturer specifications and are re-tested prior to reinstallation. 

    For new engine parts Bells certainly have decades of experience when it comes to choosing the "right part" for the reman engine. This includes choosing from either original manufacturer's parts or even higher quality aftermarket parts that have been tried and tested over the years. Parts from IPD Engine Parts and Jereh Tractor Parts are considered alongside CAT and Cummins engine parts on a daily basis and Bells are approved distributors for these parts in both Australia and globally.

  3. Worldwide, there is a growing demand from Mining companies who require their plant and fleets to be 'efficiently' maintained for optimum output and maximum profit. 

    Mining Engine RemanufacturingRather than replacing units like the popular Caterpillar® and Cummins® engines in mining plant and fleets, remanufacturing is now proven to be the very best solution. Rather than wasteful engine replacement practices, Mining companies are now starting to choose "remanufacturing" over "purchasing new". This is no surprise given that engine remanufacturing leads to massive financial savings and is a completely environmentally sensible way to go about business. "Due to global market trends it makes much more sense to remanufacture current engine stocks" says Ron Bell, CEO at Bells Caterpillar and Cummins Engine Remanufacturers. Ron, an Engine Remanufacturing Engineer states "why throw away a perfectly good engine that has reached its allocated hours, surely, in accordance with sound Environmental management practices under ISO 14001, the best option for all Mining Operators is to remanufacture these engines to OEM standards for a "second life"". "Engine remanufacturing will save most Mining organisations, and their Contractors, hundreds of thousands of dollars, even millions, each and every year" says Ron.

    Ron Bell explains that remanufacturing CAT® and Cummins® engines saves miners so much as opposed to purchasing new units. The end result being a super high-quality remanufactured engine to Manufacturer's OEM specifications and quality parts for a fraction of the price of buying new engines. "These remanufactured engines are as good as new" says Ron.

  9. Andrew Hastie MP with Ron Bell from Bells EnginesOn Tuesday 6th March 2018 Andrew Hastie MP took the trouble of personally taking the time to visit Bells Engines and our Bells Caterpillar and Cummins Engines division. 

    The purpose of Mr Hasties's visit was to explore the expansion of Bells in the Peel Region. 

    Ron Bell, Managing Director, gave the Member of Canning and his colleagues a grand tour of the premises including workshops, engines and parts storage facilities, dyno units and offices. Mr Hastie was very interested in how the business has captured a global market with interest from Asia, Europe, Africa, Russia, South America, the Middle East and the United States. 

    In a Facebook Post regarding the 2 hour tour and meeting, Mr Hastie said "Ron Bell built Bells Engines Pty Ltd from the ground up. Over the past 30+ years he's turned it into a big operation with a global market. He wants to expand and stay local, but at the moment it's cheaper for him to move out of the Peel region. I'm backing Ron over the bureaucrats who are stifling local business."

    Ron Bell said "Andrew is a down-to-earth gentleman and a man of his word. It was great for us to meet him and we are so grateful for his time and help."
