There really are no meaningful conversations about the topic of remanufacturing without diving into the subject of cores. Cores can be perceived in such different lights, and I believe many of these perceived notions about core are derived from the lack of understanding about why cores are important and how they should be understood. The need and uses of core create a unique business model for the remanufacturing industry and causes remanufacturers to analyze their business models for future success based on the supply-loops they will incur.
There are many different definitions and distinctions of core. The simplest way to describe core is a used part of any kind. Most of the time, the core is just a used part until it has been separated from its original-use form. The vague definition of what core really is explains why core has such a wide spectrum of worth and value. The same terminology is applied to a part that is pulled from an appliance only 1-hour into its duration as a part that has been in use for 3+ years. Therefore, it is important for remanufacturers to understand the worth and value of every core piece.
At CoreCentric Solutions, we understand the value and worth of each core we receive. Every core we received is logged and stored for future examination by our Engineering team. Once we figure out a process by which to repair the core part, we replace each and every failure in that part the same way and put those core parts into production. Each and every time the same noted failures are replaced 100% of the time, no matter if they are still working on the core part or not. This puts more value on CoreCentric’s core parts due to our advanced testing and remanufacturing processes. CoreCentric restores the value of core at the highest possible level, no matter where the core is in its life cycle.
