A diamond mine in Northern Canada was in need of a remanufacturing partner that could work with a short window of economic transportation time. The mine is accessible through the world’s largest heavy haul ice road for eight to ten weeks, beginning in late January. This makes the logistics of receiving mine challenging.

Our customer prefers component delivery during winter to avoid costly air freight expenses. H-E Parts has the ability to receive components, tear down, quote, and repair to like new condition in the appropriate window to meet the ice road opening.  Additionally, the customer works with our production team on teardowns and subsequent remanufacturing to get finished products built to exact specifications at a competitive price.

  • In-House Machining to ensure performance and life extension for components
  • Major components NDT tested by certified technicians
  • Cylinder block work includes inspection of 50 critical areas, machining and optional spray welding to restore deck height
  • Cylinder Block machining restores to specification the block deck surfaces, liner bores, and bearing bores
  • Crankshaft is balanced using the latest processes and customized equipment
  • Match Balanced reciprocating assemblies (Rod, Piston and Pin)
  • Restoration of original lift and duration on camshafts
