"Remanufactured parts aid fleets and owner-operators in putting safe, reliable vehicles on the road, while creating value by extending their life cycle,” said Henry Foxx, Bendix director of remanufacturing. And with Bendix shoes, they are getting a product from an OE manufacturer with the capability and expertise to ensure that the reman component is capable of the performance levels expected in today's environment. In fact, Bendix offers the same warranty on our OE and genuine Bendix OE remanufactured products because we have that level of confidence.
Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake LLC (BSFB) is a joint venture between Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC and Dana Commercial Vehicle Products LLC.
Earl Brown, Benedix Product Manager, remanufactured brake shoes said "We remain focused on maximizing our brake shoes' safety and performance. Our customers want a reman brake shoe that provides full service life and is not susceptible to premature lining wear or rust jacking, and our shoes are engineered to deliver that. In addition, we'll continue to add new friction materials to our portfolio, which includes options ranging from economy and extreme-duty offerings to OE friction, and includes the industry's first RSD-certified aftermarket friction."
To reproduce original manufacturing methods, Bendix's coining process uses a 1,000-ton coining press to apply the full tonnage needed to return a shoe to its proper shape and OE specifications.
