Automotive Remanufacturing Case Study

Scintam were able to successfully demonstrate our technology during a case study for a major European automotive remanufacturing client. Scintam was able to remove hardened dowel pins in blind holes from cast automotive components. This demonstration enables Scintam to showcase how our technology could be used to reduce scrap, improving sustainability, and reducing costs in the automotive sector.

These components could not be removed using conventional methods, as the processing proved to be time consuming, costly and had high risk of damaging parts. The benefits of Scintam’s technology mean that these pins could be easily removed without thermal cycling, chemicals, or mechanical

About Scintam Engineering

Scintam develops cutting-edge repair, maintenance and remanufacturing tooling for a range of engineering sectors. Our pioneering technology provides environment and sustainability benefits to our customers by enabling repair instead of replacement - our aim is to maximise the number of components that are remanufactured, preventing the need for highly energy-intensive new manufacture. We design tools for aerospace MRO, and the energy and remanufacturing sectors.

Founded in March 2021, Scintam is supported by Innovate UK funding to advance our research and development capability, driving growth in the industry through the development of new technologies.
