Building a Better Torque Converter

Transtar's 5-Point Remanufacturing Process

All RECON Certified Torque Converters are built to the highest quality standards in the industry and warranted to be free from manufacturing defects in material and workmanship for a period of 4 years or 100,000 miles from the date of purchase, whichever occurs first. Every converter goes through the following five-step process to ensure the highest level of quality: 

TC_Quality1.jpg1)  Media Blast - Only the highest quality core is permitted and all components are cleaned thoroughly prior to assembly.
  • Components disassembled for cleaning and inspection.
  • State of the art cleaning equipment used to remove the smallest particles and the varnish that can accumulate on parts.
  • OE type sediment testing of completed products as well as sub-components.

2) CNC Lathes - Exact matching of every component.  The most consistent quality in the industry.
  • Components disassembled, qualified, repaired, or replaced.
  • Scheduled and random audits ensure items are meeting specifications.
  • Overlapping stages of quality checks ensure quality components.TC_Quality2.jpg

3) Internal Parts - Critical parts are always replaced and upgraded. 
  • Extensive research conducted into meeting and exceeding OEM specs.
  • Detailed training and testing support builders and processes.
  • Multiple manual and digital quality checks ensure correct assembly and dimensions are met every time.

4) OE Digital Weld- OEM factory welding machines and technology are used to ensure a true converter with no leaks or inner contamination.  Welding slag is reduced by 10x through the use of digital welding equipment.  

5) Optical Testing & Final Inspection- Computerized certification and serialization.  
  • 100% functional testing for leaks, run out, end play and balance.  Custom built QA machines require human and machine approval for each converter to pass with no leaks. 
  • TC_Quality3.jpgStatic dimensions and functional specifications are measured on the Proud System, the digital backbone of the Quality Control System. The details are recorded with a unique QR code for each converter.
  • End of Line visual inspections are conducted on each converter to ensure that the customer’s expectations are met when they open the box.
  • Additional random audits are done to further verify the quality of the product that you receive.
