How We Refurbish Precor Elliptical Machines
Global Fitness is the Worldâ€™s largest wholesaler of pre-owned, refurbished and remanufactured fitness equipment.
Each year we acquire thousands of pre-owned machines from facilities nationwide and worldwide, returning them to our one-hundred and fifty thousand square foot facility in Los Angeles, California. It is here that they undergo our unique remanufacturing process.
We initiate this sophisticated 65 point process, by disassembling the Elliptical Crosstrainers down to the bare frames, at which point we discard of the wear and tear parts which are later recycled. All of the frames; core components; and electronics are retained and dispatched to our lab. The elliptical machine frames are sent to our powder coating facility, where the original paint is removed in a 1700 degree oven. The final paint removal process is completed in a high-volume silica sand blast room, where the frames are brought back to their raw steel form. These metal frames and parts then undergo the same powder coating paint process that the equipment manufacturers perform, utilizing original color paint, which is applied as a powder that affixes to the metal through an electric charge. The new paint is then sealed and cured in a second 1700 degree oven for 30 minutesâ€¦and when it comes out, it glistens with a brand new perfect texture and shine, just like new!
The frames and metals parts are returned to our remanufacturing bays and the rebuilding process beginsâ€¦ New parts including; rebuilt rear assemblies; drive belts; wheels; ramp systems; decals; stickers and other hardware is installed and affixed. We test and repair ALL electronics professionally in our electronics lab, as well as rebuild all elevation motor, rear assemblies; generators, alternators and critical core parts. All of these rebuilt parts ensure perfect durability and longevity. We also update the computer firm-ware with the latest manufacturer releases, and are configured to suit the country and requirements to which the product is destined. These completed ellipticals are then packaged using recycled professional packaging materials and shipped to clients throughout the US, as-well as distributors in one of 67 countries where our products are represented. They are truly ready to be replaced onto gym floors and to perform and function just like new!
We take pride in each and every machine that leaves our production facility, and our 48 point Quality Control process is just as extensive.
