Aftermarket Spare parts are spare parts manufactured by a company other than the original manufacturer of your construction or agricultural machinery. The quality of the Aftermarket spare part is usually the same as the original spare parts.
Aftermarket parts are also known as:
OEM Spare Parts
The original spare parts are in the packaging of the machine manufacturer (CAT, JCB, KOMATSU, VOLVO, NEW HOLLAND, CASE, etc.). Usually OEM spare parts are manufactured in the same factories, but the brand of the machine is not placed, because in many cases, the manufacturer of “original” spare parts, ie. OEM, produces the same spare part for different brands of construction and agricultural machinery.
OEM Parts of these categories are often cheaper than spare parts included in the machine manufacturer’s brand packaging.
Where are aftermarket spare parts for construction machinery produced?
Many of the spare parts used in many brands of machines are manufactured by different manufacturers. Many construction and agricultural machines use Perkins, Cummins, Deutz, Kubota engines, which are produced in various factories around the world, according to the type of machine in which the engine is placed (Tractor, Excavator, Bulldozer, etc.), ie. this basic component, like the engine, is not manufactured by the brand of the machine.
In construction machinery, the other main component is the hydraulic system, hydraulic pumps and distributors. The main manufacturers of hydraulic components for installation in construction machinery are: Parker, Casappa, Kayaba, Kawasaki and others, which again are not manufactured by the machine manufacturer.
Bridges and differentials – these main manufacturers are ZF and Carraro.
Chassis spare parts in tracked machines (tracked excavators, bulldozers, etc.) are mainly produced by the largest manufacturer Berco. Berco is the largest European manufacturer of chassis, chains, rail, sprocket, sloth, running rollers and more.
Most of the chain machines are offered by the manufacturer with these brands of components.
Aftermarket spare parts are produced on a single production line. as the “original” spare parts go through several added steps. Branding of the part, stamping with the manufacturer’s logo “KOMATSU” for example, packaging and labeling in the manufacturer’s packaging and the same spare part becomes more expensive for the consumer and further “inflated” by numerous intermediaries then to the end user.
