New Book by Fernand Weiland

The impact of digitisation, automation, robotization and electric vehicles on the fast-changing world of remanufacturing is the topic of Fernand Weiland’s new book, ‘To Elevate Automotive Remanufacturing by Innovation and Automation’.
A passionate ambassador for remanufacturing for many years and a former chair of APRA Europe, Weiland analyzes the potential for growth in the remanufacturing market via new technologies.

Explore these new ways of working as Weiland and his fellow expert co-authors from across the industry, Gerhard Gerke, Sebastian Groß, Thomas Bartscherer, Thijs Jasink, Nigel Ramsden, Francesco Maltoni and Mike Hague-Morgan, go beyond the general aspects of remanufacturing covered in Fernand’s last book, ‘Make-New-Again’. Find out how the revolution in traditional reman processes is being driven by innovation and automation.
