Global Parts Network Releases New CoMan Centers Video

Video provides overview of multi-step process to remanufacture brake shoes for commercial vehicles.

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – A new video on the advanced system used to remanufacture brake shoes for commercial vehicles is now available from Global Parts Network’s CoMan Centers. CoMan Centers are the brake manufacturing operations of Global Parts Network (GPN), an independent, wholly owned subsidiary of VIPAR Heavy Duty. These high-quality brake shoes are available exclusively through the VIPAR Heavy Duty network of distributors.
 
The video takes viewers inside Global Parts Network’s state-of-the-art facilities in South Bend, Ind., and Salt Lake City, Utah, to illustrate the 15-step process they follow to inspect, clean, de-line, coin, coat, cure and reline brake shoes.
 
Among the features at the CoMan Centers is a 1,000-ton coining press, which the company says is one of the largest in the industry and specifically designed to correct any deformations and return brake shoes to OE specifications. The video also highlights the innovative coating system used in the CoMan Centers that dip-coats brake shoes at twice the industry thickness, according to GPN, for improved adhesion and superior protection against anti-icing chemicals to lessen the impact of flash rusting and rust jacking. The coating system includes a four-step drying system using a heated convection chamber. By following this disciplined process, CoMan Centers is able to extend the lifecycle of a brake shoe and reduce waste, GPN says.
 
"Producing a superior brake shoe is the No. 1 commitment at our CoMan Centers," said Gene Damron, general manager, Global Parts Network. "The video shows how we go beyond the industry norm by paying attention to every detail to achieve the highest quality products. We demonstrate our ability to help fleets stretch their dollars by producing a superior brake shoe that lasts longer."
