Several new products have re- cently been added to Rotomaster’s aftermarket lineup. New is a Volks- wagen 1. 9 L TDI (1999-2003) re- placement turbocharger assembly, cartridge and wastegate actuators as well as a Super GTP perform- ance turbocharger upgrade for Ford 7. 3 L Powerstroke engines (1995 to 2003). This new turbocharger fea- turesanupgradedcompressor wheel, designed to offer 30% more flow than the stock turbocharger and a 0.84 A/R turbine housing for quicker response, Rotomaster said. Rotomaster has also developed its own line of Komatsu KTR110 and KTR130replacementturbochargers.dp

customers. “The warranty training school updates our customers on the latest technology and empowers our distributors with the ability to make crit- ical warranty decisions,” said Wiebe. More than 150 employees comprise Rotomaster including technical and mechanical engineers and a full manu- facturing department. Internal research and development is augmented by the in-house turbo test stand. A new vibration sorting rig (VSR) that enables Rotomaster to balance any rotating assembly up to 250,000 rpm has been integrated into the assembly line. In the past, Rotomaster balanced turbine and compressor wheels but not complete turbocharg- ers. By balancing the turbocharger as a complete assembly, reliability, dura- bility and quality are improved, said Wiebe. “Today we have higher stan- dards for turbochargers,” Wiebe said. “They spin faster and last longer.” The VSR is complemented by three quality-control departments, as well as CNC machining centers and precision measuring equipment including the CMM, which is designed to ensure that product tolerances are maintained to within thousandths of an inch. Beyond complete turbochargers, Rotomaster offers repair kits. The kits include all necessary wear components needed to rebuild a turbocharger such as thrust collars, thrust bearings, journal bearings, piston rings, snap rings, replacement bolts and new O-rings.
