Considering the current scenario of limited resources and increased environmental regulations, frameworks to support the development of more sustainable production equipment are sought. Remanufacturing can bring benefits in terms of extending product lifetime by allowing multiple usage phases. Due to the diversity of mechanical, electrical and electronic components with different degree of replacement criteria of grinding machines, remanufacturing emerges as a relevant approach. The aim is to present a prototypical implementation of a remanufacturing oriented grinding machine, based on a storyboard which describes the main activities carried out during the machine lifecycle, including a comparative LCA of end of life scenarios.
