Manufacturing and Supplying Shafts, Gears, and Assemblies for Axles
The component parts can make all the difference. High-precision axle components maximize vehicle performance across all parts and systems. But that excellence doesn’t come easy, and isn’t one-size-fits-all. Each axle component needs to be optimized for durability, reduced system cost, increased energy efficiency, decreased emissions, and improved performance—not to mention minimizing noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH).
There are many approaches, each with an impact on performance. Systrand is here to help you choose the right ones. We have produced millions of hubs, flanges, differential cases, carrier housings, and other axle components—to the tightest tolerances, using proprietary tooling and equipment designs that we’ve been improving continuously over four decades in the industry. Our customers benefit from our expertise in multiple processes for design assist, machinability, heat treatment, and assembly every day.
Axle Components Designed for Manufacturability
Axle designers are not always axle manufacturers—and shouldn’t have to be. You set the specification. We will work with you to make it a reality.
Systrand has 40+ years of precision machining, and more than a decade of high-volume, high-precision gears manufacturing experience. We’ve been supplying the auto industry with high-volume, high-precision gears since 2011, which makes us uniquely suited to offer design collaboration for increased manufacturability to every customer.
Our production and engineering teams benefit from the latest CAD/CAM software, 3D modeling, CNC and manual machines, and Zeiss coordinate-measuring machines. Our internal tool room department can expedite any part-specific machining work we need to compress timing. In production, we can include an advanced 100% noise signature analysis on critical components, capable of isolating ghost order noise and other extremely subtle sources of unwanted vibration.
Our Commitment to Quality
“Quality” isn’t just something for the Quality Department to worry about. It’s a commitment threaded through every office and workstation. At Systrand, we are a tier 1 supplier with IATF 16949 and ISO 14001 certifications. Our quality systems, processes, and entire organization are committed to ensuring quality for our customers.
Over four decades, we’ve invested and reinvested in the tools and talent that are vital to our customers’ success. That includes a world class operating system of monitored performance and a structured approach to problem solving proven to ensure reliable manufacturing.
These are metrics/results driven systems, built on Lean Manufacturing principles and Six Sigma methodology, and take into account activity-based costing and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) while maintaining low- to zero PPM. Those systems form a foundation from which we can pursue continuous improvements and cost savings for our customers.
