Driveline and Powertrain Components Supplier
In that time we’ve invested in proprietary tooling and equipment designs developed with our years of experience and benefiting from our core commitment to continuous improvement. The result is a manufacturing process that has proven capable of meeting the tightest of tolerances and timelines.
Engineers and driveline component designers are not parts manufacturers—and shouldn’t have to be. A parts manufacturer knows that, in the real world, a gear or shaft can match the specification well within threshold tolerance and still contribute to noise, vibration, or other issues.
Your team knows how to design a solution. At Systrand, we know how to take that design and find ways to improve not just its performance, but its manufacturability. This collaborative process can reduce direct costs, simplify assembly, improve durability, and help eliminate issues before they become problems.
Reliably Supplying Quieter Driveline Systems
Since 1982, Systrand has specialized in precision machining. In that time a quieter, higher-performance driveline has become vital to the automotive industry—and to us. For the last decade we’ve lived and breathed the NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) standards and requirements. We were among the first U.S. manufacturers to supply high-precision hybrid and electric gears. Today, we have millions of hybrid and electric vehicle driveline components in the field. More importantly, we have the tools and processes in place to ensure that our parts perform to ever higher standards.
Our production and design teams benefit from the latest CAD/CAM software; 3D modeling; modern, flexible, and scalable CNC-based and manual machines; and performance-accelerating Zeiss coordinate-measuring machines (CMMs). Our internal tool room department can expedite any part-specific machining work we need to compress timing. In our metrics and results driven production environment 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.
