A Trusted Transmission Parts Supplier

Everyone wants a higher performance vehicle with better fuel economy—areas where the transmission plays a vital role. It means more complex components finished to ever tighter tolerances so that you can be confident it will run as efficiently as possible for as long as possible.

Systrand has the tools and talent to meet those challenges and exceed your expectations.

We currently produce world-class transmission components via gear grinding, polish grinding, gear hobbing, gear shaping, helical broaching, honing, ID/OD grinding, load-monitored pressing, and hard turning. Our manufacturing processes and proprietary tooling have proven capable of meeting the tightest of tolerances. Given our turning, cylindrical grinding, polishing and gear expertise, we’re able to manufacture the most demanding shaft designs at production volumes. We have produced over 8 million differential cases for customers around the world. Large envelope milling equipment, along with the flexibility of palletized part handling, allow us to be competitive in a variety of transmission related housings. Flexibility within our pallet pool system results in our ability to be competitive no matter what the volume or variant.

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.

A Well Earned Reputation for Transmission Parts

Since 1982, Systrand has specialized in precision machining. Over that time, high-performance gears and transmission parts have become increasingly important 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. Today, no other supplier can so reliably manufacture high-performance, high-precision transmission components.

Systrand was among the first U.S. manufacturers to supply high-precision hybrid and electric gears. We now have millions of hybrid and electric vehicle components in the field, while still producing millions of automotive gears, shafts, housings, and differential cases annually.

More importantly, we have the tools and processes in place to ensure that our transmission parts consistently perform to ever higher standards. Those processes include an advanced 100% noise signature analysis on all NVH 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.
