Automatic transmission production - genuine expertise!
This expertise is rooted in a multitude of professions and skills within the Production sector: machinists, assemblers, welders, moulders, workshop technicians, heat treatment operators. The manufacturing of our products integrates 4 major processes organised around the 3PS production system:
- Aluminum high pressure die casting: The production operators perform the machining and finishing of the majority of the injected parts as well as the complete production of the main casing of the transmissions.
- Machining: The machining experts shape the as-cast parts to the defined shapes and dimensions via a succession of machining operations.
- Heat treatment: The production operators perform the heat treatment of certain machined parts in order to improve their strength.
- Assembly: The assemblers assemble the different machined and purchased parts in order to deliver a tested transmission, ready to be assembled on our clients' vehicles.
All the stages are controlled by the production teams assisted by the support functions.
