With the experience of our high performance motorsport engineering, accumulated since we started the company, we have for many years supported major OEMs with short run development or limited edition production programmes. This broadening and expansion of our core motorsport business into other advanced transmission technology developments is supported by our High Performance Automotive business unit within the organisation, which services the mainstream automotive industry with Hypercar and Dedicated Hybrid Transmissions (DHT). Modern vehicles require evermore innovative drivetrain solutions and our expertise at optimising their packaging for lightness, efficiency and power density in short timescales allows customers to create the most compact designs possible in increasingly complex powertrains.
Xtrac's High Performance Automotive capabilities have grown rapidly, especially in the electric vehicle, hybrid and hypercar sectors. Our supercar transverse layout 7-speed automated manual transmission (AMT) is an exemplary case study which underwent extensive testing and was launched with much praise for its lightness, advanced packaging and class leading noise vibration & harshness (NVH) reduction qualities for this important class of vehicle, which is often the first to adopt new technology.
Xtrac's hi-tech manufacturing facility, which is state of the art, allows products to be delivered to the highest standards of quality and within vastly reduced lead times. The production engineering team supports the manufacturing departments to ensure that Xtrac’s quality is always achieved. A stringent focus on key parameters including quality, efficiency, weight reduction, serviceability and reliability is maintained whilst keeping to project critical timing and cost requirements. These targets are at the very core of Xtrac’s approach towards product development, and we believe synonymous with the success that Xtrac and its customers demand.
