GETRAG FORD TRANSMISSIONS GmbH

Prototyping & Testing

The prototype center offers manufacturing and assembly of prototype components and transmissions as well as small batch series production of manual, hybrid and eDrive transmissions.
The expertise of the testing center is the independant verification of manual, hybrid & eDrive compents, transmissions as well as complete powertrains.

Prototype Center

The prototype center of GETRAG FORD Transmissions is capable to deliver vehicle transmissions from single, fast prototypes up to low volume series production. The range of prototype production includes transmissions for manual supersport cars up to high volt edrive transmissions within certificated automotive quality standards. Full flexible high dynamic test capacity for all kind of transmsissions including high volt and component testing supports the prototype verification. A well educated team of engineers and mechanics will support all types of requests.
