At Hewland, we have a dedicated team of designers and production engineers (the Advanced Engineering and Design Group). Each of these individuals is a specialist in their field of motorsport transmission design with extensive experience at the very highest levels of motorsport.
We use Solid Designer, a CAD package that is flexible enough to accept design data from whatever programmes our clients choose to use. Our approach is client-tailored, with an Account Manager assigned to each client, working in close co-operation with a dedicated Senior Design Engineer, supported by field specialists in semi-auto, casing and gear profile design. This ensures that our clients receive an optimised solution in close partnership with the customer.
This client-driven philosophy has been at the heart of Hewland Engineering since the late 1950’s; this long history has been made possible by the continuous investment in technology, processes and people.
To support our design advances, each year we make significant investments in the latest machinery, ensuring our customers benefit from the most advanced motorsport transmission production facilities in the world.
These include state of the art Turning, Milling, Gear Cutting, Heat Treatment and Grinding, including Gear Grinding. In addition to hard finishing using grinding we are also experts in Hard Milling and Turning.
In short, our capabilities today are second to none, and it is our ambition and intention to remain the market leader in motorsport transmissions for many more years to come.
