Northern Industrial Manufacturing is one of the world’s foremost manufacturers of premium made-in-USA transmission parts. We are proud suppliers to the automotive OE, aftermarket and heavy-duty industries, and honored recipients of the GM Supplier Quality Excellence Award every year since 2013.
Our vertically integrated parts manufacturing facility, and state-of-the-art engineering, research and design operations, are located in the Metro Detroit area – the epicenter of the North American automotive manufacturing industry. We can supply parts for any type of automatic, manual or off-highway transmission, including industrial and commercial applications.
By embracing today’s most advanced and innovative parts manufacturing processes we offer greater efficiency and higher machining productivity – enabling us to offer the highest quality transmission parts at the lowest costs, with the most rapid turnaround times.
In the heavy duty vehicle industry, an off-highway transmission is an important component used in heavy duty vehicles. The off-highway transmission consists of several gears rotated by a few shafts all held together in casing. The off-highway transmission provides enough power to maintain high performance and low costs of operating heavy duty vehicles. The off-highway transmission has heavy duty applications for the construction industry within construction vehicles with front-end loaders, or dump trucks. The off-highway transmission also has heavy duty applications for the agricultural industry within agriculture vehicles like tractors, combine harvesters, and other farm implements.
Because the off-highway transmission utilizes gears and shafts, it will also need to use some high quality precision metal shims as well. These precision shims will ensure that the gears remain in place and fully enmeshed. When the precision shims keep the gears from sliding, it’ll reduce the risk of slippage, and even mechanical failure. In other words, precision shims maintain the high quality performance of the off-highway transmission.
The importance of off-highway transmissions are that they increase performance and decrease costs of operating heavy duty vehicles such as agricultural vehicles like tractors, combine harvesters, and other farm implements. The importance of precision shims are that they lock the gears inside the off-highway transmission in place.
With ethics and integrity at our core, we are the automotive industry’s go to manufacturer and global supplier of precision automatic transmission parts, thrust washers and spacers, selective shims, and other metal stamping and grinding solutions. And our ability to often offer delivery windows below 2 weeks far exceeds industry averages – for the highest quality automotive parts, at the lowest costs, with the shortest lead times.
While our competitors traditionally have 20 week lead times, in many cases we are able to offer delivery windows below 2 weeks. With a goal of being the automotive industry’s “go to” source for high quality transmission parts manufacturing, we would love to provide you a competitive quote.
