Product quality and reliability guaranteed

Well-established implementation in the production system of LEAN Manufacturing Philosophy and KAIZEN Methodology enables us to provide our customers with state‑of‑the‑art product quality and competitiveness, in addition to lead-time guarantee.

Furthermore, our gearboxes are manufactured in flexible production cells. A highly trained workforce accompanies the gearbox along the entire assembly process, which concludes with complete end-of-line tests and quality control routines. Consequently, CAF MiiRA can offer the market the highest standards of reliability in our products.

We have utilised our years of experience to develop a comprehensive and reliable supply chain that provides us with advanced components produced under our strict design and quality requirements. Our Supplier Quality Assurance team works daily hand-in-hand with our in-house Laboratory of Materials and Metrology department in order to assess the highest levels of quality in our supply chain.
