Safran Transmission Systems - The power transmission specialist

As the world's leading supplier of power transmissions, Safran Transmission Systems has an experience in the design of high-performance mechanical systems back to the company’s founding in 1904.

Safran Aircraft Engines and Mecachrome signed on April 14th, 2014 the procurement contract for titanium-aluminide (TiAl) blades on the low-pressure turbine of the CFM International  LEAP engine. The contract was signed at a ceremony attended by Stéphane Le Foll, French Minister for Agriculture, Agrifoods and Forestry, government spokesman and a member of the French parliament representing the Sarthe region.

Safran Transmission Systems designs, produces and supports the transmissions that provide the mechanical energy needed for aircraft and their engines. Power transmissions by Safran Transmission Systems outfit all types of aircraft, from business and regional aircraft to military transports, and from mainline commercial jets to fighters and helicopters. To date, it has delivered over 30,000 power transmissions, logging more than 700 million flight-hours.

The company's proven expertise has led to its selection on many of today's leading aircraft programs. Safran Transmission Systems provides power transmissions for the entire range of CFM56* engines, for all three versions of its successor, the LEAP*, for the engine powering the Airbus A350 XWB, and for the engines on the Gulfstream G650, the Airbus Helicopters H175 and the Rafale's M88. Its clientele includes the engine-makers Safran Aircraft Engines, CFM International and Rolls-Royce, and the plane-makers Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Dassault Aviation. Hispano-Suiza offers a full range of support services, from one-time repairs and spare parts to total fleet support and "by the hour" packages.
