Design Capabilities & Design Optimization

Our entire product line is designed for customers who require quality and have specific needs. Our engineering and design capabilities are founded in our unique method of forming metal, plastic and filtration media into a critical component capable of withstanding the intense heat and stress of an automatic transmission.


Our engineers and designers have the expertise to devise the proper solutions for a standard grade media or high tech woven or non-woven material. Our teams rely on a broad range of design tools that allow our engineers to conduct structural analysis and flow analysis for every product. Our design capabilities include tools such as:

  • 3D solid modeling,
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
  • Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
  • Proprietary suction filter simulation software known as SuFis™

Our skilled die makers, designers and technicians provide a variety of prototype options including:

  • Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machined and production intent components.
  • Rapid prototypes
  • Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
  • Stereolithography (SLA)

These variations help our customers validate design, form, fit and function for new applications.  Our Filtran brand leads the industry in quality and performance and our Advantage by Filtran offers filtration solutions to customers who need a value line of automatic transmissions. When customers see the Filtran brand, they can be assured they are getting high-performing, quality parts.
