Casting Process

Innovative Engineering

Our experienced sales and engineering departments utilizing state of the art computer technology in design and drafting and engineering programs (such as AutoCAD / Solid Works, FEA, Solid Modeling, Rapid Prototyping and Solidification analysis) work closely with the end user to determine exactly what is required in order to supply an innovative engineered custom solution. CSP uses SolidWorks 3D modeling software which allows us to visualize our products before they are built, target any potential problems, and relay accurate information to our foundries and machine shops.

Quality

CSP as a certified ISO 9001 company, supplies products to our customers with high levels of safety, reliability, maintainability while minimizing downtime and products that can withstand the harshest wear environments. Our products meet or exceed the highest industry standards including ISO 9000, ASTM, AISI, DIN, JIS, SAE or proprietary standards, and are subject to stringent Quality Assurance programs to ensure consistent quality.

Inspection and Testing

Our commitment to meeting and exceeding our customer’s expectations with excellence in supplying reliable quality custom cast, forged and fabricated metal products includes conducting full scale industrial testing of our designs and systems, using SolidWorks Simulation (Finite Element Analysis) software to analyze how our products will react in real-world situations. We also undertake the following tests: Liquid Penetrant, Magnetic Particle (wet and dry), Ultrasonic, Radiographic, Mechanical Properties and Chemical Analysis.

Optimization

CSP specializes in optimizing current designs to better meet the needs of our customers. We are able to extend the lifetime of our products, reduce cost, and provide better performance while requiring less maintenance and down time. Some of the ways we achieve these goals are by reducing weight, choosing better-suited materials, optimizing designs, and using our knowledge of in-field usage to find better ways of doing things.

Product Development

CSP is committed to meeting and exceeding our customer’s expectations with excellence in supplying reliable quality custom cast, forged and fabricated metal wear, replacement and abrasion and heat resistant products and value pleasing service. We continually invest in research and development to take full advantage of industry advancements in order to supply market leading and innovative new products.

Health & Safety

The health and safety of our employees is of primary concern. Our company is committed to ensuring practical and effective procedures are in place to achieve the highest standard in occupational health and safety. CSP provides active leadership and extend their complete support in the development and maintenance of these procedures. It is the policy of this company to maintain all tools, equipment, and vehicles in a condition that maximizes the safety of all personnel.
