Fineblanking and progressive stamping solutions
With its fineblanking technology, CSS can produce completely levelled parts with right-angled, clean-cut and smooth edges. This is particularly useful for components with wear surfaces and contact points.
The company uses its in-house tool design and tool build capabilities for our progressive stampings, ensuring a smooth launch for volume production in its power presses. CSS monitors and controls all critical aspects of a part’s journey from developing the concept to its production.
CNC machining of stamped parts
CSS can enhance precision blanked and stamped parts with critical features in a cost-effective manner. The company uses the latest computer numerical control (CNC) machining technology to modify component part designs for secondary CNC operations.
CSS develops springs that meet precise specifications within a variety of materials, sizes, and wire types.
The company uses round, square, braided and shaped wire ranging from .002in to .350in in diameter, working with a wide variety of materials for both low and high production runs.
CSS also operates and maintains a variety of coilers, spring grinding equipment, wireforming and automatic looping machinery to bring spring designs to life.
Assemblies and precision parts
CSS can combine an assortment of precision components, most of which are produced at its own facilities, into assemblies or subassemblies by applying processes such as trimming, grinding, insertion, staking, welding and pressing.
