Counter Pressure Casting (CPC) is a further development of conventional low-pressure permanent mold casting. By this newly developed method, the filling of the mold and the solidification of the material can be realized under pressure because the pressures are independently adjustable in the furnace and the mold. In conjunction with a high cooling rate, we achieve excellent mechanical characteristics.
The KSM Castings Group is the world's largest manufacturer of suspension parts in the Counter Pressure Casting Process (CPC). We manufacture Counter Pressure Casting components that are exposed to very high static and dynamic loads.
Counter Pressure Casting? How das that work? Here you get an insight into our CPC process. more »
Besides its application as prototyping process, low pressure sand casting can be used to manufacture high-quality parts for small series up to 1.000 pieces per year.
The KSM Castings Group takes care of the adjustment of casting and machining concept. 80% of the parts are machined directly at site.
