CSA has developed a testing procedure both for hydraulics & the mechanical systems of the steering for heavy vehicles. This procedure is used & documented for every vehicle that is brought to CSA for testing or fault rectification.
Pressure & Flow Testing is an integral part of diagnostics of steering condition in heavy vehicles.
Specialist equipment that is used by CSA helps enable us to diagnose steering issues in a timely & efficient way that serves the customer.
This electronic equipment both records & downloads graphs for systems pressure settings, flow rates & temperatures. All tests are documented & recorded to a computer.
Accident damage inspection
All accident repair or insurance inspection are both tested & inspected to manufacturers specifications.
All steering gears repaired are crack tested & bench tested before returning to service, with all parts being replaced only with genuine TRW components.
Steering Design & Fault Correction
CSA has over 30 years of experience in steering system design and fault correction. We have assisted both OEMs and small manufacturers with full system configurations, design changes and upgrades of steering systems and suspension design.
In the design of components CSA utilises an in house CAD program in 3D drawing and stress analysis.
CSA is able to supply and support full steering systems from the steering wheel down to the front axle, including all components in between.
