Always focused on excellence and innovation, CICSA provides its customers with the highest quality chains and components for bulk material handling solutions

Manufacturing high quality chain systems and components for industrial applications has always been a business imperative for our company since 1941. Constantly aiming to improve the quality and performance of our products, CICSA has established a very strict Quality Management System and constantly implemented various quality initiatives over the years.

Focus on excellence

We are proud to say that CICSA was the very first chain manufacturer in the world to become certified for ISO in 1990. Since then all CICSA products have been manufactured following the Quality Management System guidelines and certified according to the EN ISO 9001 standards.

The long tradition of CICSA Quality Assurance helps us to manufacture high quality products that guarantee maximum lifetime of the chain systems in the most severe applications (for example, machines operating with highly abrasive materials or performing high speed operations). All the components of the chain systems are developed and tested in our own factory and manufactured with very close production tolerance to guarantee smooth operation and uniformity of results. Continuous inspections of every product are conducted after each stage of the production process.

More precisely, proof tests cover 100% of our production, whereas breaking tests are made on each production batch, breaking several samples. CICSA can carry out destructive tests with special customised traction benches, attaining forces up to 2500 kN!

Modern technology and up-to-date facilities

To ensure high quality standards, the use of state-of-art technology allows CICSA to carry out advanced heat treatments with controlled atmospheres. Round steel chains for material handling solutions are deep case hardened in order to minimize wear and achieve maximum chain lifetime.

All CICSA products are manufactured on modern equipment, focusing on state-of-art technologies. Thanks to these special production systems, CICSA chains feature an exceptional resistance to wear and tear along with high breaking loads and excellent fatigue resistance.

Customer satisfaction is an integral part of the CICSA’s corporate philosophy, therefore our company is focused on providing customers with the best technical support team, as well as a great aftersales service.
