Centro Sviluppo Materiali (CSM) is a prominent private enterprise within the greatest worldwide research and development (R&D) centers for materials and related production technologies. CSM also has a recognized role as a national and international reference point for collaborative research with universities, research agenices and the industry.

CSM’s activities cover the entire cycle of innovation from basic applied research (physical, chemical and mechanical properties, new alloys and innovative coatings) to design, engineering, processing (on pilot, demonstration and industrial scales), functional prototype production, process/system automation and control, components and structures safety assessment, environmental issues and materials recycling.

Research and development for the iron, steel and energy industries

Its core business is linked to the development and application of steels, light alloys (titanium, aluminum), Ni and Co-base super alloys as well as ceramics and cermets, special surface-engineered products, metal matrix and polymeric composites, intermetallics, hybrid products and organic coatings.

CSM has 300 highly skilled and trained employees to keep the company competitive and to support customer needs. It works within different and complementary industrial markets including iron and steel, oil and gas, power generation (including nuclear and renewable sources), environmental-related technologies, aerospace and defense, and mechanics and transportation.

Centro Sviluppo Materiali has a wide-spread presence in the most advanced industrial districts in Italy and has its headquarters in Rome.
CSM’s technology includes combustion, foundry advanced technologies, surface engineering and coating technologies, and high-temperature materials and components.
CSM works with aerospace, defence, mechanics and transportation. This is a laser welded aircraft combustion chamber.
CSM is active worldwide and heavily involved in international development projects such as this laser welding LRV in Los Angeles.
CSM plans to bridge the gap between basic and industrial applied research and accomplish a perfect balance for effective research and development action.
