The first thing we need to ask ourselves is “What Exactly Makes a CP-Carrillo Aluminum Rod?” To answer this question, we need to remember that the “CP-Carrillo” name not only designates a certain type of connecting rod but also a certain process and how we actually get there. So, to get started, let’s break down their process into three important categories: Manufacturing, Engineering and Development.
Each Aluminum connecting rod is manufactured from a forging, enabling proper grain flow and removal of any surface inclusions or conversions that usually accompanies the forging process. Each lot of forgings is independently inspected and certified. By insuring proper grain flow, the strength and durability of each CP-Carrillo Aluminum rod becomes more consistent and reliable from the first point of manufacturing all the way to the extreme uses in the racing world.
CP-Carrillo has been building its image for many years and takes great pride in every rod that ships out the door. Because of this, each rod is thoroughly designed using a 3D software package, R&D programs and FEA Modeling.
Many aspects go into designing a successful Aluminum connecting rod. In this case, it’s all the little things that add up and allow CP-Carrillo to stand alone:
Going back to our manufacturing process, this is why it is important that we are able to hold extreme tolerances and finish with an all inclusive quality control process, which is the best in the industry. CP-Carrillo ISO 9001:2008 certificated in recognition of its standardized best practice production techniques.
As time goes on, the industry changes direction as well as your needs. We continue to develop new and exciting ways to meet your growing expectations. With our race team involvement and special projects, we are able to explore new ideas which directly affect the way your current and future connecting rods are designed. We continue to evolve our processes so we can continue to offer you the most advanced connecting rod on the market.
