The technology park in the CZ-AUTO automotive production has been extended by a new machine. It is a Mafac Java washer, a water-based flushing degreasing unit with vacuum drying.
Our company offers various options of surface treatment, which we are able to apply to the manufactured parts. These primarily include blackening and phosphating of steel, phosphating of aluminium and aluminium alloys, hard chrome plating, chemical (electroless) nickel plating of steel, electrolytic copper plating and tin plating, chemical oxidation of magnesium alloys, painting, polishing, sanding. In cooperation, we also offer anodizing of aluminium and aluminium alloys and cadmium plating.
We provide industrial cleaning and degreasing of manufactured parts. Industrial washing of parts ensures a clean assembly and is performed using flood chamber washers and modified alcohol.
Hardening, carburising, carbonitriding, nitriding, annealing, quenching and tempering. These are the types of heat treatment we are able to provide at our facility. Through this treatment, we are able to achieve the desired mechanical and technological properties of materials.
We are able to offer production of pressed aluminium alloy parts with a thickness of up to 4 mm.
We possess modern production technologies from major global manufacturers of CNC machining equipment. For mass production of fittings, we are using Pfiffner transfer machine tools. Medium-sized series are produced with the use of German machine tools made by Chiron. Welding is provided via a robotic welding workstation with the CMT technology. In addition, we possess productive CNC technologies for efficient machining of small as well as large turning parts, machines for the production and grinding of gears and highly precise grinding of cylindrical and conical, external and internal surfaces.
Discover how we work and what sets us apart from our competition. We have at least 9 reasons why you should work with us.
We tailor our services to every order and every client. We carefully study the details of every customer’s specific requirements in order to efficiently optimize the cost of production, as well as to ensure an optimum purchase price for the customer.
A larger part of our manufacturing capacities are fully automated. We also have the advantage of continuous manufacturing. This in combination with our extensive technological assets enables us to manufacture large volume orders in relatively short times.
We have experience with logistics operations all around the world. We regularly deliver our products to the Czech Republic, but also to the USA, Canada, Argentina, France, Hungary, Romania, Germany, Austria, Poland, Turkey, India, Thailand or China.
Our ability to react to customer needs in a flexible and speedy manner is our pride. We assess every enquiry individually and try to propose the shortest possible date of production.
Owing to our proactive approach, we offer to manufacture samples and prototypes. In this way, our customers do not merely get to know our manufacturing possibilities, but they can also receive samples of the required products.
We have the latest production technology at our disposal. Our technological background is regularly innovated and we invest heavily in measuring and inspection systems, as well.
Quality in all its aspects is crucial for us. Therefore, we regularly invest in the renewal of our technologies and purchase new equipment. We pride ourselves on the high qualification and professionalism of all our employees who belong to the best in their professions. Quality is further guaranteed by elaborate internal inspection mechanisms and implemented quality management systems.
The highest achievable quality of our products is very important to us and we strive to constantly improve our quality management systems. Our manufacturing operations and processes are subjected to inspections and measuring in order to assure the best possible conditions for manufacturing. Our in-house measurement lab with 3D measuring instruments and other measuring technologies are used to measure products.
A number of other additional technologies enable us to complete entire projects, beginning with manufacturing (machining, pressing), carrying on with surface treatment, cleaning and packaging to finalizing projects by shipping them to our customers. Our entire production process is controlled by our comprehensive quality management system.
We are one of the leading engineering companies, a reliable supplier, offering mass manufacturing of products in above-standard quality for competitive prices. We export to a number of countries in Europe, North and South America and Asia. Here are several interesting facts about our manufacturing lines in 2017.

Česká zbrojovka, including a specialized CZ-AUTO division, has become one of the companies that want to make a significant contribution to the Fourth Industrial Revolution. In cooperation with the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences and Beneš and Lát Company it founded a joint research and development centre called CARDAM (Centre of Applied Research and Development for Additive Manufacturing). Together they intend to focus mainly on the area of additive manufacturing (3D printing).
CZ-AUTO became a member of the Moravian-Silesian Automotive Cluster (MAC). Thereby it is now ranked amongst the dozens of major manufacturing companies that are already operating in the association. The MAC aims to promote innovation and to increase the competitiveness and export capabilities of affiliated companies, businesses and institutions that operate in the Moravian-Silesian Region.
CZ-AUTO is part of Česká zbrojovka a.s., which belongs to one of the most important Czech engineering companies. CZ-AUTO mainly operates in the field of supplying the automotive, aeronautic and power engineering industries. Our customers include major global companies and we supply components to their production plants on three continents.
The automotive division specializes in machining parts for the automotive industry, especially in manufacturing parts (fittings) used in automobile HVAC systems.
The manufacturing technology we possess makes it possible for us to mass manufacture millions of parts using chip-forming machining as well as to manufacture pressed parts and assemble heat exchanger sub-assemblies.
A major part of our completed projects currently include parts manufactured from aluminium and aluminium alloys, but we also offer machining of various grades of steel and brass.
In addition to machining operations, we offer a number of special finishing processes that are part of the complete manufacturing process.
This includes a wide range of surface treatments, industrial cleaning, product packaging according to customer requirements. Each individual stage is subjected to uncompromising quality.
Our aero division specialises in the manufacture of aircraft components. The tradition of manufacturing on behalf of the aircraft industry has already existed in our company for forty years and now it is focused on the production and the installation of speed reducers, gear units and turboprop engine drive units, including their maintenance.
We additionally also use our experience and skills in the manufacture of aircraft parts in the manufacture of the 1-7 mm front straight and inclined module gearing, the cogs for planetary gears and pinion shafts and gear rings. The new production technologies include tools for grinding the gearing with eight controlled axes. Also amongst the strengths of our company is the productive CNC machining of rotating and non-rotating parts with high demands on precision and quality. The production comprises turning, milling, slotting, broaching, boring by means of the classical technologies – the implementation of gearing using generating and slotting methods, the grinding of internal and external diameters, honing, surface grinding and grinding of gearing. We also provide all the manufactured components with heat treatment and surface finishing.
