Bronze and high-leaded bronze are some of the most commonly used metals for heavy machinery parts fabrication, and it’s for a good reason.
Non-Ferrous Metal Castings
The heart of heavy machinery is components. Whether at construction or underground mine, unscheduled shutdowns bring productivity to a halt.
The key to improving industrial equipment performance and longevity is using cast metal parts fabricated from high-quality materials. U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine’s area of expertise is manufacturing large custom metal castings from the following alloys.
Copper and copper alloys exhibit a wide range of characteristics that enhance heavy equipment and machinery performance.
Stainless steel is a family of iron-based alloys composed of high amounts of chromium, which is sanitary, resists rust, and withstands extreme temperatures.
Aluminum is a soft, silvery-white metal with a thin oxide coating that protects against corrosion and degradation.
Nickel alloys are metals composed of iron, other elements, and nickel.
Alloys and their uses
We produce precision cast parts from an array of ferrous and non-ferrous metals using centrifugal and static techniques. These components are adept at withstanding friction, wear, and corrosion.
- Straight Bushings
- Screw Down Nut Blanks
- Gear Blanks / Gear Worm Blanks
- Thrust Collars
- Shaft Sleeves
- Tapered Bushings
- Split Bushings
- Flange Bushings
- Eccentric Bushings
Alloys we use are integrated into many heavy equipment applications. Examples include:
- Crusher Parts
- Architectural Bronze Castings
- Heavy Equipment
- Oil & Gas
- Military & Defense
- Mining Equipment
- Construction Equipment
- Power Generation
- Industrial Pumps
Your cast metal materials partner
U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine has revolutionized the centrifugal and static cast industry. Since the establishment of our foundry a century ago, we’ve grown to become the trusted manufacturer of cast heavy equipment parts in North America and across the world.
Our metallurgy experts can help you select the best material for your project. All processes are performed following a stringent quality management system. Rough parts are turned around as quickly as two weeks, and finished pieces are completed as fast as eight weeks, depending on lead time and other factors.
