Centrifugal Aluminum Casting
Aluminum is a soft, silvery-white metal with a thin oxide coating that protects against corrosion and degradation. The material has a long lifespan and is recyclable, making it environmentally friendly.
Aluminum easily binds with other elements like iron, silicon, copper, magnesium, manganese, and zinc. As a result, alloyed aluminum can exhibit a wide range of characteristics.
- Electrical conductivity
- Shock absorption
- High strength-to-weight ratio
- Sound absorption
- Thermal conductivity
Your cast aluminum component provider
U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine specializes in manufacturing custom large industrial aluminum castings for heavy machinery. Combining advanced equipment, skilled personnel, and a quality-first mindset, we deliver precision parts on time and within budget.
Components are manufactured using centrifugal and static casting techniques. We’re also a leading foundry for large aluminum sand castings. Built-in automation and controls ensure improved precision and quality.
As a premier large centrifugal aluminum casting manufacturer, our aluminum parts are made using centrifugal force. It distributes and refines the molten material in the mold. High centrifugal force levels press the molten material against the mold wall, creating a dense tubular product.
Products we produce include:
- Straight Bushings
- Gear Blanks And Gear Worm Blanks
- Thrust Collars
- Shaft Sleeves
- Tapered Bushings
- Split Bushings
- Flange Bushings
- Eccentric Bushings
For aluminum part sand casting, sand is used to create a mold. Liquid metal is added to the mold to create a component. Sand cast aluminum parts offer high performance at an affordable price point. The process is cost-effective, especially for small quantities, because of its low tooling cost.
The aluminum casting experts
Aluminum is ideal for a wide range of heavy machinery and equipment, but choosing the appropriate alloy is essential for proper functionality. U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine can help you select the best aluminum material for your application.
All aluminum materials are acquired from trustworthy suppliers, and compliance is verified upon arrival. Precision testing and inspection equipment confirm every part produced surpasses applicable requirements. Orders are audited for accuracy before shipment.
Deadlines are crucial for heavy machinery and equipment applications. We can produce rough parts as quickly as two weeks and finished pieces as fast as eight weeks, depending on lead time and other factors.
