Durable open-water equipment provider

U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine produces various marine industry metal castings that optimize vessel or platform equipment usability and longevity. Typical items we manufacture are:

Each casting step is performed in-house under the supervision of an experienced engineering team. Our capabilities include:

  • Research & Design
  • Mold-Making
  • Prototyping
  • Full-Scale Casting
  • Finished Machining
  • Inspection
  • Delivery

Cast metal alloys are used in numerous marine applications because casting processes can create relatively complex shapes. Here are some examples:

  • Superstructures
  • Structural Components
  • Interior Fixtures
  • Supporting Equipment

Technologies to realize your design

What sets U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine apart is the ability to produce large cast products tailored to client specifications using static and centrifugal casting techniques. Our capabilities include:

  • Castings up to 35,000 pounds
  • Lengths of up to 80 inches for centrifugally cast parts
  • Outside diameters as large as 158 inches for centrifugally cast parts
  • No size limit for statically cast parts

Our facility has an in-house machine shop with advanced CNC equipment, enabling us to deliver finished castings with precise dimensions. Eliminating time-consuming outsourced secondary processing streamlines client supply chains. We’re capable of machining workpieces with:

  • Outside diameters of 150 inches
  • Lengths of 80 inches 
  • Tolerances are +/- .001 inches

Corrosive conditions call for tough metals

Exposure to heat, salt water, and colossal ocean currents 24 hours per day, seven days per week, puts any application under duress. That’s why part material selection is essential.

The marine industry uses metal alloys that are lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and have superior mechanical properties. As a leading marine industry castings manufacturer, we can help find the best material for your marine application. Those we often work with include:

  • Bronze And Highly Leaded Bronze
  • Copper
  • Stainless Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Nickel

Other metal alloys can be used upon request. Contact us to discuss your needs further.

Looking out for at-sea applications

Whether it’s a pleasure boat, military vessel, or offshore platform, the equipment functionality is paramount. Failure can put essential personnel and the environment at risk. At U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine, quality is what we value.

Material is acquired from reputable suppliers, and compliance is confirmed upon arrival. Precision testing and measuring equipment ensure every part produced surpasses applicable industry standards and customer specifications. All orders are audited for accuracy before shipment.

We understand that waiting for a single component can keep a vessel tied to the dock. Our team turns around rough parts as quickly as two weeks and finished pieces as fast as eight weeks, depending on lead time and other factors.
