When it comes to heavy equipment and industrial machinery, degradation is commonplace.
Mining Industry Castings Manufacturer
Extracting minerals from the earth requires resilient, durable equipment. U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine combines cutting-edge technologies with proven expertise to produce friction-resistant, hard-wearing cast metal parts that optimize your mining operation.
Boosting mining application performance
U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine is a full-service supplier of mining industry casted metal parts. The components we manufacture optimize application functionality, wearability, and efficiency.
As heavy materials pass through minerals processing equipment, components begin to wear.
Without nuts to hold things together, heavy equipment would fall apart.
Gears are toothed, mechanical transmission elements used to transfer motion and power between components.
Cast rings are found all around us, from jet engines to military equipment.
Heavy equipment and machines are essential for completing industrial functions on time and within budget.
Heavy equipment success and failure sometimes comes down to the ability to withstand loads repeatedly.
Whether lifting substantial loads or crushing hard minerals, heavy machinery must tolerate extreme forces repeatedly.
In industrial applications, pumps and compressors are relied upon to power critical devices.
Unmitigated friction can bring any industrial application to a halt. Protect heavy equipment against wear with tapered bushings from U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine.
Mining and materials-handling operators often must reduce raw material sizes to create something sellable.
When it comes to heavy machinery, unaddressed friction can be catastrophic.
The ability to withstand loads repeatedly is critical for heavy machinery. Boost equipment performance with flange bushings from U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine.
Sometimes, being unbalanced better. Take your application to new performance levels with eccentric bushings from U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine.
Every casting step is performed in-house under the supervision of veteran engineers. Our capabilities include:
- Research & Design
- Full-Scale Casting
- Finished Machining
Metal castings uses in mining applications
Mining industry equipment is continually under extreme duress, as they pull hard minerals from the earth, reduce their size, and sort them appropriately. Casting processes can create relatively complex shapes from materials with high strength, wear-resistance, and anti-corrosion properties.
Consequently, cast metal alloys are used in many mining applications. Here are some examples:
- Burner Tips
- Cooler Grates
- Crushing Mills
- Grate Bars
- Feeder Rolls
- Aggregate Mills
- Kiln Nose Rings
- Pallet Cars
- Precipitator Thimbles
- Traveling Grate Components
- Slurry Pumps
- Pellet Conveyors
Superior cast metal part mining solutions
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
We have an in-house machine shop with advanced CNC equipment, enabling us to deliver finished castings with precise dimensions. By eliminating time-consuming outsourced secondary processing, client supply chains are optimized. Our team is capable of machining workpieces with:
- Outside diameters of 150 inches
- Lengths of 80 inches
- Tolerances are +/- .001 inches
Tough conditions, robust materials
Exposure to heat, corrosion, and hard materials 24 hours per day, seven days per week, can significantly strain mining equipment. That’s why material selection is essential.
As a leading mining industry castings manufacturer, U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine can help find the best material for your marine application. We frequently work with the following metal alloys:
- Bronze And Highly Leaded Bronze
- Stainless Steel
Other metal alloys can be used upon request. Contact us to discuss your needs further.
