When it comes to heavy equipment and industrial machinery, degradation is commonplace.
Power Generation Castings
From operating household appliances to connecting international businesses, electricity is critical for communities around the world. Whether it’s coal, natural gas, renewable, or nuclear, power plants must remain operable to meet growing energy demands.
Optimize power generation equipment functionality with U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine. Our power generation castings stand up to extreme temperatures, corrosion, and wear, keeping machinery operating optimally.
Your power generation cast parts source
U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine is a full-service manufacturer of power generation castings. Our team produces various cast metal parts that optimize power equipment functionality and longevity, lowering operating costs.
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.
Each casting step is performed in-house under the direction of a knowledgeable engineering team. Our capabilities include:
- Research & Design
- Full-Scale Casting
- Finished Machining
The power generation industry utilizes a wide array of equipment, like generators, boilers, heat exchangers, gas and steam turbines, windmills, nuclear reactors, and solar arrays, to name a few. Sometimes the size, age, or location of these devices means custom parts are required for service.
Critical power suppliers require huge parts
U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine manufactures power generation castings of any size, but our area of expertise is large cast products tailored to client specifications. We utilize static and centrifugal casting techniques and have the following capabilities:
- 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
An onsite machine shop enables us to deliver finished castings with precise dimensions. As a result, the lead time associated with secondary processing is eliminated. The shop contains advanced CNC equipment capable of machining workpieces with:
- Outside diameters of 150 inches
- Lengths of 80 inches
- Tolerances are +/- .001 inches
A byproduct of efficient power generation is extreme heat and corrosion. It’s not uncommon for components to come into contact with temperatures that exceed 1,000 degrees. For vital equipment components to withstand these conditions, they must be built from robust materials.
As a top power industry castings manufacturer, U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine helps you identify the best metal alloys for your application. Those we use frequently include:
Other materials are available upon request.
Let’s power the world
From one-off prototypes to large quantities, U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine manufacture your power generation castings on time and within budget. We combine trade skills with technology to work smarter and produce better results.
Letting us provide cast metal parts frees you to concentrate on what you do best – delivering power to customers. 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.
