If you’re looking for specialist bronze components for an industrial or commercial project, one of the best approaches is to make contact with a specialist in bespoke bronze castings. But why is this the case?In this article, we explain a little more about the processes involved and the benefits this approach can offer in order to help you decide whether bronze casting is the right choice for you and your company.
One of the most desirable aspects of bronze casting is that the technique can be used to create an endless range of components. Whatever the size and complexity of the item you need, casting specialists will be able to produce it in response to the most precise specifications.
As a result of the levels of versatility mentioned above, specialists in bronze casting can manufacture items that cannot be found anywhere else.By sticking to pre-fabricated or off-the-shelf items, you may be limiting yourself in terms of what you may be able to achieve. In the worst-case scenario, this may lead to your designs being dictated by the limited ready-made equipment that you are able to source. Because of this, bronze casting is almost invariably the preferable option.
One of the biggest advantages of bronze casting is increased design flexibility. With the right tools, an engineer can expertly undercut geometries and all forms of channels. This has the added benefit of less materials being used and weight savings of 3-5% is possible. Because of the low heat conduction of sand, an engineer can also lower the wall thickness with the same melt temperature and filling speed as permanent-mold casting.
Casting specialists are able to cast components of almost any size, with possible weights of up to 2,000lbs. It is also possible for us to produce thousands of pieces per order.So, however large or small your project, they’ll be able to fabricate all bronze parts with no fuss.In addition, specialists can cast items from a diverse selection of bronze alloys to suit a huge number of uses. These alloys include C81100, C83450, C83600, C87300, C89833, C91300, C92200, C95500and many others.
Besides bronze and aluminum casting services, specialists also offer a range of other fabrication options, including machining, tooling, pattern making, assembly, plating, polishing, painting and the arrangement of third party inspection.As a result, you will get all the support and assistance you need from beginning to end.
The Properties Of Bronze
Bronze has many advantages over other materials that are used for casting. It is malleable (can be pressed or hammered into a desired shape without cracking or breaking). Bronze is also affordable (it’s considerably cheaper than gold and silver), it’s extremely durable (chemicals will not cause it to erode) and it looks absolutely beautiful when it’s polished.
If you are interested in finding out more about bronze casting and its benefits, it’s best to reach out to your local specialists and book an appointment where you can tell them about your project and determine if bronze is suitable.
