C63000 Nickel Aluminum Bronze

C630000 Nickel Aluminum Bronze is a great alloy for applications under severe loading conditions.  C630 combines high strength and exceptional wear resistance.  The addition of Nickel increases the alloy strength with diminishing its ductility. Also known as AMS 4640, C63000 is a wrought alloy.  It maintains strong corrosion resistance and performs well at both high

What is Dairy Bronze?

Dairy Bronze is a general term for the Nickel Silver Bronze Alloy C97600.  This cast bronze alloy contains 63-67% Cu, 3.5-4.5 % Sn, 3-5% Pb, 3-9% Zn, 1.5% Fe, 19-21.5% Ni, 1% Mn, and 0.15% Si.  C976 Dairy Bronze has a relatively high machinability rating of 70. The term “Dairy Bronze” is derived from one

Maganese Bronze Application Spotlight

Application: Take Up Idler Bushings – Heavy Duty Earth Moving Equipment Idler bushings are subject to abrasive wear, deformation, and contamination.  Replacing a worn Idler Bushing can take a shovel out of service and cost thousands of dollars in lost production.  For these reasons, maximizing service life of the component is absolutely crucial.

6 Benefits of Domestic Outsourcing for OEMs

OEMs can experience several advantages by sourcing their components from contract manufacturers. Domestic outsourcing offers OEMs the benefits provided by global outsourcing, but avoids the inherent disadvantages such as increased freight cost and long lead times. Not only can this process reduce cost in multiple areas, but it can promote an increase in revenue and

What is Silicon Aluminum Bronze?

It is well known that the Aluminum Bronze families of alloys offer distinct advantages in a number of areas.  These attributes include higher mechanical properties, excellent anti corrosive abilities, along with good fatigue and anti-galling strengths.  For the most part these advantages were obtained with the tradeoff of a lower machinability rating. This lower machinability rating

What is Naval Brass?

Naval Brass refers to a copper alloy of around 59% Copper 40% Zinc and 1% Tin with a trace amount of Lead.  This alloy falls into the subfamily for Brasses known as Alpha Beta or Duplex Brasses.  These Alpha Beta Brasses are generally harder and stronger than other non-Alpha Beta Brasses. As its name implies,
