Bronze is the result of the mixture between copper and tin. The resulting alloy is more fragile than tin but stronger than pure copper. It offers a wide range of properties such as high ductility, durability, strength, and workability. Bronze is also more readily melted, making it easier to cast and work with. Additionally, other elements such as zinc, lead, and manganese can be added to bronze to form special-purpose materials that have certain enhanced features. Bronze is also used in industrial applications for its excellent thermal and electrical conductivity and non-sparking properties.
Bronze is often used to manufacture nuts, bolts, threaded parts, bearings, bushings, screws, and more. It's often used in machining parts for a wide range of industries including aerospace, aircraft, military, and oil & gas.
Some of the high-quality components machined with bronze include:
Bronze is an extremely versatile alloy that still has the strength and durability to provide components with the right support. It also has conductive properties and results in minimal friction, which is why it is so commonly used in military, aerospace, and oil and gas components. Owens Industries is certain that high-quality bronze components can be created utilizing a variety of CNC machining technologies, including:
