The continuous cast process begins with molten bronze being poured through a carbon graphite die. The die is surrounded by a cooling jacket, through which water flows to chill and solidify the cast tube, bar or shape. As the bronze exits the die by gravity, the casting solidifies and is pulled out slowly by rolls or pinch rolls. The rapid cooling process reduces the grain size and as the casting exits from the lower section of the bar machine, a homogeneous micro-structure is obtained. With the continuous cast method, a minimum stock allowance can be controlled, reducing the amount of machining necessary to produce a finished part.
The most common cast aluminum bronze, C95400 is used in many heavy duty, high load and high wear applications. Good tensile strength, ductility, weldability and resistance to fatigue. Typical applications include worm gears, bushings, pump parts and bearings.
C95900 Aluminum Bronze has good strength and corrosion resistance. Typical uses include gears, worm drives, valve guides and seats.
