Bronze is another heavily alloyed material, dependent on what the part end need is. Bronze can be produced in any of the processes listed within the MATRIX.
Typical needs of bronze parts are: corrosion resistance, lubrication, high strength, abrasion and wear resistance. Typical parts are powdered metal bearings and bushings, as well as cast impellors and pump housings.
Powdered metal process allows for closest near net shape part and finest surface finish. As parts grow in size casting becomes the next option, which we can help you determine.
Bronze is highly machinable but speeds to do vary by the alloying needed. Once defined it is very repeatable in process for dimensional integrity, porosity control and machinability.
It can be painted, plated and polished.
