  • Bronze and Copper-Alloy Bearings
    Dozens of copper alloys are available as bearing materials. Most of these can be grouped into five classes: copper lead, copper tin (sometimes called tin bronze), leaded bronze, aluminum bronze, and beryllium copper. As a general rule in these alloys, a higher lead content promotes compatibility
  • Aluminum-Alloy Bearings
    is the most ductile of the cast alloys and can withstand heavy loads without cracking or fretting. It also has good compatibility. An easier-casting version is A850.0-T5. In hardness, this alloy stands between the bronzes and the babbitts. The most widely used cast aluminum-tin bearing alloy
  • Teaching new components old tricks
    downtime. The SPS slide has an aluminum-bronze alloy construction with a heavy cross section that is said to offer superior loadbearing capabilities throughout the stroke compared with roller slides. The pneumatically powered units are available with strokes ranging from 0.5 to 2 in. and provide
  • The Application of OIM to Friction Stir Processing of Cast NiAl Bronze Materials (.pdf)
    Institute for high-strength aluminum alloys [1-3]. In FSP, a cylindrical, wear-resistant tool consisting of a smaller diameter pin with a concentric, larger diameter shoulder is rotated and forced into the surface of a work piece. As the tool penetrates, a combination of frictional and adiabatic
  • Controlled Plasticity Burnishing to Improve the Performance of Friction Stir Processed Ni-Al Bronze (.pdf)
    Friction stir welding (FSW) allows the joining of aluminum alloys in ways previously unattainable offering new manufacturing technology. Friction stir processing (FSP) of cast alloys such as Ni-Al bronze eliminates casting voids and improves the properties to that of wrought material. However
  • Zinc
    ), and wood (in paints). Zinc is also used to make brass, bronze, and die-casting alloys in plate, strip, and coil; foundry alloys; superplastic zinc; and activators and stabilizers for plastics. Zinc-casting alloys can be grouped into two general categories: standard zinc die-casting alloys, and the newer
  • Copper
    shapes, forgings, wire, and castings. These metals are grouped according to composition into several general categories: coppers, high-copper alloys, brasses, leaded brasses, bronzes, aluminum bronzes, silicon bronzes, copper nickels, and nickel silvers. Copper-based alloys form adherent films
  • Cold Forging
    degrees. Cold forging is primarily used on smaller parts of 10 pounds or less for applications requiring high strength, close tolerances, and volume production. Cold forging materials include lower-alloy and carbon steels, 300 and 400 series stainless steel, selected aluminum alloys, brass and bronze.
