Bronze Precision Casting Technology
Bronze material, which has been found in nature for centuries, meets the metal parts needs of many sectors today. Bronze, also known as bronze, is an important alloy of copper. Although bronze, which is a harder material than copper, was widely used in weapon and tool making, art works and ornaments in the first years, it is used in many sectors from automotive to electrical household appliances today.
Bronze Casting in Areas Requiring Precision Manufacturing
It is very difficult for copper alloys made of copper and tin or aluminum to take shape. In areas requiring precision production or in alloys that are detailed in design, bronze precision casting is used to obtain products in desired dimensions. Bronze, which is also used in alloys such as copper-nickel, copper-beryllium and copper-zinc, comes in different varieties. Aluminum Bronze and Red Bronze are among the most well-known bronze types. Copper-based alloys containing up to 14% aluminum are called Aluminum Bronze. Al-Bronzes have high mechanical and chemical properties. Hardness degrees can go up to 42 - 45 HRC.
Bronze Precision Casting Process
Precision casting is a casting technique in which wax is used in the mold formation stage. In this technique where wax model is used in molding, the mold cavity is heated and melted when the wax leaves the mold. A method that has been used since ancient times continues to be used today. Not just bronze; We ensure the production of perfect alloys with these processes, which is a casting technique we use in shaping metals such as aluminum, iron and steel. With our systems that enable the production of the requested products to be formed millimetrically, we ensure that even the parts that cannot be produced from the smallest parts are created without any problems. In the systems we have created using the most sensitive techniques, we melt the bronze alloy and pour it into ceramic molds using wax, and thus we obtain a new bronze in the desired dimensions and dimensions.
Mold Stage of the Bronze Precision Casting Process
Wax is used in the molding stage of the bronze investment casting process. A sample model of the piece to be cast is extracted from the wax. After the wax model is covered with ceramic mortar, the ceramic shell formed is cast into the mold. As a result of this casting process, the bronze in liquid form solidifies and takes the shape of the mold with a cavity and therefore the part. During this solidification, the metal is separated from the ceramic mold and the part is produced. This part is ready for use after cleaning and polishing.
Use of Bronze in Systems Using Sea Water
Bronze materials are preferred in systems using sea water. In addition, bronze is used in low conductivity environments. Mold, runner and feeder design is very important according to the types of bronze investment casting. The raw materials used for liquid metal, the melting furnaces used and deoxidation are very important and important factors for this material. At BRK Metal, which performs the shaping process of bronze with the latest technological materials and a team of experts in the field, we are pushing the possibilities, superiorities and limits of production methods to create higher quality in engineering. By creating a theoretical and practical infrastructure to produce the best with our bronze precision casting processes, we increase the quality of the resulting products in parallel.
