CASTING BRONZE BUSHING
Die Cast Bushing | CNC Processing
As friction-reducing components, it is essential that casting bronze bushings are constructed from wear-resistant materials that provide good sliding properties. While bushings can be fabricated from a variety of plastics and metals, bronze provides several distinct advantages over alternative options in heavy-load applications.
As an inherently moldable and easy-to-machine material, bronze is well-suited for achieving a range of bushing designs.
The bronze alloy used in casting bronze bushings undergoes a continuous or centrifugal casting process, giving the metal a finer grain structure and improved mechanical properties. The bronze alloy cast bar is then cut and processed into the finished bushing using a computer numerical control (CNC) lathe or other precision machining method. Casting bronze bushings exhibit excellent structural strength, durability, and resistance to compressive forces, making them well-suited for harsh, high-wear applications. They can also withstand high temperatures without losing their strength.

Because the casting bronze bushing has the advantages of large bearing capacity, small radial size, and low price, most of the casting bronze bushing are used as sliding bearings in equipment with low speed and heavy load, and harsh mechanical working environment. In the main transmission system of the tire vulcanizing machine, all mechanical transmissions from the worm gear reducer use copper sleeves as sliding bearings. However, the copper sleeve has a large frictional resistance and is easy to wear and fail.
Bearing With Groove – Self-lubricating
Therefore, in addition to ensuring the quality of the material selection and processing, good lubrication is essential when using the copper sleeve. To ensure good lubrication, in addition to selecting a good lubricant, there must be a suitable oil groove to store the lubricating grease and evenly spread the entire lubricating surface, to form an oil film with a certain bearing capacity and reduce friction and mechanical wear. Therefore, the role of the oil tank is particularly important.

Your Partner for Standard and special bearings
A bushing, also known as a plain bearing, is designed to reduce friction between two surfaces as they slide against one another. In machines and equipment with rotating or sliding shafts, bushings are used to enhance overall efficiency and longevity while reducing noise and vibration. They generally come in the following two styles:
Sleeve bushings. Sleeve bushings are cylindrical in shape, featuring straight inside and outside diameters. Flanged bushings. Flanged bushings feature a flange that extends radially outward from one end. The purpose of the flange is to act as a thrust face at one end of the bushing also preventing any axial movement.

Casting is a manufacturing process that involves pouring molten metal into a mold to create a desired shape. In the case of bronze bushings, the casting process is essential to ensure the durability and performance of the final product. Here, we discuss the key steps in casting bronze bushings:
A mold is created using a pattern that matches the exact shape and dimensions of the desired bushing.
High-quality bronze alloys are melted in a furnace to achieve the desired temperature and consistency.
Once the bronze reaches the appropriate temperature, it is poured into the prepared mold.
The molten bronze cools and solidifies within the mold, taking on its intended shape.
After the bronze has solidified, the mold is removed, revealing the newly cast bushing. The bushing is then subjected to various finishing processes, such as trimming, grinding, and polishing, to ensure it meets the required specifications.

Casting Bronze Bushing VS Oil-impregnated Bronze Bushings
Casting Bronze Bushing
Casting bronze bushings are machined from C93200 (SAE 660) bronze for superior performance. The continuous casting process ensures a uniform bronze structure throughout the process bearings are free of porosity and hard particle inclusions common to other casting processes. Standard bearing lines are available in over 900 sizes, these standards provide off-the-shelf economy for most applications and may be easily resized, oil grooved, or graphitized to meet special requirements. In addition to standard sleeve (plain) bearings, the following products are available -Finished bearings -Grease or oil groove casting bronze bushing -Graphite-filled groove bearings -Graphite-filled plug bearings -Special alloy bearings
Oil-impregnated Bronze Bushings
Oil-impregnated bronze bushings are characterized by their ability to self-lubricate. This effect is possible due to the powder metallurgical process:
Bronze powder is gravity-filled into a die of the desired bushing size. The powder is then pressed to bond the powder particles together. The powder particles in the part are then bonded together in a furnace. The furnace temperature is just high enough to bond the particles together without melting the metal. This sintering process is the key to oil impregnation. Sintering, by its very nature, reduces the porosity of the product as it bonds the powder particles together, but it is possible to control the degree of this process. In the case of oil-impregnated bronze bushings, the final porosity is maintained at about 25%, which means that tiny interconnected capillaries are still interwoven throughout the material. To finish the manufacturing process the bushing is then pressed through a calibration set of tools to the required tolerances. The bushing is then vacuum impregnated which forces oil into the interconnected porosity.
The difference between casting bronze bushing and oil impregnated bronze bushing
Oil-impregnated bushings originated as automotive components, however they are used in many other industries. In general, our oil-impregnated bronze bushings are best suited for low to moderate loads, but they do withstand high speeds better than many alternatives. They also work well over a wide temperature range of approximately 10-220°F, which means they are suitable for use in outdoor and industrial environments.
Unlike oil-impregnated bushings, casting bronze bushings are not formed from powder. Instead, they are formed from solid or hollow cast bronze bars that undergo a machining process designed to achieve a precise final shape. The bronze is continuously or centrifugally cast into solid or hollow bars. Casting bronze bushings do not start out as a powder, so they maintain a finer grain structure and thus have higher strength. In general, casting bronze bushings are also stronger, more durable, and more reliable under compression forces. This combination of properties makes casting bushings ideal for applications involving heavier loads.
