Offering Bronze Casting Technology

A visit to Robertson’s sand cast foundry tells you we excel in producing every kind of casting from bronze boat and ship fittings and submerged bearings for valves, heat exchanger applications and high voltage switching components. Manufacturers count on us for bronze bearings, electrical connectors and other components for their end product assemblies.

Bronze Advantages

Pre-production measurement verifies final casting and machining requirements.

Pre-production measurement verifies final casting and machining requirements.

Bronze castings can replace steel and other metal castings since bronze resists corrosion longer than most other alloys and has a shorter lead time. Bronze offers excellent machinability and corrosion resistance, is non-sparking, lacks magnetism, and provides unique wear characteristics and aesthetics. It melts at about 950 degrees centigrade but the melt temperature varies depending on the amount of tin included in the alloy.

Bronze castings are used in various industries and applications, including metering, fluid power, hardware and locks, power generation, artistic pursuits and many others.

When a leading snowmobile manufacturer asked us to create a component for their nitrogen-energized racing shock system, we began by creating a component that could assure a long life with the material strength to resist the high stresses of a hostile environment. The part also would have to be manufactured with cast aluminum to deliver the lightweight necessary to make the solution practical.

We are improving the dust collection and ventilation system in our foundry. When completed, the new system will enhance air quality while reducing energy consumption. The improvements will result in Robertson becoming more competitive in the marketplace while continuing to assure the safety of workers and protection for the environment.

The new dust collection system will include a floor-mounted dust collector and an upgrade of the fume and odor ducting system that vents the core making process. The project will improve the operation of the automatic pneumatic dampers in the furnace area ducts so they will open and close quickly and dependably. Our ventilation system will also be enhanced. The new design will include a method for improving summer air quality.
