Erie Bronze & Aluminum has been involved in supplying bronze moulding components to the Container Glass Industry for over 50 years. We ship our products to all corners of the earth and maintain an excellent reputation for quality, service and fast deliveries. Based on our strict Quality Control system, Mould Shops around the world have faithfully used Erie Bronze castings for Neck Rings, Bottle Moulds, Bottom Plates and Baffles.
Our bronze neck rings are supplied in a variety of conditions:
- As cast
- As cast with a nickel insert
- Semi-finish machined with or without a nickel insert – the mating faces and ends milled, and one or more of the bands turned. Although typically held much tighter, our in-house machine shop works to a "half on half" tolerance of .002 (.05mm) and "shake" is held within .002 (.05mm).
- Finish machined with or without a nickel insert– completely machined to your print and ready for production.
When purchasing finished neck rings, the mating finished nickel guide ring is also available and will be shipped inside the neck ring thereby guaranteeing the perfect fit.
Bottle Mould castings are supplied in the as cast condition and must be machined prior to production. Whether your glass container is round, oval, or square – handle or no handle – Erie Bronze has the technological know-how to provide the perfect casting.
Bottom Plates and Baffles
Also supplied in the as cast condition and must be machined prior to production.
All Erie Bronze Glass Moulding Components are cast using strict quality control, designed to improve wear and corrosion resistance.
Eballoy 700® (minox 700XX)
Excellent bronze moulding alloy with 15% nickel providing superior wear and corrosion resistance for all moulding components.
Eballoy 728® (minox with 1% silicon)
A bronze alloy very similar to our Eballoy 700 with a higher silicon content for increased machinability. This alloy is widely used in both Neck Ring and Bottle Mould applications.
Eballoy 690® (9D)
An alternative choice for your bottle mould needs where the operating environment consists of severe wear conditions at elevated temperatures.
