Simulation Software Assists in Manufacturing Quality Bronze & Aluminum Sand Castings

Erie Bronze & Aluminum’s engineering department uses SOLIDCast and FLOWCast software for design and flow simulations to help create castings and gating systems that reduce costs, shorten lead times, and produce higher quality castings. Flow simulation allows Erie Bronze & Aluminum to see a simulation of the liquid metal and the transferring of heat that occurs during the production of a specific casting before building a physical pattern or mold. Our engineers input a CAD model, and the software simulates to evaluate any complications, casting defects, or issues with the design.

Flow simulations allow Erie Bronze & Aluminum to reduce time spent on the sampling and first article inspection process, reduce the weight of material required for each mold, and ultimately lead to the production of high-quality bronze castings. Not only does SOLIDCast enhance our efficiency, but it reduces wasted time and material, which saves our customers money.

Bronze Sand Casting Capabilities, Alloys & Specifications

Aluminum Bronze | Manganese Bronze | Tin Bronze | Silicon Bronze 

Erie Bronze & Aluminum casts various non-leaded bronze alloys for many different industries.  All metals are alloyed in-house, using our SPECTROLAB metal analyzer.

Our foundry specializes in the following bronze alloys:

  1. Aluminum Bronze
    • Aluminum bronze alloys are wear-resistant, non-sparking, and designed to withstand corrosion. These properties make aluminum bronze alloys suitable for applications exposed to seawater, chlorides, dilute acids, and other harsh environments.
  2. Manganese Bronze
    • The strongest of the bronze alloys are manganese bronze alloys. They are mainly utilized for heavy-duty mechanical products due to their ability to operate under hefty loads and speeds, as well as their high tensile and yield strength.
  3. Tin Bronze
    • Tin bronze alloys have reasonably high strength and excellent wear resistance, which makes them an excellent choice for bearings, piston rings, and gears. Like aluminum bronze alloys, tin bronze alloys are known for their corrosion resistance in marine applications.
  4. Silicon Bronze
    • Silicon bronze alloys exhibit immense corrosion resistance when submerged in liquids or chemicals. Applications for silicon bronze alloys range from bearings and gears to intricately shaped pump and valve components.

Erie Bronze & Aluminum has experience working with several different bronze casting material specifications, including military, ASTM, and various aerospace applications.

A few of the most common sand bronze casting specifications we work with include:

  • ASTM B148 – This Specification Establishes Requirements for Sand Castings Produced from Copper-Base Alloys
  • AMS 4860 – Manganese Bronze, Sand, and Centrifugal Castings
  • ASTM B584 – Standard Specification for Copper Alloy Sand Castings for General Applications
  • ASTM B763 – Standard Specification for Copper Alloy Sand Castings for Valve Applications
  • MIL-B- 21230A – Military Specification, Bronze, Nickel Aluminum, and Manganese-Nickel Aluminum Castings, Ship Propeller Application
  • QQ-C- 390 – Military Specification Copper Alloy Castings
