Aluminum Castings

Erie Bronze & Aluminum supplies rough machined aluminum tubes and rings typically used in labyrinth seals, bearings, and bearing housings. We custom make all components to your required dimensions to help cut down on your machining.

Aluminum labyrinth seal and bearing material cast at Erie Bronze offers unparalleled quality both in the elimination of porosity and metallurgical consistency. Cast 850, 852, and 443 aluminum tubes and rings have a maximum 13 inch length and minimum 3.5 inch outside diameter, providing an excellent labyrinth seal and bearing qualities, good compressive yield strengths, and excellent lubricity and machinability as opposed to other materials like plastics and AL6061.

We’ll manufacture your components down to the exact specifications with no minimum quantities. Whether you need 1 or 100 or more pieces, we’ll meet your spec in any size and volume.

Glass Container Molds

Erie Bronze specializes in bronze glass mold components such as neck rings, bottle molds and bottom plates. These components are cast using proprietary Eballoy® non-ferrous alloys designed to improve wear and corrosion resistance, while offering glass-makers thermal conductivity ranging from 18 to 37 (Btu/sq. ft./ft/hr/°ft) at 850°F.

Erie Bronze produces neck rings in an as cast or semi‐machined condition with the mating faces milled, one or more of the outside diameters turned and ends faced (additional features such as face vents can be included), or finish machined. Our in‐house machine shop measures each set for half on half and verifies the fit between the male and female halves (“shake”).

Upon request, Erie Bronze also offers our high quality neck rings with a nickel insert. The insert is available in Rockwell C hardness ranging from 30 to 44.
