Bronze Forging Process
Bronze offers flexibility in the type of forging process that is utilized. Depending on the alloy composition, bronze can be forged at cold, warm, or hot temperatures using closed or open die forging processes.
Bronze Forging – Material Information
Bronze is a metal alloy consisting primarily of copper with tin additives that can be forged at a variety of temperatures. Bronze may also include other metals for various applications. Bronze is a sturdy metal that offers high strength at low density and has high resistance to corrosion and metal fatigue. Bronze is non-magnetic and can be an efficient conductor of electricity and of heat.
Bronze Forging Considerations
Bronze Forging allows for many beneficial factors, including:
- High dimensional precision
- Resistance to corrosion and metal fatigue
- High thermal and electrical conductivity
- Non-magnetic and non-sparking properties
Bronze Forging has a few disadvantages, including:
- Possible atmospheric reactions
- Sensitivity to extreme high heat
