Ready-to-use parts machined to your blueprints
Magnolia bronze bearings are all either cast continuously or cast in steel. No sand is used in manufacturing. This entirely eliminates patterns and core boxes with savings passed on to you. Because all your machining can be done by Magnolia, you are saved additional machine time in your own plant, resulting in lower costs. All castings are machined. No bronze is shipped in an "as cast" state.
Magnolia steel-cast bronze wears much longer and is far tougher and stronger than the best sand cast product. Being absolutely free of any hidden sand particles insures a longer life for your shaft.
The Magnolia crystal control method of centrifugal casting allows for a uniform or "isotropic" crystal structure, unlike that found in sand cast metals, while raising physical characteristics far above the requirements for similar formula sand castings.
