Bronze rings are cylindrical components of reduced thickness with a hole in the middle which generally function as spacers, wedges, springs, wear pads, locking device and device to prevent galvanic corrosion. It is a component used in the most diverse applications, particularly to support force arising from both axial and radial loads.
Due to its low friction, when in contact with other materials, the bronze rings are components of various types of machinery and equipment widely used in the engineering and power generation.
Italbronze’s bronze rings are manufactured with the highest technology, modern equipment, and processes of continuous casting by centrifugation through finishing and precision machining on CNC machines. The production process is recognized by ABNT and by national and international organizations, ensuring a product highly reliable and appropriate to the needs of each country.
The technology and the processes adopted by Italbronze guarantee a uniform structure to the products, resulting in bronze rings of high performance and durability.
Italbronze bronze rings are qualified for use in machines and equipment that operate with sliding movements between moving surfaces based on the speed and load applied (stress on surfaces).
Due to the use of raw materials of high standard in their production lines, Italbronze’s bronze rings are highly recommended for use in various applications, such as:
- Electric motor collector rings
- Anchor for axial loads
- Friction washer
- Bearing auto compensator replacement
Bronze rings are found in various industrial segments such as metal mechanics engineering, automotive, oil and gas, mining, power generation and agriculture, among others.
Italbronze bronze rings are manufactured with dimensions and formats that the client demand and is available in various bronze alloys, as-11, IBz IBz-21, IBz-31, IBz-34, IBz-41 to be chosen according to the needs of each project.
One of the major differentiators of Italbronze’s bronze rings is that they are produced according to the need of each equipment for which they are intended, with millimetric precision according to the measurements provided.
