Why should you choose to centrifugally cast
a babbitt bearing?
Spinning a bearing at the proper PRM allows molten babbitt to be poured under pressure. This centrifugal force combined with rapid cooling provides the best bond strength and bearing integrity.
Our centrifugal casting process ensures the poured babbitt is free of impurities, gasses, and imperfections; guaranteeing high precision results and extending the life of your bearing!
Your finished product will go through extensive quality checks, including dye penetrant testing. We’ll also provide you with an ultrasonic bond certification.
Our facility maintains an inventory of certified babbitt so that we can match any OEM specification babbitt your bearing requires.
Arc Flame Spray Application
Our arc flame spray application is an excellent metal coating solution. The process allows us to increase the original surface thickness of bearings or components by applying an arc spray metal (like bronze, steel, or cast iron). We then machine your components to OEM specifications. Learn More!
