Jewelry Casting: Advantages of Tin Alloys vs Zinc Alloys

For jewelry casting, manufacturers have a wide range of base metals and alloys to select from for their pieces. Most common metals that consumers are familiar with are gold, silver, platinum, and sterling silver. Yet there are many other types of alloys that may be used, including tin and zinc. When determining which alloy to…

Manufacturing Benefits of Pure Tin in Shot & Granular Form  

When evaluating metals used to strengthen other alloys and to provide unique mechanical and physical properties, tin in higher purities is one metal that manufacturers take a close look at. Tin is an abundant metal as it is used in a number of manufacturing purposes and industries. This metal is often used as an outer…

Benefits of Alloying Ag with Sn Alloys

While tin (Sn) is not mentioned as often as copper, it is another widely used metal for industrial applications. Tin is used most in electroplating, where the metal is used to coat other base metals to provide protection from other factors such as corrosion. Electroplating can also provide a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. The tin…

Shot and Cubed Alloys: Advantages of Using Different Shaped Metals

Due to advanced manufacturing processes, companies today can use a range of base metals and alloys to create the right products and components to their industries. When obtaining the metals that will be used in casting, extruding and forming processes, manufacturers can request the alloys and base metals in various sizes and shapes. Ingots, cubes,…

Selecting the Appropriate Babbitt Alloy

Babbitt metals are either lead or tin based, and the metal makes excellent bearings that are easy to pour as a DIY project. However, before you pour your bearings, you must select the correct babbitt metal in order to ensure your engine or piece of machinery operates correctly and efficiently. If you know the composition…

How to Pour Babbitt Bearings

Do you have old babbitt bearings that need to be replaced? Babbitt is a special type of metal that was designed for use as bearings due to its heat resistance and durability. The metal is normally comprised of varying percentages of copper, antimony, lead, arsenic and tin. The exact percentages vary, according to the grade….

Antimony: Possessing Durability and Versatility When Alloyed with Other Metals

Semiconductors, machine bearings, and utensils are all made from varying amounts of metal alloys. Yet these items also possess one common factor: antimony. Antimony is a semi-metal element that comes in both a powdered form as well as a hard and brittle metal. Possessing a silvery, blush white appearance, this element is highly desired when…

Smooth operation

Choosing the right Babbitt alloy helps to increase a bearing’s useful life Reliable machine operation depends on a properly working bearing assembly. If there is a failure within the bearing, such as a decrease in lubrication, the resulting heat from friction can not only decrease the life of the bearing but also cause equipment to…

Keep on rolling

Babbitt metals ensure machinery runs smoothly Bearings play an integral role in machine efficiency by reducing friction between moving parts. The earliest recorded examples of bearing usage date back to the Romans, and in the year 1500, Leonardo da Vinci sketched a design for a helicopter that incorporated ball bearings. Today, common types of bearings…

Safe sparklers

Using lead-free pewter alloys for making jewelry helps alleviate health concerns Adding lead to an alloy can help create characteristics—such as softness and lower melting temperatures—that are useful for many applications. However, lead also is a neurotoxin that is dangerous to animals and humans. Small children are more vulnerable to the effects of lead exposure…
