World-Class Quality and Performance
Higher density. Finer grain structure. Uniform distribution of the alloying elements. These are hallmarks of centrifugal horizontal casting. Magnus pioneered this technique when we developed centrifugally cast traction motor support bearings. Centrifugal horizontal casting traps oxides and light density elements while the rapid chill rate improves the mechanical properties of the bronze shell.
Magnus is the exclusive supplier to all North American Class 1 railroads and major service repair shops.
