Triangle Manufacturing Introduces Brass Components for Marine Usage
Press release date: July 9, 2014
Triangle Manufacturing, the largest manufacturer of lazy susan turntable bearings in the world, works to expand their material
offerings and capabilities.
Triangle Manufacturing, a US-based high-volume manufacturer of OEM-specific components has expanded their capabilities to include brass stampings. Triangle can use brass for their lazy susan bearings, mountings and custom stampings. Triangle utilizes Quarter Hard Brass Strip with a tensile strength of 54,000 PSI that allows for increased strength compared to typical carbon steel.
The benefits of brass are its anti-corrosive nature when compared to steel alloys; it also does not rust as carbon steel can. Due to these high anti-corrosive attributes, brass is an ideal material for marine applications, such as boat seats, or for applications involving water and humidity such as swamp coolers, wash-down food processing machinery, and other product applications that endure water, chemicals or condensation.
Brass is also aesthetically pleasing without the use of paint or coatings. Despite a higher initial cost, brass may be lower in costs when plating, coating or other finishing services are avoided. Plating and coating processes not only increase the cost, but they add additional lead-time and may raise transportation expenses as well.
Purchasing a brass component allows the customer to ship directly and install quickly, without waiting for any finishing processes. Brass can offer better protection than a plating alternative under highly corrosive conditions and high-wear applications, such as lazy susan bearings.
Triangle also offers standard and custom stamped components in galvanized steel, cold rolled or hot rolled steel, aluminum, high-strength steel or stainless steel.
