Side-by-Side Comparison Confirms Excel’s Exceptional Quality and Value

After a recent scientific comparison between an Excel bronze bushing and one purchased from a competitor, Excel Foundry & Machine is without a doubt, the best choice for replacement components!

When a customer requested evidence that proved our bronze bushings were superior to our competitors’, we graciously accepted the challenge. Utilizing a blind product selection method, a bushing was purchased from a competitor, just like any mining equipment customer would do. Then another bushing was randomly selected from Excel’s inventory, using the same process as a typical sales order.

The investigation focused on packaging, workmanship, lock-in pockets, machining quality, surface finish analysis, product availability, and support. In addition, an independent laboratory performed unbiased mechanical testing on both bushings.

Most notably, the Excel bushing showed significantly higher strength and ductility (a solid material’s ability to deform under tensile stress; this is often characterized by the material’s ability to be stretched) during mechanical testing. The finer lead distribution within the Excel bushing also provided better lubricity (the measure of the reduction in friction and or wear by a lubricant) and protection against burn-up. In fact, Excel’s bushing outperformed the competitor’s bushing in every single area.

This is another example of Excel’s unsurpassed reliability and superior product performance. Side-by-side findings of the bronze bushing comparison can be found in the chart below.
