Bells have been cast for many centuries; the metal used is termed "bell metal", a bronze consisting of 80% copper and 20% tin.
In this case, the bell is mounted on a yoke which is fitted with sealed ball bearing; a wheel allows swinging the bell by means of a rope, or the chain of an electric swinging ringer.
Bells for chimes or carillons are mounted in a stationary manner from steel framing, and struck by means of internal clappers operated through a simple action consisting of levers and stainless steel rod connections from a manual keyboard or chime stand.

 Carillon Bells   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Carillon bells are cast from bell bronze, an alloy composed of approximately 78 % copper and 22% tin, which is heated in a furnace to above 2,000 degrees F, until it melts and combines into a homogenous liquid.
The molten metal is then poured into a mold made up of a core, which is the shape of the inside section of the bell, and a cope, which is the shape of the outside of the bell.
A bell's greatest enemies are fire, which can destroy the bell, and air pollution, which dissolves the bell metal thus affecting the tuning.

It is made of traditional bronze bell metal (approximately 80 percent pure copper and 20 percent tin), the result of the molten metal being poured into a sand mold and allowed to harden by cooling.
The tuned bell casting is clamped between the handguard and the yoke-handle coupler, and is separated from them by means of lockwashers.
After the bell casting has finally been tuned and the bell completely assembled, but before the main assembly screw in the handle has been tightened to lock the tuned casting into a fixed relationship with the handle and clapper mechanism, the point of best response is selected.
