Ultra Precision Machining of Beryllium, Aluminum Beryllium, and other Exotic Metals

Why Beryllium?

  • One of the lightest metals on the planet
  • High Termal Conductivity
  • Corrosion-Resistant
  • Excellent Strength-to-Weight Ratio
  • Excellent Stiffness-to-Weight Ratio
  • Extremely Low CTE
Beryllium

Why Aluminum Beryllium?

Aluminum Beryllium (or AlBeMet®) is a low-cost alternative with 40-62% Beryllium. Such a composite combines the machinability of Aluminum with the key properties of Beryllium
