DELIVERING INDUSTRY LEADING BERYLLIUM PRESSING SERVICES

Materion is an industry leader in beryllium pressing services. As the world’s primary manufacturer of beryllium metal, we are constantly working towards improvements in the quality and dependability of our materials. We are committed to working with our customers to support and develop designs that are cost efficient and meet the critical requirements of their applications. Our pressed beryllium is engineered for outstanding performance in a precise range of structural, instrument, optical and nuclear applications.

A PIONEER IN BERYLLIUM PRESSING TECHNOLOGY

Materion has pioneered methods used to make high quality beryllium powder and subsequent consolidation, which include:

  • Cold Isostatic Pressing – used for parts with more complex geometry, CIP preforms blanks close to net shape directly from beryllium powders and produces the desired blank shape with excellent definition of detail

  • Hot Isostatic Pressing – used for parts having simple shapes, HIP consolidates beryllium powders in sealed, vacuum-degassed containers to nearly 100% density, resulting in a blank that is the same shape as the container

  • Vacuum Hot Pressing – the most commonly used beryllium pressing technique, VHP results in a uniform, fully-dense fine-grained beryllium; through VHP, it is possible to produce a variety of beryllium grades with differing characteristics for many divergent applications
