Fabrication Techniques of Beryllium Metal Removal 670803

Familiarity with beryllium metal machining and handling characteristics places the material in favorable perspective with conventional materials. The stability, coefficient of expansion, and thermal conductivity of beryllium are very favorable to achieving and maintaining size control. Extensive use in the aerospace industry has assisted in development of allied processes that further enhance the achievements in fabrication techniques.
This paper shows the evolution of fabrication considerations from procurement through completion of parts. Interim processes and surface treatments will be discussed, featuring some applications.
