Beryllium Copper Alloys by IBC Advanced Alloys


Injection Molding

The use of C17200 beryllium copper alloys in mold cores and cavities has been evaluated for effectiveness in meeting material requirements and minimizing per part cost. The alloys have been compared to tool steels and as well as aluminum alloys. It has been found that beryllium copper alloys are capable of producing significant per part cost reductions via their excellent thermal characteristics which allow for decreased cycle times, reducing part overhead, while maintaining good hardness, limiting the need for mold repair and refurbishment.
