Beryllium Copper Alloys by IBC Advanced Alloys



The high conductivity beryllium copper rod (C17510, C17500) is utilized to produce resistance welding equipment components (shanks, adaptors, holders, etc.).

Beryllium copper rod, plate and bar are specified for welder dies, welding wheels, and associated resistance welding components. Weld gun robots on automotive assembly lines make millions of individual welds utilizing sand cast beryllium copper C17510 weld gun arms (one of the primary structural components of the weld gun arm assembly on the robot). Beryllium copper is the material of choice for these applications because of its excellent elevated temperature fatigue strength combined with high strength/high hardness and electrical/thermal conductivity properties.
