What is beryllium copper used for?

First what’s the C17200 beryllium copper? 

C17200 beryllium copper is known as Alloy 25 and is the most commonly utilized beryllium copper alloy and is notable for exhibiting the highest strength and hardness compared to commercial copper alloys. Its strength and hardness is similar to that of steel. C17200 copper's ultimate tensile and Rockwell hardness properties in a peak aged condition are in the 200 ksi range and RC 45 respectively (electrical conductivity 22% IACS minimum).

Second what are the applications of C17200 Beryllium Copper?
Beryllium copper and its variety of alloys are utilized in very specific and often tailor-made applications such as oilfield tools, aerospace landing gears, robotic welding, and mold making applications. Additional non-magnetic properties make it ideal for down-hole wire line tools.

Third how can we make C17200 beryllium copper products?
Usually we can use CNC Machining to make beryllium copper products. It is a computerized manufacturing process in which pre-programmed software and code controls the movement of production equipment. CNC machining controls a range of complex machinery, such as grinders, lathes, and turning mills, all of which are used to cut, shape, and create different parts and prototypes. Because Copper beryllium is a ductile metal that machines easily, generally producing large chips and turnings. Processes that generate large particles are usually performed in an open shop environment with no special ventilation or housekeeping practices required.
Once, we used this kind of material in a project. We processed it with corresponding equipment and processing 

methods according to the characteristics of the material. An American customer asked us to produce a high 

precision CNC Machining product named BP-0**** and made of C17200 BERYLLIUM COPPER. According to 

the high hardness of the material, we use a precision lathe to process with a high-hardness tungsten steel tool. 

Then, in order to improve the accuracy of the product and reduce the error, we use cylindrical grinding machine 

equipment for finishing. The product quality is further improved and finally recognized by customers. It took us 

six days to produce the product. And another six days later, the customer received the products we sent to him 

from China. Then the customer replied,"I have received the product and verified the dimensions. I am very happy 

with the result. I will be sending you Higher Volume in the Future, Nice work!" and "ACME did a great job with my 

tight-precision parts. I will be ordering from them again." We are also happy that our work has been recognized 

and we will continue to work hard.
