Below is a press release from IBC Advanced Alloys Corp., which is headquartered in Wilmington:
WILMINGTON, MA — IBC Advanced Alloys Corp., a leading beryllium and copper advanced alloys company, is pleased to announce that it is now supplying beryllium-aluminum (“BeAl”) alloy components under contract to L3Harris Technologies, for use in an undisclosed aerospace application.
IBC’s work in supplying BeAl components to L3Harris is in the early stages, and the Company expects that it could lead to significant and material amounts of sales of IBC products in the future.
IBC’s Engineered Materials Division produces custom-designed, investment cast beryllium-aluminum (“BeAl”) alloy components at its facility in Wilmington, Mass., for a variety of customers in the defense, aerospace, and commercial sectors. IBC’s ability to manufacture near-net-shape BeAl products from its proprietary investment casting technology allows it to make these products faster, more efficiently, less expensively, and with less produced waste than its competition. In national defense applications, this has helped to save U.S. tax dollars in the procurement of defense systems that require BeAl components.
“IBC’s investment cast beryllium-aluminum components offer a powerful set of unique characteristics that help our customers meet very demanding performance requirements in highly challenging operational environments,” said Mark Doelling, President of IBC’s Engineered Materials Division. “We are pleased to be able to supply L3Harris with the specialized beryllium-aluminum alloy components it needs.”
