Copper & Copper Alloys
Elcon Precision etches multiple alloys of copper including OFC, beryllium copper (BeCu), brass and bronze. Copper is an excellent electrical and thermal conductor suitable for microwave device components and flat springs. Common uses for copper include electronic interference shielding for implants, power busbars, RF shielding, conductor elements, and heat sinks. Elcon can plate copper with nickel, gold, or silver to help improve electrical conductivity and/or the component's corrosion resistance.
Beryllium copper is one of the most commonly requested copper alloys. BeCU is often used as spring material for its strength, elasticity, and shape retention.
We etch up to 0.025” thick sheets that range up to 22x12 inches. Thicker sheets up to 2mm can be fabricated using a combination of high-speed CNC machining and photo etching. Tolerances of ±.0005 inches can be achieved in many applications.
