We Are Open For Business

Logo_Elcon-Precision-LLC_150x76

Elcon Precision continues to monitor the highly fluid situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic in the Bay Area and all of North America. The health, safety, and well-being of our customers, employees, suppliers, and local communities are our top priority. As we navigate this rapidly changing situation, please be aware that Elcon Precision is working hard and taking extra precautions to maintain a stable business environment while we remain open for business through these uncertain circumstances.

The top management of Elcon, in conjunction with our owner group, is closely following the situation, defining internal protocols and assisting in our ability to respond quickly to the rapidly changing conditions. To help contain and prevent the spread of the virus we have restricted business travel for all of our personnel for at least the next two weeks. There is a good possibility this could be extended, but inside and outside sales people all remain available and accessible via phone, email and web meetings. Our customer service department remains open (remotely in some cases) during regular business hours and can be reached at 408 292-7800 or sales@elconprecision.com.

In addition to the work from home policy for all personnel that are not needed at the plant, we have daily communication with our employees and are sharing and reinforcing best practices for the health and safety of everyone. Our manufacturing staff is following strict hygiene and safety protocols and we are committed to stopping the spread of the virus.  We are limiting visitors to our facility to only those who are necessary for our operations, namely shipping, receiving and critical suppliers.  All internal meetings are held in the largest rooms possible to maintain social distancing.

In terms of our operations, we will continue to manufacture during our normal business hours, with no diminution of quality. Shipments will remain as scheduled and delivery of your Elcon products can be expected as usual.  We have experienced some supply disruptions and we are looking at all options to mitigate their effect on production.  These include stressing the importance of maintaining the supply chain to our most critical suppliers, looking for alternate suppliers within the US in areas less impacted than our region and scheduling production to make the best use of our inventory.

During this difficult time, Elcon Precision is working hard to provide you products in the safest and most reliable manner possible to help keep your business intact. We will keep you informed of any significant changes that affect your company.

We thank you for your support and understanding during this rapidly changing situation.

International Vacuum Electronics Conference (IVEC)

Elcon will be exhibiting and presenting a technical paper at IEEE-IVEC in Monterey, California, October 26-29, 2020.

Our technical paper will discuss the challenges of optical CMM characterization of key features on etched TWT cathode grids. It will focus on spherical radius determination and discuss overall manufacturing capabilities now that optical CMMs have replaced older inspection methods used to verify grid dimensional attributes.

You’ll be able to see our custom photochemically machined parts and brazed ceramic to metal assemblies made using our atmospheric and vacuum furnaces. Photochemical machining materials we process include refractory materials such as molybdenum, tungsten, and titanium as well as standard metals such as copper, gold, beryllium, stainless steel, Inconel and others. Ceramic materials we process include alumina, beryllia, aluminum nitride, zirconia, and others.

We are ISO 9001:2015, AS9100D and ITAR certified.

Come visit us at Booth #1.

Space Tech Expo 2020

Elcon will be exhibiting and presenting a technical paper at Space Tech Expo in Long Beach, California, August 10-12, 2020.

Our technical paper will discuss the key manufacturing elements for constructing a durable electronic thrust system using ceramics, metallization, photochemical machining, and brazing. We will also touch on our use of non-contact inspection metrology that is used to verify dimensions without contamination of the assembly.

View first hand our custom metal parts with special emphasis on our proprietary 3-D electron grid technology integrated into ceramic assemblies. Through photochemical machining, we are able to etch materials refractory materials such as Molybdenum, Tungsten, Hafnium, and Titanium as well as standard metals such as copper, gold, beryllium, stainless steel, Inconel and others. These will be exact to print and delivered quickly along with key mission paperwork.

This show is dedicated to building the bridge between commercial space, national security, exploration, and science. Elcon Precision can help make your ideas take off.

Come visit us at Booth #2052.

Conflict Minerals Policy, October 2013

This document contains Elcon Precision LLC’s statement regarding the content of Conflict Minerals in our products.
There has been increased awareness of violence and human rights violations in the mining of certain minerals from a location described as the “Conflict Region”, which is situated in the eastern portion of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries. In August of 2012 The SEC adopted a new rule to require companies to publically disclose their use of conflict minerals.

The new reporting requirements reflect Congressional concern that revenues obtained from mining and transport of “Conflict Minerals” finance the ongoing conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries and the resulting humanitarian crisis. The legislation requires SEC-registered companies to report annually to the SEC on (a) their worldwide use of “Conflict Minerals” in products they manufacture or contract to manufacture, and (b) the cooperation of their supply chains in identifying the use of “Conflict Minerals”; identifying the country of origin for any tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold; and determining whether “Conflict Minerals” from the DRC region are “conflict free”

The Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) have requested that companies undertake reasonable due diligence with their supply chain to assure that specified metals are not being sourced from mines in the Conflict Region, which is controlled by non-government military groups, or unlawful military factions.

Elcon Precision LLC is not a publically traded company and doesn’t need to file reports with the SEC pursuant to Exchange Action Sections 13(a) or 15(d), we support these actions and have obtained, or are in the process of obtaining, information from our current metal suppliers concerning the origin of the metals that are used in the manufacture of our products. Based upon information provided by our suppliers, we do not knowingly use metals derived from the
Conflict Region.

Suppliers are providing written evidence of due diligence documenting that raw materials used to produce gold and tungsten, supplied to or used in the manufacture of our products, do not originate from mining or smelting operations in the Conflict Region. To learn more about the U.S. Legislation and “Conflict Minerals”,” please consult the SEC website: http://www.sec.gov/news/press/2010/2010-245.htm.
