Materion - Beryllium

Today we visited Materion, a multinational company specializing in high performance engineered materials, specifically with beryllium.  Beryllium is used industrially in three forms: as a pure metal, as beryllium oxide, and most commonly, as an alloy with copper, aluminum, magnesium, or nickel.  The products Materion produces are used in the telecommunications, computer, automotive electronics, industrial components, aerospace, defense, and appliance industries. 

Our trainees were divided into 5 groups, each seeing a different aspect of the processes at Materion.  Some saw how they created rod and tubes, and others how they made coils of very thin beryllium alloys.   This visit allowed our trainees to wear PPE, including powered air purifying respirators.

We thank Mike Berakis, the industrial hygienist, and the entire Elmore facility staff for their hospitality, and providing such an incredible learning opportunity for our trainees.

It was great meeting everyone this year. Our team here at Materion gets a boost when we our program is recognized as a leading OHS model. Your comments help us improve and give us the motivation to keep pushing the boundary of industrial hygiene. I appreciate what your doing to improve the EHS aspects in your current or future organizations.

Looking forward to the next class in two years!!
