IBC and NioCorp Complete Initial Casting Campaign for Aluminum-Scandium Alloys

IBC and NioCorp announce success in manufacturing aluminum-scandium alloy ingots.  The ingots, representing a range of scandium content, will now undergo chemical analysis and other metallurgical testing to confirm the microstructure and performance of the alloys.  This testing is the basis for commercializing Aluminum-Scandium alloys.

IBC Releases Fiscal Q1 Financial Results

Sales increased 36% in the quarter as compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2016, with Engineering Materials division sales expanding by 142%. Both operating divisions swung to positive gross margins from negative gross margins in the year-ago period.

IBC’s Role in Chip Making

A rapidly growing segment of IBC’s business is the production of precision cast beryllium-aluminum components used by the semiconductor equipment manufacturing industry to produce parts of IPhones and other consumer electronics.

The IBC Edge: Beralcast Alloys

One technology innovation that sets IBC apart from the rest is its ability to precision cast ultra-stiff and ultra-lightweight parts made from beryllium and aluminum in a highly innovative material called Beralcast®.

Beralcast For Raytheon’s ATFLIR System

IBC produces a beryllium-aluminum cast component for use in Raytheon’s Advanced Targeting Forward Looking Infrared (ATFLIR) system, currently in use on U.S. Navy F/A-18 fighter jets.

IBC’s Beralcast Alloy is Flying on the F-35

IBC produces a crucial advanced beryllium-aluminum alloy component for the F-35 Lightning II, under a contract with Lockheed Martin, which is part of the plane’s highly advanced Electro-Optical Targeting System (EOTS). Made with IBC’s high performance Beralcast® beryllium-aluminum precision cast alloy, this IBC part is now flying on the F-35.
