This article briefly describes the production of beryllium powder and beryllium/beryllium oxide metal-matrix powder. It discusses fully dense consolidation methods: vacuum hot pressing, hot isostatic pressing, and cold isostatic pressing. Secondary fabrication operations of beryllium and aluminum-beryllium alloys such as extrusion, rolling, welding, joining, and machining are discussed. The article discusses quality control and provides information on the structural, optical, and high-purity grades of beryllium.
