Osprey Metals becomes Sandvik Osprey

Sandvik Coromant UK : 13 December, 2004  (Company News)
To reinforce its commitment to activities in the field of controlled expansion alloys, Sandvik Materials Technology has recently changed the name of its subsidiary Osprey Metals to 'Sandvik Osprey'. Originally formed in 1974, Osprey Metals has been a member of the Sandvik Group for almost 25 years.
Says Nigel Haworth, a Sandvik Ltd and Sandvik Osprey Director, 'The Osprey Controlled Expansion (CE) Alloys fit extremely well into the Sandvik Materials Technology philosophy of promoting materials with high demands on properties and where the associated development of products requires close cooperation with key customers.'

Sandvik Osprey sells its range of ultra-lightweight, silicon-aluminium, controlled expansion alloys in the form of machined and electroplated carriers, housings, packages, including hermetic packages, and structural components. For many applications, the alloys offer a lower cost option to materials such as Cu/W, Cu/Mo, AlSiC or Be alloys. At the same time, they provide extremely attractive properties in terms of thermal conductivity, specific stiffness and density compared, for example, to alloys such as titanium or Kovar.

Applications for which CE Alloys are currently being used or qualified include:- microwave housings for ground-based/airborne radar, aircraft and satellite systems; optical packages for use in imaging systems; guide bars on printed circuit boards for use in embedded computer products; carrier plates for advanced sensor devices; backing plates for cladding to conventional circuit board materials; lightweight, structural, stiff components for use in rapidly moving parts, eg for use in anti-missile, missile defence systems or linear motors in the semi-conductor processing industry; assembly fixtures for use in the fabrication of microprocessors.

Sandvik Osprey is part of Sandvik Materials Technology, one of three business areas within the Sandvik Group - a high-technology engineering group with advanced products and world-leading positions in selected areas such as tools for metal working, machinery and tools for rock excavation and special alloys. The Group has 37,000 employees in 130 countries, with annual sales of approximately 6 billion USD. SMT has a global presence and is a leading multinational, high technology manufacturer, offering speciality stainless steels, medical alloys and other advanced alloys and products.
