Processing of Amorphous Metals

Unique worldwide - processing amorphous metals by injection molding and 3D printing

Two manufacturing processes under one roof: Heraeus AMLOY is the only manufacturer in the world that offers processing of amorphous metals using both injection molding and 3D printing.

Whether miniaturization, weight reduction, or manufacturing within tight tolerances: Every application has individual requirements. In order to optimally support these requirements in your project, we offer the processing of our amorphous alloys in both injection molding and additive manufacturing. Individually tailored to your needs.

Learn more about the advantages and differences of processing amorphous metals by injection molding and 3D printing.

Injection Molding

Injection Molding

In the injection molding process, the alloys are inductively melted under vacuum and injected in the liquid state into a mold where they solidify amorphously. The finished components are thus produced in less than two minutes.

Ideally suited for:

  • High quantities
  • Manufacturing within tight tolerances

Advantages:

  • Automated production process (24/7 possible)
  • Very good surface quality
  • Alternative to machining or MIM (Metal Injection Molding)

Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing

The high purity amorphous powders from Heraeus AMLOY are specially optimized for additive manufacturing. Even conventional 3D printers process them into larger components with complex geometries. Due to their particularly high strength, components can be modified in terms of design, e.g. in bionic structures.

Ideally suited for:

  • Production of small to medium quantities
  • Complex geometries and large component dimensions

Advantages:

Use of the material properties of amorphous metals for weight-optimized design
