Heraeus AMLOY Technology Day

Heraeus AMLOY Technology Day 2019

A warm welcome to the Heraeus AMLOY Technology Day 2019! We are pleased that you would like to join us and our partner ENGEL in discovering the world of amorphous metals and their processing solutions. For this we open our doors.

  • on November 13, 2019
  • from 9.30 am to 3.30 pm
  • on the Heraeus campus in Hanau
  • Venue: Heraeus Holding GmbH l Heraeusstrasse 12-14 l 63450 Hanau

Listen to our expert presentations and experience the live demonstration of our ENGEL injection molding machine designed to manufacture amorphous components at industrial scale. You will also get insights in our processes and materials in detail and will have the opportunity to meet our experts face to face.

Our event is already fully booked. A registration is no longer possible.

What you can expect at the Heraeus AMLOY Technology Day 2019?

We filled the agenda with interesting presentations and a live demonstration in our production floor. Please have a look at the agenda:

Professor Ralf Busch, expert in the field of amorphous metals, will present the technological innovations on Bulk metallic glasses.

Bulk metallic glass – a new engineering material

In the past 25 years metallic glasses have evolved into a serious engineering material. These new bulk metallic glasses can be cast into parts of up to one centimeter thickness. They combine high strength and elasticity with an easy processability and formability that is comparable to polymers or oxide glasses. This talk provides a short introduction into science and technology of bulk metallic glasses.

About Professor Ralf Busch

Ralf Busch is a German physicist with focus on Materials Science. His area of expertise is the research on bulk metallic glasses.

Ralf Busch started to study physics in 1983 at the University of Goettingen in Germany. In 1992, he received his PhD in Goettingen at the Institute of Metalphysics. In 1993, he went to the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, CA (USA) as a Feodor-Lynen-fellow of the Alexander-von-Humboldt foundation. There he started to work on bulk metallic glasses. In 1999, he became Assistant Professor for Materials Science in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Oregon State University. There he became Associate Professor with tenure in 2004. In 2005, he received a Chair Professorship for metallic materials at Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany.
