The unique properties and molding technology of Liquidmetal allows designers to replace existing manufacturing processes for current parts and opens the doors to new possibilities for new designs.
Leverage the full benefits of Liquidmetal
With the contract manufacturing from Liquidmetal Technologies, you can leverage the full benefits of amorphous metals. Reduce part count and utilize a material with superior mechanical properties. We can help develop your design for our molding process. Below are a few examples.
The high elasticity of Liquidmetal is great for custom springs and locking mechanisms. You can mold your part to get a plastic-like geometry and elasticity, but the strength and hardness of steel.
With Liquidmetal, you can mold the entire gear-form in one step. No machining or grinding is required to finish the geometry of the gear teeth. Exceptional precision is achieved due to the near zero shrinkage of Liquidmetal during the molding process, and the surface finish out of the mold results is a smooth operation of a geartrain. Liquidmetal is also naturally hard without heat-treating, which provides a durable tooth to tooth interface.
Brackets, Hinges, and Linkages
Trying to connect components together within an assembly can drive the need for some very interesting and complex geometries. Liquidmetal gives you design options you didn’t have before with a high strength alloy. You will also benefit from the precision of the molding process to get a consistent and accurate fit-up from part to part.
