October 14, 2014, Rancho Santa Margarita, California – Liquidmetal Technologies held its first ever open house at the recently opened Liquidmetal Manufacturing Center of Excellence. Prospective customers from throughout the country flew in to experience the new facility, see the latest advancements in technology, and meet the Liquidmetal team in person.
Both Liquidmetal Technologies’ partners, ENGEL and Materion, attended the event along with a Liquidmetal Certified Mold Supplier, Mold Craft. Each company presented hourly on their technology offering and their relationship with Liquidmetal Technologies. Attendees were able to ask questions and see the Liquidmetal technology up close and personal. Attendees were introduced to the entire production process of a Liquidmetal part; starting from the raw material production from Materion, to mold making with Mold Craft, and finally the injection molding process with ENGEL. Liquidmetal engineers demonstrated the molding of a Liquidmetal part with the ENGEL e-motion machine throughout the day and provided the finished parts to customers.
Having ENGEL, Materion, and Mold Craft together at the same time allowed potential customers to see each of the important relationships working together to deliver an effective Liquidmetal production process. Liquidmetal Technologies wants to foster an accessible and collaborative relationship with our customers and partners. This event helped the Liquidmetal team take a giant step forward in demonstrating the collaborative end-to-end production process.
“The time was well spent and I’m more confident than ever in the technology and infrastructure that makes commercial adoption viable,” said an open house guest.
Due to the success of this event, and an overwhelmingly positive response from attendees, Liquidmetal Technologies plans to host similar events in the future to keep customers and licensees current on the latest technological advancements.
