Like any manufacturing process, leveraging the full benefits of MIM or amorphous metals is achieved by developing application designs for the specific process. Both processes offer advantages, like component reduction or precision, to the automotive market. Below are a few examples.

Potential applications

Each featuring a key attribute

Gears
Dimensional precision and consistency
Gears require high levels of manufacturing consistency because they are often fitting together in one large assembly. Liquidmetal’s ability to form parts with consistency down to ±0.08%, makes it a powerful alternative to CNC machining operations.

Guitar bridge pins
Material
Liquidmetal has been proven to perform acoustically superior to traditional plastic bridge pins in a recent test. The Liquidmetal pins produced an average increase of 3.6 dB across all six guitar strings, and you can read more about it here.

Guitar saddles
Material
In a recent test, Liquidmetal saddles were put through a series of tests compared to bone and Tusq saddles. The Liquidmetal saddle produced amplitude 2-7 dB higher than the other saddles.

Dental
Precision complex shapes
Dental equipment requires small, precise components with the highest strength and durability possible. These shapes are often machined for this reason, but with molding processes, these geometries can be formed with the same, if not tighter, tolerances – and fewer parts.
