A Case for Liquidmetal


When developing a new design, designers of metal components must always consider the manufacturing methods available to them. At the same time, they must consider the geometric possibilities and material characteristic needs for the particular functional and performance requirements of the application they are designed for. This is not always a simple task.

Having excellent dimensional control provides many advantages to the metal part designer. Those advantages include: greater design flexibility, better fit between assembled components, more precise part performance, improved overall product performance, ability to insert mold reliably for downstream conjoining of materials, and reduced stack-up tolerances among parts in an assembly.
