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 elasticity and strength, to the sporting equipment market. Below are a few examples.

Potential applications

Each featuring a key attribute

Firearms: Triggers, Sears, and more...
Complex shapes
The goal is a lighter, more consistent, accurate, durable, and customizable gun. The result is often manufacturing trade-offs to meet customer demands. Amorphous metal and MIM meet many of these trade-off requirements when molded – no secondary operations necessary.

Knives and tools
Strength, consistency
Our team prides itself on improving customer value surrounding every application. This can often mean reducing component count due to a complex geometry molding capability or gaining necessary material properties without post-molding operations. These factors become especially relevant when manufacturing knives or tools.

SCUBA equipment
Corrosion resistance
SCUBA equipment manufacturers face a limited number of alloys they can manufacture with, as well as processes that meet the demands of their product. The environment, including seawater, wind, rain, and snow take a toll on these components. Amorphous metal performs at the highest level in every test.

Outdoor recreation
Corrosion resistance
Any product designed to test the elements of the outdoors should be designed to last, and be pushed to its limit. Amorphous metal’s long lasting durability, corrosion resistance, and ability to mold complex shapes makes it a great candidate for many products. Crystalline MIM components offer part consolidation, reduced cost, and material flexibility.
