The processing of bulk metallic glasses (amorphous metals) of many different composition relies on theoretical and experimental knowledges of high value at the lab. We can be provided with raw metallic elements of very high purity and prepare the primary alloys (precise compositions) with either a cold crucible device (left) or directly in the home-made arc-melter (middle). Subsequently, bulk metallic glasses of simple shapes (cylindres, plates, cones) can be produced by suction casting in the arc-melter. More recently, a new injection casting process was developed leading to the creation of the VULKAM start-up in order to produce complex net-shaped micro-parts for various industrial applications (right).
