Processing Technologies of Amorphous Alloys at Heraeus Amloy

Two manufacturing processes under one roof: Heraeus AMLOY is the only manufacturer globally offering amorphous metal processing through both injection molding and 3D printing. Whether it's miniaturization, weight reduction, or tight tolerance manufacturing, every application has unique requirements. To effectively meet the demands of your project, we provide tailored processing of our amorphous alloys through both injection molding and additive manufacturing to suit your individual needs.

IMTEC - Processing of Amorphous Metals by Injection Molding

In the injection molding process, the alloys are inductively melted under vacuum and injected in the liquid state into a mold where they solidify amorphously. The finished components are thus produced in less than two minutes.

Ideally suited for:

  • High quantities
  • Manufacturing within tight tolerances


  • Automated production process (24/7 possible)
  • Very good surface quality
  • Alternative to machining or MIM (Metal Injection Molding)

AMTEC - Additive Manufacturing of Amorphous Metals

The high purity amorphous powders from Heraeus AMLOY are specially optimized for additive manufacturing. Even conventional 3D printers process them into larger components with complex geometries. Due to their particularly high strength, components can be modified in terms of design, e.g. in bionic structures.

Ideally suited for:

  • Production of small to medium quantities
  • Complex geometries and large component dimensions


  • Use of the material properties of amorphous metals or weight-optimized design
  • Heraeus AMLOY’s unique process competence through in-house material production and printing process development
