Fabrication of amorphous metals by additive manufacturing


Amorphous metals are considered a material of the future due to their high strength, good corrosion resistance and high elasticity. However, metallic glasses are not yet widely circulated, because the necessary high cooling rate can only produce small parts. Additive manufacturing processes such as electron beam melting (EBM) or fused deposition modelling (FDM) might be able to overcome this limit. The aim of this project os the identification and optimization of process parameters of those techniques in order to manufacture bulk metallic glasses based on a zirconium alloy.
