New Blog Invites Expert Discussion About How Liquidmetal Alloy is Redefining Precision Parts Manufacturing for Medical Science, Aerospace, Sporting Goods and Other Industries
RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- A new blog has been started by Liquidmetal® Technologies Inc. (LTI) (OTCQB: LQMT), the leading developer of amorphous alloys and composites, which invites expert discussion of how its patented Liquidmetal alloy is redefining the world of precision parts manufacturing for range of major industries.
The site features articles published by industry professionals covering the numerous applications and advantages of the unique amorphous alloy. This includes articles authored by Dr. Joe Stevick, a PhD. in Clinical Neuroscience with a Masters degree in Physics from Cambridge University, who has significant experience designing medical imaging hardware and is the senior physicist at LTI.
Stevick discusses applications of Liquidmetal alloys in the medical field, including non-magnetic metal applications allowing complete MRI scan compatibility. He asserts this potential application could be particularly useful during MRI-assisted surgeries.
Stevick notes that Liquidmetal alloys are not only non-magnetic and resistant to corrosion, but also harder and stronger than titanium, which is beneficial for certain surgical devices like scalpels, as well as other tools like wrenches, screwdrivers, wheelchairs, and medical implants.
The blog also illustrates Liquidmetal alloys can be formed into complex parts in a process similar to plastics injection molding, but without typical metal molding defects, like pitting, and to such precise and exacting tolerances that minimal secondary processing is required, if any at all. The result is an accurate, intricate part with a shiny lustrous finish that comes directly from the mold.
The blog also expands upon the pure energy properties of the Liquidmetal alloys. Due to its amorphous structure, Liquidmetal alloy is able to avoid energy loss while retaining net size and shape, making it ideal for sporting goods and a wide range of industrial applications.
