METamorph is a technological project and future start-up. The project centres on a radical new technology/production process that enables the production of amorphous metal alloys and associated micro-components.
The manufacture of complex metallic micro-components with a volume smaller than 30mm3 has long presented challenges to Industry. METAmorph’s direct-injection process leverages the properties of amorphous metals in order to mold precision engineered micro components that can not only be produced in smaller sizes than other equivalent processes, but offer exceptional levels of durability and made-to-measure surface finishes.
METAmorph’s process displays similarities with plastic micro-injection processes but instead uses amorphous metals. Amorphous metals have a different atomic structure to conventional metals, facilitating their high-temperature forming. The use of amorphous metals offers superior mechanical and functional properties compared with conventional metals.
The result is a process that gives Industry the best of both worlds: combining the benefits of direct-injection moulding with the high-performance characteristics of advanced amorphous materials:
-Bespoke surface finish (textured to polished mirror finishes)
-Repeatability: high-levels of geometric homogenity in batch productiion
-No post-production finishing required
-Material characteristics: high-levels of hardness, mechanical strength and wear resistance amongst others
The technology is suited to a vast array of applications including, but not limited to, the following:
-Manufacture of spectacles,
-Medical applications (medical devices),
-Luxury items (jewelry etc)
-Computer assisted surgery, surgical tools
