Recently a Yale University research group has blow moulded a recently developed alloy of bulk metal glasses (BMG). By blow moulding the BMGs, the team was able to perform shaping, joining and finishing in one step that took less than a minute.
BMGs which have superior mechanical properties, can, apparently, be blow moulded like plastics. The key to the enhanced processability of BMG formers is their amenability to thermoplastic forming. This allows complex BMG structures, some of which cannot be produced using any other metal process, to be shaped precisely.
