Liquidmetal Technologies (OTCQB: LQMT), based just south of Los Angeles in Rancho Santa Margarita, California, is using technology discovered by researchers at the California Institute of Technology to revolutionize the production and properties of precision parts for medical, military, consumer, industrial, and other applications. It’s a technology that offers important economic advantages in terms of precision, strength, and production, giving designers access to creative options that are unavailable with traditional approaches.
The key is amorphous alloy technology, which results in materials able to retain a random atomic structure as a solid, as opposed to the crystalline atomic structure found in ordinary metals and alloys. Liquidmetal Technologies is the first company to offer such amorphous alloys at full commercial levels, and it is considered a leading developer of amorphous alloys, holding more than 70 associated U.S. patents.
It’s a technology that’s changing the way new products are being designed, allowing complex, high-precision parts and titanium-grade strength with a manufacturing process that provides high production rates without sacrificing part-to-part consistency. An assembly of traditionally machined parts can be replaced with a well-designed part that is substantially thinner than conventional metal. In the words of the company: “Utilizing this revolutionary process, product development managers and engineers have been able to overcome many manufacturing obstacles. The molding process and a highly unique combination of properties allow outside the box thinking relative to traditional metal forming processes when designing parts.”
To leverage its considerable intellectual portfolio, Liquidmetal Technologies uses strategic partnerships with various companies around the world through a Certified Liquidmetal Partners (CLP) program that ensures the company’s unique requirements are being met. Involvement in the partnership program involves rigorous testing and certification for each member, all leading to a global network of companies advancing the commercialization of amorphous alloy technology. The company also works with a number of suppliers and other commercial companies, as well as government agencies.
The potential of the application over a range of industries has not gone unnoticed by investors, and, on October 27, 2016, Liquidmetal Technologies completed a $63.4 million equity raise (http://nnw.fm/xV6T6) in conjunction with Liquidmetal Technology Limited, a Hong Kong company owned by Professor Lugee Li.
