Heraeus AMLOY receives German Innovation Award for its amorphous alloys

May 29, 2020

The German Design Council has awarded Heraeus AMLOY, a division of Heraeus, Hanau, Germany, a gold German Innovation Award in the category of Materials & Surfaces, Excellence in Business to Business, for its amorphous alloys. 

Amorphous metals, also called bulk metallic glasses, are frozen metallic melts, where due to the shock freezing of the melt, the individual atoms have no opportunity to form an ordered metal lattice. The resulting material is flexible and, at the same time, extremely stable, corrosion and abrasion resistant and biocompatible.

This unique combination of properties is said to open up exciting possibilities for a wide range of industries such as aviation, automotive, medicine and many others, creating a completely new market. Heraeus AMLOY processes amorphous alloys by both metal Additive Manufacturing and Metal Injection Moulding to near-net shape components on an industrial scale.

“The special properties of amorphous metals offer great potential for innovations in a variety of industries,” explained Jürgen Wachter, Head of Heraeus AMLOY. 

The German Design Council was founded by the German Bundestag and is sponsored by German industry. Since 1953, its competitions have honoured design, brand and innovation achievements. The German Innovation Award will be presented for the third time this year.
