Liquidmetal® Technologies Orders First Die Cast Machine

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Liquidmetal® Technologies, Inc. (LQMT), announced today that it has ordered its first amorphous metal molding machine from its Licensee, Eontec Co., Ltd. The machine design is based on a die casting platform and is complementary to the injection molding machine developed with Engel. Delivery of the machine is expected in March 2017.

Paul Hauck, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, said: “The machine technology that we are purchasing from Eontec will allow the manufacture of larger parts, up to 300 grams, and will allow us to offer lower cost parts made possible with larger higher-cavitation molds. The machine capabilities from both Eontec and Engel are expected to significantly broaden the number of possible applications across multiple markets. In parallel to this order, our sales team is reviewing past customer opportunities for candidate parts that could be served with the larger capacity machine.”
