Production of metal glass powder through the development of a new centrifugal atomization technology.

The GLASCENT project aims to develop a new technology for producing glass metallic powders. Metallic glasses are metals with an amorphous microstructure that are obtained by rapid cooling techniques.

These advanced materials have a huge interest in many fields of engineering due to their combination of properties and characteristics such as a high hardness, a high yield strength and a high fracture toughness or corrosion resistance.

The Unit of Metallic and Ceramic Materials of Eurecat participates in the GLASCENT project in the development and commissioning of a new device specifically designed for glass metallic powder manufacturing based on a centrifugal atomisation technology.

GLASCENT is a project co-financed by the European Funds for Regional Development of the European Union within the framework of the aid of the Knowledge Industry call for the year 2019 (Modality A. Llavor).
