By use of excellent properties of bulk metallic glasses, some industrial products were practically prepared and their performances were investigated. Linear actuator constructed by a set of Fe-based BMG yokes generates large Lorentz force due to the large permeability and saturation magnetization of the BMG. Ni-based BMG microgear prepared by injection casting exhibits nano-imprintability against the surface roughness of mold. The newly developed alloy with a nominal atomic composition of Ti52Cu23Ni 11Mo7Fe7 exhibits high yield strength of 1250 MPa, high fracture strength of 2740 MPa and large plastic elongation of over 20%. These results for the industrial products made of BMGs are promising for future developments as industrial materials with high performance.
