In order to produce centimetre-sized bulk glassy alloys (BMGs), various cast techniques have been developed. We succeed in the development of cap casting and enveloped casting technique to accomplish the fabrication of centimetre sized BMGs. The former has an advantage to increase cooling rate and the later has an advantage to joint another materials instead of welding. This paper presents the production of a glassy Zr55Cu30Ni 5Al10 alloy rod with a diameter of 32 mm and joined glassy Zr55Cu30Ni5Al10 alloy parts with another materials for industrial applications.
