The main aim of this paper was to produce amorphous ribbons with specified composition with the use of various process parameters and X-ray qualitative and quantitative phase analysis after casting and heat treating. Station for ultra-fast cooling of the molten alloy with high vacuum pumps designed for the production of metallic glasses in the form: of ribbons with the use of B├╝hler Melt Spinner SC was used. The X-ray qualitative and quantitative phase analysis, microscopic observation, microhardness and thermal properties tests of the investigated ribbons were conducted. Based on experimental data the discussion on the correlation between casting process parameters, phase and quantitative composition and heat treatment was carried out.
