Fabrisonic Hybrid Enables Solid-State Bonds at Low Temperatures
Fabrisonic releases its SonicLayer 1200 machine which offers Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing (UAM) technology at an affordable price, the company says. The SonicLayer 1200 features a build envelope of 9" × 9" × 16" (XYZ). The proprietary UAM process developed by Fabrisonic combines room-temperature metal deposition with the ease of traditional CNC milling, the company says. UAM enables solid-state bonds at temperatures less than 250°F to support aid welding dissimilar metals and embedding sensors and electronics into fully dense metal parts.
The machine uses a hybrid additive and subtractive process to enable complex arrays of smooth internal channels. All internal and external surfaces have a CNC finish, and the process is driven by industry-standard G code.
