Fabrisonic has been issued a patent for a system to co-locate both the additive and subtractive elements of its ultrasonic additive manufacturing equipment. This patent covers enhancements to the company's hybrid metal 3D printers, and enables its UAM weld head to become a tool in the CAT 50 toolchanger of a standard CNC mill. 

According to the company, co-locating the welding and milling functions improves accuracy, and enables a larger build volume without increasing the machine footprint. 

Video of the process and sample parts will be on display in the company's booth at Rapid 2017.
