Fabrisonic, an Ohio-based firm specializing in metallic 3D printing, will debut its newest system utilizing Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing (UAM) expertise, the SonicLayer 1200 machine at RAPID + TCT 2019 in Detroit subsequent week.
“Though UAM has been utilized for years in excessive impression markets reminiscent of aerospace and protection, the prices related to the massive scale Fabrisonic techniques has been a barrier to entry for some corporations and universities – the SonicLayer 1200 is each highly effective and reasonably priced,” defined Mark Norfolk, President & CEO of Fabricsonic.

The SonicLayer 1200
Fabrisonic was granted the patent to make use of UAM in 2017. This expertise is each additive and subtractive as all inner and exterior surfaces of a manufactured half have a CNC End. Via metallic deposition, UAM can also be able to bonding varied metals at a low temperature.
The SonicLayer 1200 maintains a construct envelop of 25.four x 25.four x 25.4cm. It options solid-state bonds at low temperatures (<2500 °F), which permits the aptitude to weld dissimilar metals and embedded electronics into totally dense metallic elements.
Luna Improvements, a producer of optical measurement gear for protection and medical trade, not too long ago partnered with Fabrisonic to fabricate sensible buildings product of metals.

Hybrid manufacturing and the aerospace trade
UAM has been leveraged to create warmth exchanger gadgets. These parts handed NASA’s high quality management checks final 12 months and might be used exterior of Mars rovers to guard its digital system from excessive temperatures in house. The warmth exchanger gadgets vary from small (three in. x three in.) to massive (three ft. x three ft.) buildings.
These headed to RAPID + TCT 2019 can go to Fabrisonic at sales space #216 the place the brand new SonicLayer 1200 machine might be operational.
Additionally, if you wish to meet with 3D Printing Trade throughout RAPID then get involved. In the event you can’t make it to Detroit then observe us on social media to be the primary with all the newest information.
