Fabrisonic LLC, a leading parts and machine manufacturer in Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing (UAM) 3D printing, has announced the release of the SonicLayer 1600.
This hybrid manufacturing and fabrication platform hosts both additive and subtractive 3D metal printing processes.
The SonicLayer 1600 features a build envelope of 14.5” x 14.5” x 17” and a high-powered 9 kW head on a medium-sized CNC milling center frame.
Fabrisonic utilizes a unique 3D metal printing process that harnesses sound waves to merge layers of metal foil in a process that requires no melting. Building in the solid-state enables Fabrisonic to join dissimilar metals to create new materials.
Consequently, the SonicLayer 1600 is an ideal fabrication platform for manufacturing operations that require the production of products and devices that involve printing new alloys, embedding sensors, or creating smooth, complex internal pathways and geometries – or all three.
Fabrisonic is known for its innovative and cutting-edge technology, and the SonicLayer 1600 is no exception. The platform provides a cost-effective and versatile solution for manufacturing operations that require complex metal parts with unique geometries and features.
“The SonicLayer 1600 is an all-purpose tool that is both affordable and versatile,” said Mark Norfolk, Fabrisonic President & CEO.
“This platform is in response to a large customer demand, and we are very pleased with the enthusiastic response.”
This platform brings a level of capability to a mid-sized CNC/milling platform that can be found nowhere else.
