Fabrisonic’s SonicLayer 1200 features ultrasonic additive manufacturing (UAM) technology that provides an XYZ build envelop of 10" × 10" × 10". The UAM process combines a room-temperature metal deposition process with traditional CNC milling.

The machine can create complex arrays of smooth internal channels with G-code programming. As with other large UAM machines, the SonicLayer 1200 creates parts that feature solid-state bonds at low temperatures (less than 2,500 ºF), which enables the welding of dissimilar metals and embedding of electronics (sensors) into fully dense metal parts.


  • Dispelling Small Machine Shop Myths

    Many job shops start in a garage with a used mill and a manual lathe. The owners of this Utah job shop took a different tack. Along the way to a very successful business, they've debunked a bunch of myths commonly held about job shops.

  • Don’t Forget The Drawbar

    The force that holds the toolholder in the machining center's spindle can weaken over time. If you haven't checked drawbar force in a while, this may be the weak link in your process.

  • Tool Considerations for High Speed Cutting

    Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?
