Fabrisonic’s SonicLayer 1200 features Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing (UAM) technology and a build envelop of 10" × 10" × 10" (X, Y, Z). The ultrasonic additive manufacturing (UAM) process combines a room-temperature metal deposition process with traditional CNC milling.

The machine enables the creation of complex arrays of smooth internal channels with G-code programming. Just like with other large UAM machines, parts 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.
