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.

  • 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?

  • Composites Machining for the F-35

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
