    ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING LEADER FABRISONIC ADDS NEW MACHINE TO

    “AT CAPACITY” FACILITY

    New SonicLayer 4000® Machine Increases Fabrisonic’s Production Capacity by 25%

    Columbus, Ohio, USA, September 13th, 2017 – Fabrisonic LLC, a manufacturer specializing in metal 3D printing applications, adds a SonicLayer® 4000 machine to its operation (photos attached). The SonicLayer® 4000 utilizes the patented 9kW Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing (UAM) welding head to additively manufacture solid metal parts. This new addition will increase Fabrisonic’s production capacity by 25% for building prototypes and production parts with reduced lead times.

    The unique system is implemented with hybrid additive and subtractive capabilities using an integrated CNC machining all in the same open-air space. This includes a standard 50-taper 3-axis vertical machining center for achieving final dimensions at high accuracy and smooth finish.  With an envelope size of 24” x 40” x 24”, the equipment has the ability to build parts four times the size of a standard powder bed AM machine.

    “The demand for Fabrisonic’s UAM services has increased drastically throughout the last year and our machines were at capacity. The SonicLayer 4000 dramatically increase our output and affords us the

    freedom to explore new markets and stay on the cutting-edge of additive manufacturing,” says Mark Norfolk, President.   

    The SonicLayer® 4000 is one of three machines that Fabrisonic utilizes.  The company’s other machines include the SonicLayer® R200 which is primarily used for research and development of welding because it does not have a CNC attached, and the SonicLayer® 7200 which is the largest hybrid machine utilizing additive and subtractive processes with an envelope size of 6’ x 6’ x 3’.

    FABRISONIC ISSUED PATENT FOR CO-LOCATION OF ADDITIVE AND SUBTRACTIVE ELEMENTS IN ULTRASONIC ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

    Improved accuracy and large build volume without increasing machine footprint

    Columbus, Ohio, USA, February 21, 2017 – Fabrisonic LLC, a manufacturer specializing in metal 3D printing applications, utilizing Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing (UAM) technology was issued a patent (Invention number 9,446,475) for a system to co-locate both the additive and subtractive elements of their Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing equipment. The patent covers enhancements to the Fabrisonic hybrid metal 3D printers. The patented UAM weld head becomes a tool in the CAT 50 tool changer of a standard CNC mill. 

     “By co-locating the welding and milling functions, accuracy can be improved and overall build volume can be increased without increasing machine footprint,” states Fabrisonic’s CEO Mark Norfolk. “Our patents now count 10, which adds confirmation to Fabrisonic’s leadership in developing metal 3D printers.” Fabrisonic developed the technology along with Dave Bartholomew and Charles Sidlosky from Ultra Tech Machinery (Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio).
