Fabrisonic Process Wins ASM International AwardOctober 17, 2022
Fabrisonic’s patented Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing (UAM) process has been recognized by ASM International with the 2022 Engineering Materials Achievement Award. The award recognizes outstanding achievement in materials or materials systems relating to the application of knowledge of materials to an engineering structure or to the design and manufacture of a product.
Fabrisonic’s low-temperature UAM technology relies on solid-state ultrasonic bonding with no change to metal microstructure. The bond permits joining of dissimilar metals without the metallurgical mismatch issues seen in other additive processes, according to company officials. UAM allows a range of material combinations to be printed in a single part, reportedly opening the design space to enable property gradients and engineered material.
