Fabrisonic LLC, Columbus, Ohio, USA, has been recognised with ASM International’s Engineering Materials Achievement Award for its patented Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing process (aka Ultrasonic Consolidation). This award recognises 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.

The company’s proprietary ultrasonic AM process utilises a solid-state ultrasonic bonding mechanism that is said to have minimal effect on a metal’s microstructure (unlike comparable powder-based fusion Additive Manufacturing processes). The solid-state bond created in this technique permits the joining of dissimilar metals without metallurgical mismatch issues.

A wide range of material combinations can be additively manufactured in a single part, opening the design space to enable property gradients and engineered material properties for increased performance. Through the collective effort of Solidica, EWI, Fabrisonic and various partner organisations, the process has made significant advancements throughout the past two decades.
