Fabrisonic welcomed another SonicLayer 4000 machine to its production metal 3D printing facility. Fabrisonic’s production machines start out life as a commercial 3 Axis CNC mill. To the base mill, Fabrisonic adds it patented welding head for additive manufacturing.

The print head is treated as another tool in the CNC tool changer. The additive head is used to add material to produce a part that is near net shape. The mill can then be used to CNC machine final true shape. The hybrid system allows for a silky smooth final surface finish as well as tolerances of +/-.0005”.

The SonicLayer 4000 is the Goldilocks of the UAM machine line-up, not too big and not too small.  Fabrisonic has three main machine models that are used to meet our customers metal 3D printing needs.

The SonicLayer R200 platform was designed for rapid research of UAM bonds.   It has a minimum amount of automation with only two axes of motion-powered.  This allows for rapid transitions material to the material during experiments and an affordable price for research organizations. The SonicLayer 4000 platform has a build area of approximately 24”x24”x24” and is fully operated by CNC controls.  It is suitable for the production of parts and more demanding R&D programs.

The largest SonicLayer 7200 platform has a build area of approximately 60”x60”x36” and is fully operated by CNC control. It is only suitable for full-scale production applications. Obtaining this new machine will enable the company to shorten lead times.
