Solid State (Ultrasonic) Additive Manufacturing

Ultrasonic additive manufacturing is a solid-state additive process for fabrication of fully-dense metal structures from foil stock. When combined with subtractive processes, it can be used to fabricate 3D structures that incorporate dissimilar metals (e.g., aluminum, copper, and titanium), internal conformal channels for cooling and other transport purposes, and temperature-sensitive components such as sensors, reinforcement fibers, electronic circuits, fiber optics, and smart materials. This presentation will provide an overview of the technology and specific use cases in thermal management for satellites, embedded sensing for pipelines, and 3D printing metal matrix composites for aerospace.
