Fabrisonic’s unique additive manufacturing utilizes ultrasonic welding to 3D print. This ultrasonic process is called solid-state welding. Solid-state just means there is no melting, all of the bonding occurs without a phase change. Unlike powder bed fusion where powder is melted, Fabrisonic’s technique scrubs off the layer of oxide that usually prevents the metals from
