Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing
Producing a mold with conformal cooling channels
This video from additive manufacturing technology company Fabrisonic shows ultrasonic additive manufacturing being used to produce a mold with conformal cooling channels. The solid-state additive process builds parts by laying metal strip, then fusing this material without melting it. The process can be used not only to build large parts quickly, but also to create parts that combine materials without mixing them.
A Primer on 3D Printing
Lisa Harouni on TED talks
2012 may be the year of 3D printing, when this three-decade-old technology finally becomes accessible and even commonplace. Lisa Harouni gives a useful introduction to this fascinating way of making things -- including intricate objects once impossible to create.
Lisa Harouni is the co-founder of Digital Forming, working in "additive manufacturing" -- or 3D printing.
