APRIL 2004 -S 140 ABSTRACT. This article analyzes the mechanics of the metal ultrasonic welding process as a basis for a new solid free-form fabrication technology. Three-dimensional prototypes are constructed by ultrasonic welding of overlaid metal foil laminations, followed by contour cutting of the 2-D layers. This was implemented in the laboratory by a computer-automated ultrasonic welding station, and the normal compression, ultrasonic vibration, and process time for a single weld were… CONTINUE READING
