3D printing specialist Fabrisonic has published a new whitepaper entitled Breakthroughs in Multi-Metal 3D Printing – Producing Multifunction Parts.

‘For many designs, reducing the number of parts is critical to saving manufacturing time and reducing costs,’ the company said. ‘For certain applications, it can also free up valuable space and weight – a game-changing factor for many industries.’

The whitepaper, which can be found here, takes a look at how manufacturers are able to create multifunctional structures and parts with ultrasonic additive manufacturing technology. Using miniature satellites called CubeSats as an example, the paper explores four features that are made possible through the application of Fabrisonic’s technology.
