Abstract

Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing (UAM) has been subject to research and investigation at Loughborough University since 2001. In recent years, three particular areas of significant focus have been: The influence of pre-process material texture on interlaminar bonding. Secure fibre positioning through laser machined channels. Freeform electrical circuitry integration. This paper details the key findings and a number of conclusions from these work areas. The results of this work have led to the further research and developmental applications for the UAM technology.
