A Review on Experimental Investigation of Ultrasonic Consolidation Method Using VMC Machine

Mr.SamirBharatbhai Shah, Prof (Dr.) K.G. Dave


The metal layered manufacturing processes have provided industries with a fast method to build functional parts directly from CAD models. This paper compare previous papers of researchers at where they can used the aluminium,titanium,Copper,refractory materials and its alloy’s foils and with non toxic support materials to provide layer by layer manufacturing of sheet foils metals and its alloys and aim to behave like Rapid prototyping. Important basic researches regarding Ultrasonic consolidation is discussed. Different kinds of horns with 20 kHz and more frequency and remaing parts behaviour and process parameters with all testing are discuss.
