Manufacturing technology. Fabrisonic is a joint venture between Solidica, a Michigan-based technology company, and EWI, an Ohio based manufacturing research organization. Solidica developed the base UAM technology in the late 90s and sold machines for a short time. Subsequently, EWI and Solidica have developed new IP that allows much higher power UAM machines. Fabrisonic was created to take advantage of these new designs that allow welding of high strength engineering alloys such as aero-grade Aluminums, Stainless Steels, and Titaniums.
EWI is an independent, not-for-profit, membership-based organization with the mission to advance and apply materials joining technology.
