This paper addresses a novel non-thermal Ultrasonic Rapid Manufacturing (URM), for layered parts based on Ultrasonic Metal Welding (USW). Its laboratory implementation, automation and integration are described first. The thermo-mechanical process aspects (i.e. heat generation and resulting temperature effects) during each cycle of ultrasonic welding are then studied. The technical advantages of ultrasonic welding process, including fabrication of dense, full-strength functional solid metal parts, multi-material composites, and active parts with embedded intelligent components and electronic, mechatronic, optic and fluidic structures, are examined.
