Technical Abstract

LM Group Holdings Inc. (LMGH) coupled with Fabrisonic Inc. is proposing a program to investigate additive
manufacturing of unique amorphous metal alloys by using the ultrasonic additive manufacturing (UAM)
technology to achieve multifunctional properties that are not possible using conventional manufacturing
processes.
 

Potential NASA Applications

Fans and compressor section of turbine engines ­ Other engine components (blades, disc, hubs, inlet guide
vanes and cases) ­ Hypersonic vehicles (scramjet inlet flap) ­ Bearings ­ Impellers ­ Fuel nozzles ­ Gears ­ Struts ­
Springs ­ Hydraulics systems
 

Potential Non-NASA Applications

Several applications requiring high strength and superior corrosion resistance in energy, desalinization, power, paper, automotive
