U.S. Tech Publisher's Choice: July 2018

Internet of Things (IoT) networks are being built across a range of industries, enabled by millions of sensors that detect and respond to external stimuli. For industrial use, it is typical to attach these sensors to the outside of equipment, where they are exposed to the elements and can be damaged during use.
Now, it is possible to use 3D metal printing to embed sensors inside heavy industrial equipment, providing information in situ and protecting the devices. In an article entitled, "Building Fiber Optic Strain Sensors into Metal Components," Adam Hehr, research engineer at Fabrisonic, LLC, discusses ultrasonic additive manufacturing that is enabling new applications for sensors.
The article covers a few methods to carry out ultrasonic 3D printing, benefits to sensor safety and equipment strength, and a glimpse into the future of this new technology.
