Project SonicSMR aims to develop a large working envelope laser-based Additive Manufacturing (AM) system suitable for the high repeatability and reproducibility manufacturing of Small Modular Reactor parts. Using leading edge supplementary technologies such as Power Ultrasonic, Optical Process Monitoring, and AI based Automated Defect Recognition, the SonicSMR system will enable the additive manufacture of defect-free complex SMR component parts. A fully operational AM machine will be assembled in Doncaster and will be used to build representative SMR demonstrator parts.
