Vaporizing foil actuator 

A thin conductor can be vaporized rapidly by passing a high current through it. This explosive-like event causes a high pressure pulse that can transmitted into the workpiece for impulse processing such as impact welding shown here. 

A prototyping unit similar to the one shown here is available for purchase.
