Sciaky to deliver EBAM™ 110 System to Airbus

A Sciaky EBAM 100 System

Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI), and provider of metal additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, has recently declared that Airbus will take delivery of a state-of-the-art Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM™) 110 System in December 2016. The renowned aircraft manufacturer will utilize Sciaky’s industrial-scale metal 3D printing system to produce large structural parts made of titanium.
Sciaky’s EBAM process combines computer-aided design (CAD), additive manufacturing processing principles, and an electron beam heat source. Sciaky brings quality and control together in one step with IRISS™ – the Interlayer Real-time Imaging and Sensing System. This closed-loop control is the primary reason that Sciaky’s EBAM 3D printing process delivers consistent part geometry, mechanical properties, microstructure, and metal chemistry, from the first part to the last.
EBAM utilizes wire feedstock, which can accommodate a wide variety of metals and refractory alloys, such as titanium, tantalum, niobium, tungsten, Inconel, and stainless steels. Sciaky’s EBAM 110 System has a work envelope of 70” (1778 mm) x 47” (1194 mm) x 63” (1600 mm).
“Sciaky is very proud to partner with a world-class innovator like Airbus,” said Bob Phillips, Vice President of Marketing for Sciaky, Inc. “We all know that metal 3D printing technology is going to revolutionize manufacturing in the aerospace industry, and Sciaky is committed to being at the forefront of this movement.”
