Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI) and an active provider of metal additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, has announced that a prominent Southeast Asian aerospace parts manufacturer has purchased a dual-purpose Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM®) and EB Welding System. The one-of-a-kind hybrid machine will be customized with special controls to switch from 3D printing to welding in a quick and easy process.
Delivery of the hybrid system is scheduled for Q2 of 2019.
Sciaky’s EBAM brings quality and control together with IRISS® – the Interlayer Real-time Imaging and Sensing System, which is the only real-time adaptive control system in the metal 3D printing market that can sense and digitally self-adjust metal deposition with precision and repeatability.
Sciaky’s world-class EB welding systems have been the industry standard for decades, meeting rigid military specifications to manufacture items such as airframes, landing gear, jet engines, guided missiles and vehicle parts. The multi-axis gun motion operates at half the chamber volume of fixed/external gun systems, provides beam access for unusual joint configurations, and significantly simplifies part tooling.
