Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI) and leading provider of metal additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, has announced that it delivered an industry-leading Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM®) system to the Global Research & Innovative Technology (GRIT) facility of Hitachi Metals, Ltd. in Kumagaya, Japan.
The EBAM 110 system purchased by Hitachi Metals includes a dual wirefeed configuration. With this configuration, customers can combine two different metal alloys into a single melt pool, managed with independent program control, to create custom alloy parts or ingots. Customers also have the option to alternate between different wire gauges for finer and gross deposition features to meet unique part specifications.
Sciaky’s EBAM is the fastest deposition process in the metal additive manufacturing market. 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. This innovative closed-loop control is the primary reason that Sciaky’s EBAM 3D printing process delivers consistent part geometry, mechanical properties, microstructure, and metal chemistry.
