Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI) and leading provider of metal additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, has announced that it has posted record machine sales with the sale of four state-of-the-art Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM®) systems. The buyers will use the machines to 3D print titanium structures for aerospace applications, as well as to produce large parts for ground-based military vehicles, and warships. Three of the four machines will be the popular EBAM 110 model. The fourth machine will be an EBAM 150 model, which has a nominal part envelope, allowing the customer to 3D print the industry’s largest metal parts in-house. All four systems will be delivered around mid-2018.
Sciaky’s EBAM is the fastest deposition process in the metal additive manufacturing market, with gross deposition rates ranging from 7 to 20 lbs. EBAM brings quality and control together with IRISS® – the Interlayer Real-time Imaging and Sensing System 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.
