Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI) and leading provider of metal additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, will provide an industry-leading Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM®) system to FAMAero, a privately-owned metal 3D printed parts bureau located in Fenton, Michigan.
FAMAero (Future Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace) will leverage Sciaky’s EBAM technology to offer fast and affordable large-scale 3D printed parts and prototypes to manufacturers seeking to reduce production time and costs associated with traditional manufacturing processes. FAMAero’s services will be appealing to customers in aerospace, defense, oil & gas, and sea exploration industries, where there is an abundance of applications for large-scale metal parts.
Sciaky’s EBAM systems is the fastest deposition process in the metal additive manufacturing market, with gross deposition rates ranging from 7 to 25 lbs. (3.18 to 11.34 kg) of metal per hour. 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.
