Sciaky to Provide Multiple Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM®) Systems to American Parts Supplier

Sciaky's EBAM systems will help this 3D printing parts supplier provide the industry's largest metal parts to leading aerospace, defense, automotive, and oil & gas manufacturers

CHICAGO, May 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI) and leading provider of metal additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, has reached an agreement to provide multiple Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM®) systems to an American-based metal 3D printing parts supplier. The supplier will serve as a turnkey parts bureau for many industries, including aerospace, defense, automotive, and oil & gas.


The parts supplier, who wishes to remain anonymous for competitive reasons, will unveil details of this project in the coming months.

"Sciaky is excited to further expand our one-of-a-kind, large-scale metal 3D printing technology with the marketplace," said Bob Phillips, Vice President of Marketing for Sciaky, Inc. "We are also proud that two American companies are working together in the Additive Manufacturing market to provide jobs for American families, without burdening the American taxpayer."

Delivery of the first round of Sciaky EBAM systems is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2017.

As the most widely scalable, metal additive manufacturing solution in the industry (in terms of work envelope), Sciaky's EBAM systems can produce parts ranging from 8 inches (203 mm) to 19 feet (5.79 meters) in length. EBAM is also the fastest deposition process in the metal additive manufacturing market, with gross deposition rates ranging from seven to 20 lbs. (3.18 to 9.07 kg) of metal per hour. EBAM brings quality and control together with IRISS® - the Interlayer Real-time Imaging and Sensing System, which is the only real-time monitoring and 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, from the first part to the last.
