EBAM system will help manufacturer save significant time and cost on the production of large, high-value metal parts

Chicago, Illinois — Sciaky, Inc.,a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI) and provider of large-scale additive manufacturing solutions, announced today that it received a purchase order from a major aerospace parts maker to provide an electron beam additive manufacturing (EBAM) system. The EBAM system will help the manufacturer save significant time and cost on the production of large, high-value metal parts.

On July 10, Sciaky announced the availability of EBAM systems to the marketplace. This is the first of two multi-million dollar orders from a major global manufacturing company since the announcement. In addition, Sciaky is working with over a dozen other companies and entities within the aerospace, defense and manufacturing sectors to provide EBAM systems for their unique needs.

Sciaky's EBAM technology combines computer-aided design (CAD), electron beam welding technology and layer-additive processing. Starting with a 3D model from a CAD program, Sciaky's fully-articulated, moving electron beam welding gun deposits metal, layer by layer, until the part reaches near-net shape. From there, the near-net shape part requires minor post-production machining. The 110" x 110" x 110" (L x W x H) build envelope of the EBAM system will allow the manufacturer to produce large parts, with virtually no waste.

"Sciaky is proud to partner with this major aerospace parts manufacturer" said Mike Riesen, general manager of Sciaky, Inc. "The EBAM system will certainly give them a competitive advantage in the marketplace."

Besides offering innovative additive manufacturing solutions for metal parts, Sciaky provides state-of-the-art electron beam and advanced arc welding systems, as well as job shop/contract welding services, for manufacturers in the aerospace, defense, automotive, and healthcare industries. Sciaky's welding equipment meets rigid military specifications to manufacture items such as airframes, landing gear, jet engines, guided missiles and vehicle parts.
