Chicago, Illinois - Sciaky, Inc., a world-renowned supplier of electron beam, advanced arc and resistance welding systems, launched a new video that shows how manufacturers can save money and boost productivity by utilizing Sciaky's Direct Manufacturing (DM) solution.
Sciaky's DM solution is the first commercially-available, large-scale, fully-programmable means of achieving near-net shape parts. The solution utilizes Sciaky's state-of-the art Electron Beam Direct Manufacturing (EBDM) technology to produce functional prototypes and production parts at a fraction of the cost of traditional manufacturing methods. Starting with a 3D model from a CAD program, Sciaky's fully-articulated, moving electron beam gun deposits metal, layer by layer, until the part is complete. Depending on the part being manufactured, deposition rates can range up to 200 cubic inches per hour. With a light alloy, such as Titanium, this translates to a real-time deposition rate of 40 pounds per hour. A wide range of engineering alloys are compatible with the DM process and are readily available in the form of welding wire from an existing supply base. These include, but are not limited to, stainless steels, Cobalt alloys, Nickel alloys, Copper Nickel alloys, Tantalum, as well as many other high-value materials.
