Sciaky, Inc. launched its Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM™) process to save manufacturers time and money on the production of large metal parts and prototypes. EBAM produces parts ranging from 8 inches (203 mm) to 19 feet (5.79 meters) in length. Gross deposition rates range from 7 to 20 lbs. (3.18 to 9.07 kg) of metal per hour, and the near-net shape parts result in less machining time and minimal material waste. The EBAM process utilizes wire feedstock, which is available in titanium, tantalum, niobium, Inconel, stainless steels, and more. Sciaky’s patented IRISS™ closed-loop control provides consistent process control for part geometry, mechanical properties, microstructure, and metal chemistry for EBAM 3D printed parts, from the first part to the last. In addition, with an EBAM dual wirefeed option, you can combine two different metal alloys into a single melt pool to create “custom alloy” parts or ingots. Plus, you can change the mixture ratio of the two materials to create “graded” parts or structures.

  • With this new and exciting use of EBAM, Sciaky is the world’s only industrial-scale metal AM provider with approved parts in land, sea, air, and space applications 

    Chicago, Illinois – Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI), and leading provider of metal 3D printing solutions, announced today that its Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM™) technology helped International Submarine Engineering (ISE), Ltd. cut significant time and cost from the production of a titanium Variable Ballast (VB) tank versus the traditional manufacturing process.

    ISE approached Sciaky after the closure of its former supplier, an overseas titanium forging facility that produced propellant tanks for the Russian space program. ISE did not want to risk further delays in their exploration plans, so they reached out to Sciaky, after learning that Sciaky had 3D printed titanium propellant tanks for Lockheed Martin Space Systems in 2015.

    The engineers and project management team at Sciaky immediately put together an aggressive plan to produce a new titanium VB tank for ISE using Sciaky’s patented EBAM 3D printing process. In the end, Sciaky helped ISE reduce production time from 16 weeks to 8 weeks, as well as reduce overall costs as compared to retooling with a new forging supplier. In addition, the VB tank created with Sciaky’s EBAM process passed the same vigorous qualification testing as the tank previously created with the forging process. ISE now plans to 3D print other critical titanium parts with Sciaky’s EBAM process.

    The titanium VB tank is a sub-system of ISE’s Arctic Explorer Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) class of vehicles. ISE previously built two Arctic Explorers for Natural Resources Canada/Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) to map the sea floor underneath the Arctic ice shelf in support of Canada’s claim under Article 76 of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. The Arctic Explorer is the largest of the Explorer AUV class, measuring over seven meters (nearly 23 feet) long and weighing over 2000 kilograms (4409 pounds). It can be launched from a ship or through an ice-hole and the modular sections can be separated for transportation. Its unique VB system enables it to park on the sea floor or hold itself on the underside of the ice during missions. Rated to 5,000 meters (roughly 3.11 miles) depth, the Arctic Explorer is designed to remain underwater between missions for extended periods of time. A small Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) conducts all servicing and charging after the AUV is attached to a docking head.

    The VB tank 3D printed with Sciaky’s EBAM process will be installed onboard a new Arctic Explorer AUV that is scheduled to be delivered to the University of Tasmania in the spring of 2017. This new Explorer AUV will be deployed in Antarctica after extensive trials and training operations.

    “Sciaky is proud to help ISE cut production time by 50 percent and reduce costs by 3D printing their titanium VB tank with our one-of-a-kind EBAM process,” said Bob Phillips, Vice President of Marketing for Sciaky, Inc. “Our industry-leading EBAM technology is the world’s only industrial-scale metal 3D printing solution with approved parts for land, sea, air, and space applications.”

    As the most widely scalable metal 3D printing solution in the industry in terms of work envelope, Sciaky’s lineup of 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.

  • Sciaky’s Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM™) system will help the leading aircraft manufacturer save significant time and cost on the production of large titanium structural parts  

    CHICAGO, Illinois – Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI), and leading provider of metal additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, announced today that Airbus will take delivery of a state-of-the-art Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM™) 110 System in December 2016. The renowned aircraft manufacturer will utilize Sciaky’s industrial-scale metal 3D printing system to produce large structural parts made of titanium.

    Sciaky’s EBAM process combines computer-aided design (CAD), additive manufacturing processing principles, and an electron beam heat source. Starting with a 3D model from a CAD program, Sciaky's fully-articulated, moving electron beam gun deposits metal via wire feedstock, layer by layer, until the part reaches near-net shape. From there, the near-net shape part requires heat treatment and post-production machining. In the end, there is minimal material waste.

    Sciaky brings quality and control together in one step with IRISS™ – the Interlayer Real-time Imaging and Sensing System. IRISS 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 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.

    As mentioned above, EBAM utilizes wire feedstock, which can accommodate a wide variety of metals and refractory alloys, such as titanium, tantalum, niobium, tungsten, Inconel, and stainless steels. Sciaky’s EBAM 110 System has a work envelope of 70” (1778 mm) x 47” (1194 mm) x 63” (1600 mm).
