Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI) and a leading provider of industrial metal 3D printing solutions, has announced that it will be exhibiting at Formnext 2022 in Frankfurt, Germany, from November 15-18, 2022. It will display aerospace components and refractory metal test articles made with their patented Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) machines at Formnext, as well as discuss their Electron Beam Welding (EBW) capabilities.
Sciaky recently announced a record titanium deposition rate of 40lb/hr, the sale of an EBAM machine to Turkish Aerospace Industries capable of depositing or welding across a 6 meter long, 2 meter wide, and 1.8 meter high window, and President Biden’s first look at EBAM technology through Lockheed Martin’s production of titanium propellant tanks for space satellites.
The Sciaky Global Sales Team will be on hand to demonstrate its latest innovations, explain the process and design ideals behind EBAM and EBW, and assist with integrating either (or both) into an application.
Furthermore, Sciaky’s Global Sales Manager John O’Hara will speak about Sciaky Machines’ ability to switch between EBAM and EBW modes, allowing customers to complete multiple production steps with the same machine. The presentation will show how Sciaky’s customers have implemented this capability, as well as the design considerations that have led to their use of both EBAM and EBW. On Wednesday, November 16, at 12:00pm CET, the presentation will take place on the introducing stage at Formnext 2022.
“We are happy to be at Formnext for another year. We’ve seen EBAM producing parts both bigger and faster year-over-year, all while improving quality, and we hope that manufacturers will build off of our innovations to save themselves both time and money making the biggest parts in their industry.”– Scott Phillips, President and CEO of Sciaky, Inc.
Sciaky’s EBAM systems, the most widely scalable metal additive manufacturing solution in the industry (in terms of work envelope), can produce parts ranging in length from 8 inches (203 mm) to 20 feet (> 6 meters). With gross deposition rates ranging from seven to forty pounds (3.18 to 18.14 kg) of metal per hour, EBAM is also the fastest deposition process in the metal additive manufacturing market.
The Interlayer Real-time Imaging and Sensing System (IRISS®) is the only real-time adaptive control system in the metal 3D printing market that can sense and digitally self-adjust metal deposition with precision and repeatability. Sciaky’s EBAM 3D printing process is distinguished by its innovative closed-loop control, which ensures consistent part geometry, mechanical properties, microstructure, and metal chemistry from the first to the last part.
