Burloak Technologies, Burlington, Ontario, Canada, a division of Samuel, Son and Co., Limited, has signed an agreement with Sciaky, Inc., Chicago, Illinois, USA, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc., to purchase an EBAM 110, one of Sciaky’s Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing systems.

The EBAM 110 system offers large scale, near net-shape metal parts made from a wide range of metals. The system will operate at Burloak’s recently announced Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence, where it will manufacture large structural components for flight applications, with dimensions up to 269 x 119 x 160 cm (106 x 47 x 63 in), or diameters of 269 cm (106 in).

Peter Adams, Co-founder and President of Burloak Technologies, stated, “Using traditional subtractive processes, such as forging and machining, the production of titanium parts of this size could take one year, while generating a significant amount of wast. Our EBAM 110 system will allow us to manufacture the same large-scale titanium structural parts in a matter of days. We are already engaged with several aerospace end-users who have started the qualification process with us.”

“Sciaky’s EBAM systems are the most widely sold large-scale metal 3D printing system in the world, having qualified parts on land, sea, air, and space applications,” commented Scott Phillips, President and CEO of Sciaky, Inc. “The innovators at Burloak Technologies will leverage the numerous benefits of EBAM to produce faster and cheaper parts for their customers all across the globe.”

The EBAM 110 system is capable of building parts in a full vacuum environment and can deposit up to 11 kgs (25 lbs) of titanium per hour. Burloak Technologies stated that it is accepting development projects for the system, with full production capability expected in the third quarter of 2019.
