Sciaky, Inc., Chicago, Illinois, USA, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI), has announced that it has entered into an agreement with KTM Consultants, Robina, Australia, to increase sales efforts of its Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM®) systems in Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East.
KTM’s founder is Trent Mackenzie, a metallurgist with over 40 years of experience in foundry, forging and heat treatment operations, having held senior management positions with Sandvik, Outokumpu, Special Metals and ATI. In 2015, Mackenzie took his knowledge of corrosive resistant alloys and launched KTM Consultants, with an emerging focus on Additive Manufacturing.
“I was immediately drawn to Sciaky’s EBAM technology because of its unique and robust capabilities,” stated Mackenzie. “Industrial manufacturers of large metal parts need to explore the significant advantages that technologies like EBAM offer. It is truly a game-changer.”
“Sciaky is proud to work with the knowledgeable team at KTM Consultants,” added Scott Phillips, President and CEO of Sciaky, Inc. “Industrial metal 3D printing technology will benefit greatly by having accomplished leaders like Trent Mackenzie educating the marketplace on its tremendous ROI.”
Sciaky’s EBAM systems can produce parts ranging from 203 mm (8 in) to 5.79 m (19 ft) in length. EBAM is also said to be the fastest deposition process in the metal AM market, with gross deposition rates ranging from 3.18 to 11.34 kg (7–25 lbs) of metal per hour.
