Sciaky Inc, Chicago, Illinois, USA, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries (PSI) Inc has announced its EBAM-53 metal Additive Manufacturing machine. Aimed at laboratory and research facilities, the new Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) machine is targeted at users who require research on a smaller scale, before a move up to the larger machines in Sciaky’s range.

EBAM is a wire-based electron beam Directed Energy Deposition (DED) Additive Manufacturing process. The EBAM-53 features the same equipment for process optimisation and materials development as the larger-scale machines, but requires a smaller floor space and is marketed at a lower cost. The new machine will also use the same electron beam generator, as well as the same sensors, computers, and process control software, making research directly scalable into the larger production-ready EBAM models.

The EBAM-53 is intended to fit into laboratory and R&D settings with ease and ships in a standard shipping container. It will feature a build envelope of a 635 mm3 cube, allowing for test coupons, small demonstrators, and geometry trial parts. Like all previously delivered EBAM machines, the new machine will feature the IRISS process control software. Rotary and tilt positioners are also available as options.

“This has been a goal of Sciaky for years.  We have been asked numerous times to offer a system appropriate for a research environment,” said Scott Phillips, president at Sciaky. “We can now answer this part of the industry’s demand. With the EBAM-53, users can conduct meaningful research and development that can easily migrate to larger production-scale systems in the future.”

The first EBAM-53 will ship to a customer site before the end of 2023, and will be offered to the wider industry from January 2024.
