Sciaky, Inc., Chicago, Illinois, USA, has reached an agreement to provide multiple Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM®) systems to an American-based metal AM parts supplier, the company has announced. The supplier will serve as a turnkey parts bureau for many industries, including aerospace, defence, automotive and oil & gas.

According to Sciaky, the parts supplier, which wishes to remain anonymous for competitive reasons, will unveil details of this project in the coming months. “Sciaky is excited to further expand our one-of-a-kind, large-scale metal AM technology with the marketplace,” stated Bob Phillips, Vice President of Marketing for Sciaky, Inc. “We are also proud that two American companies are working together in the Additive Manufacturing market to provide jobs for American families, without burdening the American taxpayer.”

Delivery of the first round of Sciaky EBAM® systems is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2017. The systems claim to be the most widely scalable metal AM solution in the industry in terms of work envelope, and can produce parts ranging from 203 mm (8 in) to 5.79 meters (19 ft) in length. EBAM® is reportedly the fastest deposition process in the metal Additive Manufacturing market, with gross deposition rates ranging from 3.18- 9.07kg (7-20 lbs) of metal per hour.
