Sciaky, Inc., Chicago, Illinois, USA, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI), has announced the purchase of an Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing System (EBAM) by a Japanese supplier. This marks the first installation of a Sciaky EBAM system in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Japanese supplier, which wishes to remain anonymous for competitive reasons, plans to announce the details of this project in Autumn 2017. The company is expected to utilise Sciaky’s system, which is scheduled for delivery in January 2018, to offer Additive Manufacturing services to its customer base, as well as for internal product development.

Sciaky’s EBAM systems are capable of producing parts in lengths ranging from 203mm (8 in) to 5.79m (19 ft). EBAM is reported to be 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.

“Sciaky is excited to work with this forward-thinking company,” stated Bob Phillips, Vice President of Marketing for Sciaky, Inc. “This is an historic milestone for the metal 3D printing market in that it will offer manufacturers in the Asia-Pacific region an opportunity to take advantage of EBAM’s one-of-a-kind capabilities.”
