Sciaky, Inc., based in Chicago, Illinois, USA, has announced that it received a purchase order from a major aerospace parts maker to provide an Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) system. The EBAM system will help manufacturers save significant time and cost on the production of large, high-value metal parts.

This is the first of two multi-million dollar orders from a major global manufacturing company following Sciaky’s announcement on July 10 about the release of its EBAM system. In addition, Sciaky is working with over a dozen other companies and entities within the aerospace, defence and manufacturing sectors to provide EBAM systems for their unique needs.

Sciaky’s EBAM technology combines computer-aided design (CAD), electron beam welding technology and layer-additive processing. Starting with a 3D model from a CAD program, Sciaky’s fully-articulated, moving electron beam welding gun deposits metal, layer by layer, until the part reaches near-net shape. From there, the near-net shape part requires minor post-production machining. The 280 cm x 280 cm x 280 cm (110″ x 110″ x 110″) build envelope of the EBAM system will allow manufacturers to produce large parts with virtually no waste.

“Sciaky is proud to partner with this major aerospace parts manufacturer,” stated Mike Riesen, General Manager of Sciaky, Inc. “The EBAM system will certainly give them a competitive advantage in the marketplace.”

Sciaky also provides state-of-the-art electron beam and advanced arc welding systems, as well as job shop/contract welding services, for manufacturers in the aerospace, defence, automotive, and healthcare industries.
