Sciaky Inc. will be offering its electron beam additive manufacturing (EBAM) systems for purchase. The company has predominantly offered the process as a service-only option to help manufacturers produce large-scale prototypes and production parts from metals such as titanium, tantalum, stainless steel and Inconel.
The EBAM process starts with a 3D model from a CAD program, then a fully-articulated, moving electron beam welding gun deposits metal (via wire feedstock), layer by layer, until the part reaches near-net shape and is ready for minor post-production machining.
The system’s build envelope ranges to 19 × 4 × 4 ft., and deposition rates range from 7 to 20 lbs/hr., depending on part geometry and material.
