Sciaky, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, offers its Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) systems for medium-size, large and extra-large part applications. The scalable work envelope accommodates parts ranging from 203 mm to 5.79 m (8" to 19 ft.) in length. EBAM is said to deliver a fast metal deposition process, with gross deposition rates ranging from 3.18 to 9.07 kg (7 to 20 lbs) per hour. The EBAM system uses wire feedstock, which is available in materials such as titanium, tantalum, niobium, tungsten, molybdenum, Inconel, aluminum, stainless steels, nickel alloys and more. With the machine’s dual wire feed option, it is possible to combine two different metal alloys into a single melt pool to create custom alloy parts or ingots, or alter the mixture ratio of the two materials to create graded parts or structures.
