- Sciaky and EWI will work together to 3D-print metal prototype parts for a wide range of manufacturers
Chicago, Illinois — July 20, 2016 – Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI), and leading provider of metal additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, announced today that EWI has purchased an industry-leading Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM™) system. EWI is a leading engineering and technology organization in North America dedicated to developing, testing, and implementing advanced manufacturing technologies for industry.
Sciaky and EWI will work together to produce prototype parts for high-tech manufacturers in a variety of industries across the U.S. Both companies plan to co-market their extensive metal 3D printing capabilities to the marketplace.
“Sciaky is very excited to work with an innovator like EWI,” said Mike Riesen, General Manager of Sciaky, Inc. “Beyond simply selling an EBAM system to EWI, Sciaky will collaborate with EWI to advance and promote EBAM technology into mutual fields of interest. New applications and solutions will surely be discovered under this exciting partnership.”
As the most widely scalable, metal 3D printing solution in the industry (in terms of work envelope), Sciaky’s EBAM systems can produce parts ranging from 8 inches (203 mm) to 19 feet (5.79 meters) in length, but can also manufacture smaller and larger parts, depending on the application. EBAM is also the fastest deposition process in the metal additive manufacturing market, with gross deposition rates ranging from 7 to 20 lbs. (3.18 to 9.07 kg) of metal per hour. Plus, with a dual wirefeed option, two different metal alloys can be combined into a single melt pool to create “custom alloy” parts or ingots. In addition, the mixture ratio of the two materials can be changed to create “graded” parts or structures.
