Sciaky launched its groundbreaking Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) process in 2009 with the objective to save manufacturers time and money on the production of large-scale, high-value metal parts and prototypes. Today, Sciaky’s EBAM process remains the only large-scale, fully-programmable means of achieving near-net shape parts made of Titanium, Tantalum, Inconel and other high-value metals.

Big Metal: What is Sciaky's definition of large-scale parts?
Sciaky’s EBAM process can produce parts up to 19' x 4' x 4' (L x W x H), allowing manufacturers to produce very large parts and structures, with virtually no waste.
While large part additive manufacturing is Sciaky's specialty, EBAM technology is also available for smaller part applications as well.
How does Sciaky’s EBAM process work?
Starting with a 3D model from a CAD program, Sciaky's fully-articulated, moving electron beam gun deposits metal (via wire feedstock; also known as Electron Beam Free Form Fabrication), layer by layer, until the part is built and ready for minor finish machining.
Deposition rates typically range from 7 to 20 lbs/hr, depending upon part geometry and the material selected.
What are some of the benefits of Sciaky's EBAM technology?
• It drastically reduce your material costs
• It dramatically shortens your lead times
• It slashes machining time by as much as 80%
• It saves money over costly forgings
• It eliminates wait time for dies, molds and expensive billets
Is Sciaky's EBAM technology available as a part|prototype manufacturing service?
Yes. Sciaky can manufacture your prototypes and production parts using its groundbreaking EBAM process to save you significant time and money. All you have to do is share your CAD file and project and material requirements. Our EBAM experts will work with you every step of the way.
Can I buy a Sciaky EBAM system to produce parts and prototypes in my own facility?
Yes. Sciaky now offers EBAM systems for purchase. All Sciaky EBAM systems are customized to meet your specific requirements. Sciaky also provides in-depth training and support so that your staff can become EBAM experts, too. Below is an example of a popular EBAM system.
The Sciaky VX-110 Electron Beam Advanced Manufacturing (EBAM) System is one of the most versatile manufacturing systems on the market. It provides significant advantages in energy efficiency, weld rate, part handling, motion, cycle time, and accuracy. It is also an excellent choice for applications containing refractory alloys and dissimilar materials.
