Available EB Welding Systems

Refurbished EBW-68x68x84
Price: Call for Pricing


Used EB Welding System

Sciaky has a refurbished EBW-68x68x84 available. The machine is a 30KW W2000 computer-controlled hard vacuum beam welder, with an internally mounted low voltage (60KV) gun and a motorized work carriage. 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. The motorized gun and work carriage mechanisms that are included with the base machine consist of high precision servo-controlled mechanical arrangements that manipulate the X, Y, Z axes. The work carriage plate incorporates machined T-slots to mount and clamp work pieces, welding fixtures, or the rotary headstock assembly included with the system.

The W2000 computer control system comes with a portable pendant and has the capability to be programmed to provide simultaneous weld parameters and servo contouring using multiple mechanical axes.

This system can be upgraded to an Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM™) system. Sciaky’s EBAM™ systems are the most advanced metal 3D printing systems on the market.

We now offer Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) upgrades for Sciaky EB welding systems. EBAM upgrades are customized to meet your specific requirements. Sciaky also provides in-depth training and support so that your staff can become EBAM experts, too.

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, layer by layer, until the part is built and ready for 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 reduces 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

Call Sciaky today at 1+877-450-2518 to tailor a retrofit or upgrade package for your system that will deliver the performance and reliability you need.

Protect Your Investment with EBPlus Services

Sciaky welders training and customer service

Your Sciaky EB welding system is an integral part of your manufacturing business. Its availability to your production staff is crucial. For that reason, Sciaky recommends regular service evaluations to keep it running at optimal performance.

Sciaky’s Technical Services Team is ready to assist you with tailored options for:

  • Preventive maintenance
  • Repairs
  • Modifications, upgrades and retrofits
  • Software upgrades and maintenance
  • Emergency repair and surplus part services

Benchmark Testing & Preventive Maintenance

Working directly with your technical point-of-contact, a Sciaky Field Service Technician will visit your site and perform benchmark testing procedures, along with a preventive maintenance assessment. This service is recommended every six months and requires approximately three 10-hour days. Sciaky will schedule the assessment at your convenience to minimize production downtime. The service covers the following subsystem equipment:

  • Pumping System
  • Computer Controls
  • Drive Systems
  • Beam Control System
  • Beam Deflection System
  • Electron Beam Gun
  • Gun Optics
  • Cable Interfaces
  • High Voltage System
  • X-Ray Survey

Any defective parts revealed during the preventive maintenance assessment will be identified (by Sciaky part number) and recommended for replacement. If required, Sciaky will advise a course of action for on-site repair to restore your welder back to original system requirements.

Calibration Evaluation

The accuracy of welding components naturally drifts overtime. Therefore, it is necessary to calibrate welder parameters at regular intervals. Calibration quantifies and improves welder performance, reduces inconsistency, and maintains peak production. To help you meet your calibration needs, a calibration should be performed on your Sciaky EB Welding System once a year. The Calibration Evaluation Service includes:

  • Accelerating Voltages
  • Beam Currents
  • Beam Focus
  • Scanner Accuracy
  • All Axes Velocities
  • Beam Deflection
  • Filament Operation

Calibration evaluation requires approximately five 10-hour days. Sciaky will schedule the evaluation at your convenience to minimize production downtime. Subsystem recalibration may require requalification of existing weld schedules as specified by the end user.

Keep Your EB Welding System Modern & Efficient with System Upgrades & Accessories

Sciaky provides accessories, retrofit packages, as well as technology and component upgrades, to seamlessly modernize your EB system and improve performance. Examples of system upgrades include:

  • Power supply
  • PC system software
  • Optics
  • Motion systems hardware
