Sciaky releases New Video that Highlights Technology behind its groundbreaking Additive Manufacturing Solution

Sciaky, Inc. releases new Additive Manufacturing video that highlights the technology behind its exclusive, groundbreaking Additive Manufacturing solution

January 7, 2013

Chicago, Illinois – Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries (PSI) and leading provider of additive manufacturing solutions, announced today that it has launched a new Additive/Direct Manufacturing (AM or DM) video.

With the objective to save manufacturers time and money on the production of large, high-value metal parts and prototypes, Sciaky launched its groundbreaking DM solution, which is based on additive manufacturing principles, in 2009. Today, Sciaky’s DM solution remains the only large-scale, fully-programmable means of achieving near-net shape parts made of titanium, tantalum, inconel and other high-value metals, ranging up to 19 feet in length, 4 feet in width and 4 feet high (19’x4’x4’). The solution combines computer-aided design (CAD), Sciaky’s state-of-the art electron beam welding technology and layer-additive processing. Starting with a 3D model from a CAD program, Sciaky’s fully-articulated, moving electron beam welding gun deposits metal, layer by layer, until the part is complete and ready for finish machining. Deposition rates typically range from 7 to 20 pounds per hour, depending upon part geometry and the material selected.

Over the past two years, Sciaky’s DM solution has been at the heart of several key advanced research and development programs with the Department of Defense (DoD), U.S. Air Force, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, DARPA and Penn State University’s Applied Research Laboratory.

“Sciaky is proud to release the new Additive Manufacturing video,” said Mike Riesen, General Manager of Sciaky, Inc. “This technology, which has been called ‘game-changing’ by Lockheed Martin, continues to push boundaries for manufacturers looking to save time and money over traditional manufacturing and prototyping processes.”
