Sciaky, Inc. to Sponsor and Chair the 2014 Additive Aerospace Summit in Los Angeles, CA

The event is the only executive conference focused on Additive Manufacturing for the aerospace industry

Chicago, Illinois – Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries (PSI) and leading providers of additive manufacturing solutions to the aerospace and defense industries, announced today that it will sponsor and chair the second annual Additive Aerospace Summit in Los Angeles, CA. The event is the only dedicated executive conference focused on additive manufacturing for the aerospace industry.

The summit includes four sessions that will delve into the technical challenges, adoption process, standards and qualifications, as well as growth strategies for companies that want to remain competitive in the evolving aerospace additive manufacturing/3D printing sector. Executives from Boeing, Airbus, Lockheed Martin, NASA, Pratt & Whitney, Raytheon and GKN Aerospace are scheduled as featured speakers.

As the summit chair, Sciaky has been responsible for many key metal 3D printing/additive manufacturing advances in the aerospace and defense industries. Its groundbreaking Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) process has been a commercial success and key driver of several high profile research and development (R&D) projects involving the Department of Defense (DoD), U.S. Air Force, Lockheed Martin, DARPA and Boeing. Sciaky’s EBAM technology allows manufacturers to save significant time and costs on the production of large-scale parts and prototypes, up to 19 feet in length, made of virtually any metal, including high-value refractory alloys like titanium and tantalum.   

“Sciaky is proud to sponsor and chair the 2014 Additive Aerospace Summit,” said Mike Riesen, general manager of Sciaky, Inc. “Additive manufacturing and 3D printing is going to play a major role in the aerospace industry for the foreseeable future, and Sciaky is firmly committed to further EBAM innovation.”

The 2014 Additive Aerospace Summit takes place November 3-6 at the Downtown Los Angeles Doubletree Hilton. For more information, visit http://www.informationforecastnet.com/events/add-aero.

Sciaky, Inc. to Provide Turnkey Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing System to Lockheed Martin Space Systems

EBAM system will help Lockheed Martin reduce time & cost on the production of titanium propulsion tanks

Chicago, Illinois – Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI) and provider of large-scale additive manufacturing solutions, announced today that it recently received a purchase order from Lockheed Martin Space Systems to provide a turnkey electron beam additive manufacturing (EBAM) system. The EBAM system will help Lockheed Martin reduce time and cost on the production of titanium propulsion tanks.   

vx-110On July 10, Sciaky announced the availability of EBAM systems to the marketplace. This is the second multi-million dollar order from a major global manufacturing company since the announcement. In addition, Sciaky is working with over a dozen other companies and entities within the aerospace, defense and manufacturing sectors to provide EBAM systems for their unique needs.

Lockheed Martin Space Systems designs, develops, tests, manufactures and operates a full spectrum of advanced-technology systems for national security, civil and commercial customers. Chief products include human space flight systems; a full range of remote sensing, navigation, meteorological and communications satellites and instruments; space observatories and interplanetary spacecraft; laser radar; fleet ballistic missiles; and missile defense systems.

Sciaky’s EBAM process combines computer-aided design (CAD), electron beam manufacturing technology and layer-additive processing. 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 reaches near-net shape. From there, the near-net shape part requires minor post-production machining. The 110” x 110” x 110” (L x W x H) build envelope of the EBAM system will allow Lockheed Martin to produce large titanium parts, with virtually no waste.

“Sciaky is proud to partner with a progressive leader like Lockheed Martin Space Systems” said Mike Riesen, general manager of Sciaky, Inc. “Sciaky’s EBAM technology will help Lockheed Martin significantly reduce material costs, lead times, and machining times.”

Besides offering innovative additive manufacturing solutions for metal parts, Sciaky provides state-of-the-art electron beam and advanced arc welding systems, as well as job shop/contract welding services, for manufacturers in the aerospace, defense, automotive, and healthcare industries. Sciaky’s welding equipment meets rigid military specifications to manufacture items such as airframes, landing gear, jet engines, guided missiles and vehicle parts.

Sciaky’s Innovative Additive Manufacturing Systems Available to the Market Starting September 2014

Chicago, Illinois – Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries (PSI) and providers of additive manufacturing solutions for large-scale, high-value metal parts, announced today that it will be offering its groundbreaking electron beam additive manufacturing (EBAM) systems for purchase, with accelerated delivery opportunities available as early as September 1, 2014.

Sciaky has predominantly offered its exclusive additive manufacturing process as a service-only option to manufacturers who required assistance to produce large-scale prototypes and production parts, up to 19 feet in length, made of high-value metals like titanium, tantalum, stainless steel, and Inconel. The technology has been a key driver of several high profile research and development (R&D) projects involving the U.S. Air Force, Lockheed Martin, DARPA and Boeing.  

The EBAM process, which has been marketed as Direct Manufacturing (DM), combines computer-aided design (CAD), 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 (via wire feedstock), layer by layer, until the part reaches near-net shape. From there, the near-net shape part requires minor post-production machining.

Deposition rates of Sciaky’s EBAM process range from 7 to 20 lbs/hr, depending upon part geometry and the material selected. The build envelope can reach 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. As a result, manufacturers can drastically reduce material costs, lead times and machining time, when compared to traditional manufacturing methods.

“Manufacturers, for the first time, will be able to utilize Sciaky’s revolutionary additive manufacturing technology to produce production parts and prototypes in their own facility,” said Mike Riesen, general manager of Sciaky, Inc. “The possibilities are endless.”
