Sciaky Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, and a leading provider of electron beam welding systems and metal 3D printing solutions, has launched the EBAM-53 Machine for Laboratory and Research Facilities. This new product is targeted at users who need to conduct research on a smaller scale with the future intent of moving onto a larger, traditional Sciaky EBAM system. The first EBAM-53 will ship to a customer site before the end of 2023, and will be offered to the industry starting January 2024.

The EBAM-53 is reportedly the first and only wire-fed DED machine to combine affordability and the capability to manufacture and test larger scale-parts for land, sea, air, and space applications.

The EBAM-53 is a well-suited platform for materials research laboratory settings. This system has a smaller space requirement and a lower cost, but features all of the same Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing equipment as the larger-scale EBAM systems for process optimization and materials development. The new system will use the same electron beam generator, as well as the same sensors, computers, and process control software – making research directly scalable into the larger production-ready EBAM models.

Sciaky’s EBAM-53 will fit into laboratory and R&D settings with ease, and will ship in standard sea containers, in one piece. It will feature a building envelope of 26 cubed inches (635mm³) – allowing for test coupons, smaller demonstrators, and geometry trial parts. Like all previously delivered EBAM systems, the new system will feature the IRISS process control software. Rotary and tilt positioners are available too.

“This has been a goal of Sciaky for years. We have been asked numerous times to offer a system appropriate for a research environment,” said Scott Phillips, President at Sciaky, Inc. “We can now answer this part of the industry’s demand. With the EBAM-53, users can conduct meaningful research and development that can easily migrate to larger production-scale systems in the future.”
