Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc., and a leading provider of metal additive manufacturing solutions, has reported that its Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) technology process has deposited 40 lbs. (18.14 kg) of titanium per hour – the highest deposition rate in the world for industrial metal 3D printing.

The Saint Exupéry Institute for Research in Technology (IRT), located in France, achieved EBAM’s high deposition rate while conducting work for its Metallic Advanced Materials for Aeronautics (MAMA) project. Launched in 2019, one of MAMA’s initial goals was to combine die forging with metal 3D printing to develop a new process for manufacturing titanium aircraft parts. Sciaky’s EBAM has now deposited over 330 lbs. (150 kg) of Ti-6AI-4V (titanium) for three different MAMA applications. Airbus and Aubert & Duval are also key process contributors for this particular initiative of the MAMA project.

“Sciaky is excited about EBAM’s new deposition rate milestone,” said Scott Phillips, President and CEO of Sciaky, Inc. “We are committed to discovering new applications for EBAM that will help manufacturers save significant time and money on part production, as well as improve part quality.”

Sciaky’s EBAM systems are able to produce parts up to 19 feet (5.79 meters) in length. EBAM ties its quality and control together with IRISS (Interlayer Real-time Imaging and Sensing System) – a real-time adaptive control system for metal 3D printing that can sense and digitally self-adjust metal deposition with precision and repeatability. This closed-loop control is the primary reason Sciaky’s EBAM 3D printing process is able to deliver consistent part geometry, mechanical properties, microstructure, and metal chemistry.

Sciaky’s EBAM industrial metal 3D printing solution is approved for applications on land, and sea, and in air, and space.
