Sciaky Inc.

Based in Chicago Illinois and operational since 1937, Sciaky launched its groundbreaking Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (AM) process in 2009 with the objective to save manufacturers time and money on the production of large-scale, high-value metal parts and prototypes.

Profile Description

Today, Sciaky’s AM process remains the only large-scale, fully-programmable means of achieving near-net shape parts made of titanium, tantalum, inconel and other high-value metals. Sciaky’s AM process has a standard build envelope of 19′ x 4′ x 4′ (L x W x H), allowing manufacturers to produce very large parts and structures, with virtually no waste. Starting with a 3D model from a CAD program, Sciaky’s fully-articulated, moving electron beam welding gun deposits metal (via wire; also known as Electron Beam Free Form Fabrication), layer by layer, until the part is built and ready for minor finish machining. Deposition rates typically range from 7 to 20 lbs/hr, depending upon part geometry and the material selected. Sciaky is present in Italy and internationally jn over 30 markets through a network of agents that can be contacted through its website.

EBAM® technology’s unique features provide manufacturers with a range of benefits, including reduced material waste, shorter lead times, and increased design flexibility. By utilizing wire feedstock instead of powder, EBAM® minimizes waste and cost, leading to significant cost savings and sustainability advantages. Moreover, the ability to fabricate near-net shape parts reduces the need for costly post-processing and machining, optimizing production time and costs.

Sciaky’s EBAM® technology has enabled manufacturers to realize complex geometries and lightweight designs that were previously unattainable using traditional manufacturing methods. With the freedom to create intricate internal structures and consolidated assemblies, engineers can now optimize part performance and reduce weight, resulting in improved fuel efficiency and enhanced overall functionality. Sciaky’s dedicated team of engineers continue to push the boundaries of what is possible with EBAM®, exploring new materials, enhancing deposition rates, and expanding the size of build envelopes to cater to evolving industry demands.
