Sciaky announced it will adopt product lifecycle management (PLM) software technology from Siemens to support its Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) solution. As part of the partnership, Sciaky will offer to the metal 3D printing market Siemens’ NX software, an integrated solution for computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE), and NX Nastran software with computer-aided engineering analysis (CAE) solver technology.

With its scalable work envelope, the EBAM system can produce parts ranging from 8" (203 mm) to 19 ft. (5.79 m) in length. It is also said to be among the fastest deposition processes in the metal AM market, with gross deposition rates ranging from 7 to 20 lbs (3.18 to 9.07 kg) of metal per hour. Popular raw materials, which come in the form of wire feedstock, include titanium, tungsten, tantalum, Inconel, nickel alloys, niobium and stainless steels. The system’s Interlayer Real-time Imaging and Sensing System (IRISS) control system is designed to bring quality and control together through its real-time adaptivity, enabling it to sense and digitally self-adjust metal deposition with precision and repeatability. The closed-loop control is said to deliver consistent part geometry, mechanical properties, microstructure and metal chemistry.
