Sciaky, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries (PSI) and provider of metal additive manufacturing (AM) solutions has announced that EWI has purchased one of its electron beam additive manufacturing (EBAM) systems. EWI is a North American engineering and technology organization dedicated to developing, testing and implementing advanced manufacturing technologies for industry.

Sciaky and EWI will work together to produce prototype parts for high-tech manufacturers in a variety of industries across the United States. Both companies plan to co-market their metal 3D printing capabilities to the marketplace.      

“Sciaky is very excited to work with an innovator like EWI,” said Mike Riesen, general manager of Sciaky Inc. “Beyond simply selling an EBAM system to EWI, Sciaky will collaborate with EWI to advance and promote EBAM technology into mutual fields of interest. New applications and solutions will surely be discovered under this exciting partnership.”

Sciaky’s EBAM systems can produce parts ranging from 8 inches to 19 feet (203 mm to 5.79 meters) in length, but can also manufacture smaller and larger parts, depending on the application. The deposition process provides gross deposition rates ranging from 7 to 20 lbs (3.18 to 9.07 kg) of metal per hour. With a dual wirefeed option, two different metal alloys can be combined into a single melt pool to create custom alloy parts or ingots, and the mixture ratio of the two materials can be changed to create “graded” parts or structures.
