Sciaky to Deliver Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) System to Burloak Technologies

The EBAM system will be used to 3D print large metal parts for aerospace, defense and other industries.

Sciaky, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries and providers of metal additive manufacturing (AM) solutions has announced that it will deliver an Electron Beam ADditive Manufacturing (EBAM) system to Burloak Technologies, a division of Samson, Son and Co.

A supplier of additive manufacturing solutions for clients worldwide, Burloak Technologies delivers high-quality, lightweight, fully functional additive manufactured parts for a range of industries including space, aerospace, defense, energy, medical, automotive and transportation.

“Using traditional subtractive processes, such as forging and machining, the production of titanium parts of this size could take one year while generating a significant amount of waste,” says Peter Adams, co-founder and president of Burloak Technologies. “Our EBAM 110 system will allow us to manufacture the same large-scale titanium structural parts in a matter of days. We are already engaged with several aerospace end-users who have started the qualification process with us.”

A July 2019 delivery is scheduled for this EBAM system.

Sciaky’s EBAM systems can produce parts ranging from 8" to 19 ft. (203 mm to 5.79 m) in length. The deposition-based system provides deposition rats ranging from 7 to 25 lbs/hr. (3.18 to 11.34 kg/hr.). The Interlayer Real-time Imaging and Sensing System ensures quality and control by sensing and digitally self-adjusting with precision and repeatability. This closed-loop system helps to deliver consistent part geometry, mechanical properties, microstructure and metal chemistry, the company says.
