Sciaky, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries (PSI), has announced that a Japanese supplier has purchased an Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) system. This will be the first installation of the company's metal additive manufacturing system in the Asia-Pacific region. 

The Japanese supplier, who wishes to remain anonymous, will unveil details of this project in the fall of this year. The company plans to utilize the Sciaky EBAM 110 system to offer 3D printing services to its customer base, as well as for internal product development.  

“Sciaky is excited to work with this forward-thinking company,” said Bob Phillips, vice president of marketing for Sciaky. “This is an historic milestone for the metal 3D printing market in that it will offer manufacturers in the Asia-Pacific region an opportunity to take advantage of EBAM’s one-of-a-kind capabilities.”

Delivery of the Sciaky EBAM system is scheduled for January 2018.
