Sciaky, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI) and provider of metal additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, will provide an Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) system to FAMAero, a privately-owned metal 3D printed parts bureau located in Fenton, Michigan. FAMAero, which is an abbreviation for Future Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace, will leverage Sciaky’s EBAM technology to offer fast and affordable large-scale 3D-printed parts and prototypes to manufacturers seeking to reduce production time and costs associated with traditional manufacturing processes. These services are expected to be used by customers in aerospace, defense, oil & gas, and sea exploration industries, where there is an abundance of applications for large-scale metal parts.

The custom EBAM system ordered by FAMAero will feature a nominal part envelope of 146" × 62" × 62" (3,708 × 1,575 × 1,575 mm). With this type of scalability, FAMAero will be able to produce metal parts more than 12 ft. in length (roughly 3.7 m).

“FAMAero is well-positioned to be North America’s go-to source for fast and affordable metal 3D printed parts and prototypes,” says Scott Phillips, president and CEO of Sciaky Inc. “Based on recent market dynamics, we believe FAMAero is on the cusp of a burgeoning trend in the metal 3D printing marketplace, which will undoubtedly grow globally over time.”

“FAMAero is entering the market as the first private, dedicated parts bureau in North America for large-scale 3D printed metal parts,” says Don Doyle, president of FAMAero. “Our Factory as a Service concept, combined with Sciaky’s industry-leading EBAM technology, will provide manufacturers a new avenue to significantly slash time and cost on the production of critical parts, while offering the largest build platform and selection of exotic metals to choose from in the 3D parts service market.”
