Euromold 2015 Electron beam additive manufacturing system prints parts up to 5.8 m in length
United States - Sciaky, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries (PSI) and leading provider of metal additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, will highlight its new Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (Ebam) systems and expansive AM services at Euromold 2015.
The expanded lineup of Ebam 3D printing systems includes new options for medium, large, and extra-large part applications, making Ebam the most widely scalable metal 3D printing solution on the market (in terms of work envelope) for parts ranging from 203 mm to 5.79 m in length, the company claims.
Ebam is also said to be the fastest deposition process in the metal 3D printing market, with gross deposition rates ranging from 3.18 to 9.07 kg of metal per hour. Plus, with a dual wirefeed option, you can combine two different metal alloys into a single melt pool to create “custom alloy” parts or ingots. In addition, the mixture ratio of the two materials can be changed to create “graded” parts or structures.
Sciaky’s Ebam technology utilises wire feedstock, which is available in materials such as titanium, tantalum, niobium, tungsten, molybdenum, Inconel, aluminium, stainless steels, nickel alloys, and more.
“Sciaky is excited to exhibit at Euromold,” said Mike Riesen, general manager of Sciaky, Inc. “Our new Ebam systems and world-class AM services provide a wide variety of options for manufacturers around the world to save significant time and money on the production of metal parts and prototypes.”
