Sciaky, Inc. Releases New Additive Manufacturing Video That Highlights the
Technology Behind Its Exclusive, Groundbreaking Direct Manufacturing Solution
CHICAGO, Jan. 7, 2013
CHICAGO, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips
Service Industries (PSI) and leading provider of additive manufacturing
solutions, announced today that it has launched a new Direct Manufacturing
With the objective to save manufacturers time and money on the production of
large, high-value metal parts and prototypes, Sciaky launched its
groundbreaking DM solution, which is based on additive manufacturing
principles, in 2009. Today, Sciaky's DM solution remains the only large-scale,
fully programmable means of achieving near-net shape parts made of titanium,
tantalum, inconel and other high-value metals, ranging up to 19 feet in
length, 4 feet in width and 4 feet high (19'x4'x4'). The solution combines
computer-aided design (CAD), Sciaky's state-of-the art electron beam welding
technology and layer-additive processing. Starting with a 3D model from a CAD
program, Sciaky's fully articulated, moving electron beam welding gun deposits
metal, layer by layer, until the part is complete and ready for finish
machining. Deposition rates typically range from 7 to 20 pounds per hour,
depending upon part geometry and the material selected.
Over the past two years, Sciaky's DM solution has been at the heart of several
key advanced research and development programs with the Department of Defense
(DoD), U.S. Air Force, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, DARPA and Penn State
University's Applied Research Laboratory.
"Sciaky is proud to release the new Direct Manufacturing video," said Mike
Riesen, General Manager of Sciaky, Inc. "This technology, which has been
called 'game-changing' by Lockheed Martin, continues to push boundaries for
manufacturers looking to save time and money over traditional manufacturing
and prototyping processes."
