Sciaky, Inc. is a provider of an innovative form of additive manufacturing. Its Direct Manufacturing (DM) technology achieves near net-shape parts using state-of-the art electron beam welding. Its equipment produces production parts and functional prototypes at a fraction of the cost of traditional manufacturing methods.
Starting with a 3D model from a CAD program, the equipment’s fully-articulated, moving electron beam gun deposits metal, layer by layer, until the part is ready for finish machining. Depending on the part being manufactured, deposition rates can range from 15 to 40 pounds of metal per hour. Check out the video.
In addition, Sciaky recently expanded its contract welding services to include a wider range of capabilities. Parts and assemblies ranging up to 24-feet in length and down to the size of a tiny dime can now be affordably welded by the assortment of electron beam welding chambers available at its Chicago facility.
