Airbus Adds EB Machine to Print Large Titanium Structural PartsFebruary 1, 2017
Sciaky, Inc., Chicago, IL, announced that Airbus planned to take delivery of an EBAM (electron-beam additive-manufacturing) 110 system (70- by 47- by 63-in. work envelope) in December 2016, to produce large titanium structural parts. Sciaky’s EBAM process combines computer-aided design, additive-manufacturing processing principles, and an electron-beam heat source. A fully-articulated, moving electron-beam gun deposits titanium via wire feedstock, layer by layer, until the part reaches near-net shape. From there, the part requires heattreatment and post-production machining.
Sciaky brings quality and control together in one step with its IRISS interlayer real-time imaging and sensing system, which can sense and digitally self-adjust deposition precisely and repeatably. This closed-loop control ensures consistent part geometry, mechanical properties, microstructure and composition.
