3D Metal Printing For All

Posted on Categories Metals, TechnologyTags , , , , , ,

Sciaky has been the leader in 3D metal printing since the birth of the technology in 2009. But, only DARPA, Boeing, Lockheed Martin and the U.S. Air Force have been able to utilize the technology. That is all going to change on September 1st, 2014.

The Electronic Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) technology, also known as 3D printing allows manufacturers of metal parts and materials to produce specific parts with efficiency and accuracy. The technology utilizes a CAD program, a software to three dimensionalize an object, and then it “prints” the desired part. Layer by layer, this technology builds what you want to your exact specifications.

“Starting with a 3D model from a CAD program, Sciaky’s fully-articulated, moving electron beam gun deposits metal, layer by layer, until the part is complete,” Sciaky explains. “Depending on the part being manufactured, deposition rates can range up to 250 cubic inches per hour.”

This technology is no longer going to be utilized by the select few, these machines will be available for any large businesses who can afford it. And by no means going to be a cheap technology, but the efficiency and precision of this machine alone, is worth taking a look at.

Check out a video of the EBAM technology here.
