EBAM Drives Innovation for Many Applications and Industries

The titanium propulsion tank shown is 16'' in diameter.Although “big metal” aerospace applications drove our early process development, Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) is beneficial for a wide range of industries and applications where reducing costs and lead times of metal part production is a top priority.

In fact, Sciaky’s EBAM process produces the highest metal build rate and quality in the additive manufacturing (AM) market.

The best material candidates for EBAM applications are high-value metals with long lead times (for raw material) that can be manufactured with wire feedstock.

Here are some examples of industries and metal applications that EBAM is ideal for:

  • Aircraft frames, structures, and parts
  • Jet Engines
  • Rocket / Missile / Propulsion
  • Oil & Gas Equipment
  • Turbine Blades for Energy Production
  • Nuclear Components
  • Refractory Metal Components
  • Ballistic Materials (for military vehicles and tanks)
  • Medical Equipment
  • Cladding of Critical Surfaces for Corrosion or Thermal Barrier Protection
  • Industrial Pump Components
  • Power Generation
  • Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment
  • Tooling Repair and Reconditioning
  • Marine Propulsion
