Sciaky Adopts Siemens PLM Software to Support Its EBAM Process in the Metal Additive Manufacturing Market
Chicago-based metal additive manufacturing solutions provider Sciaky, Inc., which is a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI), introduced its innovative metal Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) process back in 2009, and made its EBAM machines available to large companies a few years later. The technology has been used often in high-performance applications, such as making a titanium propulsion tank for Lockheed Martin, large titanium airplane parts for Airbus, and even submarine fuel tanks. Now Sciaky has announced that it will join the Siemens PLM Software Solution Partner Program, in order to support its industry-leading solution.
Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Digital Factory Division, is one of the top providers of software solutions in the world, and it works with companies in order to create and deliver new opportunities for manufacturers to “realize innovation” and drive the industry’s digital transformation. In addition to PLM software, it also provides manufacturing operations management (MOM) software.
Vynce Paradise, the Director of Advanced Part Manufacturing for Siemens PLM Software, said, “Siemens PLM Software is committed to creating partnerships that can add value to the business of our customers. We are pleased to work with Sciaky as they use the latest multi-axis deposition technology we have developed within NX software to support their EBAM 3D metal printing systems.”
EBAM offers a highly scalable metal 3D printing envelope, and Sciaky notes that it is the fastest deposition process on the market, able to reduce lead times and material costs by up to 80%. Sciacky’s EBAM machines can print parts from 8 inches to 19 feet in length, and its gross deposition rates range from 7 to 20 pounds of metal an hour. Additionally, thanks to its IRISS (Interlayer Real-time Imaging and Sensing System), a patented Closed-Loop Control, it’s the only real-time adaptive control system on the metal 3D printer market that is able to sense and digitally adjust metal deposition on its own. The IRISS provides customers with consistent mechanical properties, metal chemistry, and part geometry.
By becoming a Software and Technology partner, Sciaky will adopt Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) software, in order to offer its existing and future customers in the metal 3D printing market a quality additive manufacturing software solution which integrates with technology that companies worldwide use to not only make better products, but also augment their product development decision-making.
“Sciaky is excited to join Siemens PLM Software’s partner community. The strength of our two organizations working together will deliver significant value to our customers,” said Bob Phillips, the Vice President of Marketing at Sciaky.
Siemens has been increasing its focus on additive manufacturing, and its PLM solutions represent one strong area for development and collaboration.
