Sciaky 110 EBAM system.

Sciaky enters ambitious R&D initiative with Aubert & Duval and Airbus, piloted by the Saint Exupery Institute for Research in Technology

Sciaky, Inc., announced today that it has entered into an ambitious research and development (R&D) initiative with Aubert & Duval and Airbus, driven by the Saint Exupery Institute for Research in Technology (IRT). The Production Engineering laboratory of the National School of Engineering in Tarbes, France will serve as an academic partner for this project, also known as the Metallic Advanced Materials for Aeronautics (MAMA) project.

The goal is to couple traditional metallurgy – high-power closed die forging - with emerging wirefed metal 3D printing techniques – in this case, Sciaky's groundbreaking Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) process – to develop new processes for manufacturing titanium alloys aircraft parts. In this first phase, the project has a global funding of €4,2 M (just under $4.8M USD) of which 50% are supported by the French State as part of the "Investing in the Future" program (PIA - Programme Investissement d'Avenir), the other 50% being funded by its industrial partners.

"Sciaky is proud to work with the Saint Exupery IRT, Aubert & Duval and Airbus on this exciting project," said Scott Phillips, President and CEO of Sciaky, Inc. "Industrial metal additive manufacturing technology continues to break new ground every day, and Sciaky is committed to keeping EBAM at the forefront of this movement."

As the most widely scalable metal additive manufacturing solution in the industry (in terms of work envelope), Sciaky's EBAM systems can produce parts ranging from 8 inches (203 mm) to 19 feet (5.79 meters) in length. EBAM is also the fastest deposition process in the metal additive manufacturing market, with gross deposition rates up to 25 lbs. (11.34 kg) of metal per hour. EBAM brings quality and control together with IRISS – the Interlayer Real-time Imaging and Sensing System, which is the only real-time adaptive control system in the metal 3D printing market that can sense and digitally self-adjust metal deposition with precision and repeatability. This innovative closed-loop control is the primary reason that Sciaky's EBAM 3D printing process delivers consistent part geometry, mechanical properties, microstructure, and metal chemistry, from the first part to the last.
