Turnkey Electron-Beam System to Manufacture Titanium Tanks

Sunday, February 1, 2015

turnkey electron-beam additive manufacturing systemSciaky, Inc., Chicago, IL, has received a purchase order from Lockheed Martin Space Systems to provide a turnkey electron-beam additive manufacturing (EBAM) system to support the production of titanium propulsion tanks. Starting with a 3D model from a CAD program, Sciaky’s fully articulated, moving electron-beam gun deposits metal via wire feedstock, layer by layer, until the part reaches near-net shape. From there, the part requires minor post-production machining.

The 110- by 110- by 110-in. build envelope of the EBAM system will allow Lockheed Martin to produce large titanium parts, with virtually no waste.
