Commerce in the Additive Manufacturing industry: Sciaky and Evolve’s activities
Given the price of additive manufacturing systems, the commercialization of a system often goes through several stages, on the other hand, attests to the quality of the said system and increases the brand awareness.
Sciaky & Evolve did not only succeed in selling one of their respective machines but mark a milestone in their AM activities.
Sciaky to provide its EBAM system to FAMAero, a Michigan-based metal 3D printed parts provider
FAMAero (Future Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace) will exploit Sciaky’s Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM®) system to provide manufacturers with 3D printed parts and prototypes. Aerospace, defense, oil & gas, as well as sea exploration industries, where there is an abundance of applications for large-scale metal parts will be the main sectors that will benefit from FAMAero’s services.
Sciaky’s EBAM system is very wide in terms of work envelope. It can produce parts ranging from 8 inches (203 mm) to 19 feet (5.79 meters) in length. EBAM also offers a fast deposition process in the metal additive manufacturing market, with gross deposition rates ranging from seven to 25 lbs. (3.18 to 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.
Evolve Additive Solutions delivers its first STEP System under Alpha Development Program
Last April, we announced the launch of Evolve Additive Solutions, a Stratasys company which specializes in the Selective Toner Electrophotographic Process (STEP) technology. The company announced today the shipment of its first STEP technology.
Even though the name of the user has not been revealed, we know that the system will be used in a manufacturing environment versus a laboratory setting and serve for various tests.
As a reminder, STEP, designed for automated manufacturing and factory-floor integration, allows users to utilize production-grade thermoplastics for volume manufacturing applications across multiple industries, including consumer, automotive, industrial and medical. The solution combines Evolve’s own proprietary technology with electrophotography to produce 3D printed parts that meet or exceed the attributes of traditionally manufactured parts.
We can’t wait to discover the first results of the capacities of this system.
