Established in 1939, Chicago-based Sciaky provides groundbreaking direct manufacturing (DM) solution to save manufacturers time and money on the production of large, high-value metal parts and prototypes. The Sciaky's DM solution, which is based on additive manufacturing principles, is a large-scale, fully programmable means of achieving near-net shape parts made of titanium, tantalum, inconel and other high-value metals. It can make functional prototypes and production parts up to 19' x 4' x 4' (579 x 122 x 122 cm).

How does Sciaky's DM work?

Starting with a 3D model from a CAD program, Sciaky's fully-articulated, moving electron beam welding gun deposits metal, layer by layer, until the part is complete and ready for finish machining. Deposition rates typically range from 7 to 20 lbs per hour, depending upon part geometry and the material selected.

Over the past two years, Sciaky's DM solution has been used by the Department of Defense (DoD), U.S. Air Force, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, DARPA and Penn State University's Applied Research Laboratory.

"This technology, which has been called 'game-changing' by Lockheed Martin, continues to push boundaries for manufacturers looking to save time and money over traditional manufacturing and prototyping processes." said Mike Riesen, General Manager of Sciaky, Inc.
