Sciaky, Inc., the metal additive manufacturing (AM) specialist pioneering the use of Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) 3D printing, has entered into an agreement with Farcco Tecnologia to increase sales of its 3D printers in Brazil.

In terms of scale, few 3D printer companies even come close to what Sciaky can achieve with its EBAM 3D printing systems.

Capable of rapidly 3D printing parts ranging from 8 inches (203 mm) to 19 feet (5.79 meters) in length, Sciaky’s EBAM 3D printers are some of the most in-demand machines in the industry, and have been adopted by major companies like Airbus and Lockheed Martin.

Sciaky’s EBAM technology is different to other metal additive manufacturing processes in that it deposits metal via wire feedstock (rather than powder), layer by layer, until a 3D printed part reaches near-net shape and is ready for subtractive machining.

These EBAM 3D printing systems use Sciaky’s IRISS (Interlayer Real-time Imaging & Sensing System), a patented Closed-Loop Control that provides consistent part geometry, mechanical properties, microstructure, metal chemistry, and more. It is this closed-loop control that sets the technology apart from other wire feedstock metal 3D printing processes.

As well as being able to print on a huge scale, Sciaky’s 3D printers are also capable of depositing huge amounts of material in a short space of time: up to 20 lbs of metal per hour.

Following a major business deal, Sciaky now looks set to bring its additive manufacturing systems to more customers in South America.

The 3D printing company has entered into an agreement with Farcco Tecnologia, a rapidly growing sales agent of metal 3D printing solutions and CNC machining equipment, to increase sales efforts of its EBAM solutions in the Brazilian market. It follows Sciaky’s move into the Japanese 3D printing market this time last year.

“Sciaky is excited to work with Farcco and educate the Brazilian market about the real-world benefits of EBAM technology,” said Scott Phillips, President and CEO of Sciaky. “When compared to traditional forging methods, EBAM offers significant competitive advantages for customers all over the world by drastically reducing production time, waste, and costs associated to manufacturing large, high-value metal parts.”

“Brazil's thriving aerospace, oil & gas, and mining industries are natural fits for Sciaky's EBAM metal 3D printing solutions and renowned EB welding offerings,” added Fabio Sant'Ana, CEO of Farcco Tecnologia. “It's an honor to introduce these innovative technologies to the visionaries at Brazil's leading manufacturing companies.”

Sciaky is a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries (PSI), a holding company based in Livonia, Michigan.
