Sciaky, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI) and a leading supplier of industrial metal 3D printing solutions, received a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award from NASA. The objective of the SBIR is to enhance Sciaky’s Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) process with new machine-learning algorithms that automatically identify and eliminate defects with titanium (Ti-6Al-4V) 3D-printed parts and structures.

“Sciaky is proud to partner with NASA to work on enhancing process control for titanium 3D printing,” said Scott Phillips, President and CEO of Sciaky, Inc. “This new capability will further solidify why EBAM is at the forefront of industrial additive manufacturing advancements.”

The new machine-learning algorithms will utilize Sciaky’s patented Interlayer Real-time Imaging and Sensing System, also known as IRISS, to monitor titanium deposition, identify anomalies, and fix them. These intuitive adaptive control features will help manufacturers deliver consistent results, from the first part to the last.

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 solution in the metal additive manufacturing market, with gross deposition rates up to 25 lbs. (11.34 kg) of metal per hour.
