Large parts, quick turnaround.
Burloak Technologies is taking delivery of an EBAM 110 system from Sciaky Inc. in July 2019 that will allow the additive manufacturing specialist in Dundas, Ont. to produce large-scale titanium structural parts in days.
“Using traditional subtractive processes, such as forging and machining, the production of titanium parts of this size could take one year while generating a significant amount of waste,” said Peter Adams, co-founder and president of Burloak Technologies, a division of Samuel, Son and Co. Ltd.
Sciaky’s metal 3D printing system produces parts ranging from 8 in. (203 mm) to 19 ft. (5.79 m) in length. Electron beam additive manufacturing is also the fastest deposition process in the metal additive manufacturing market, with gross rates ranging from 7 to 25 lb. (3.18 to 11.34 kg) of metal per hour.
Burloak Technologies produces parts for a range of industries including space, aerospace, defense, energy, medical, automotive and transportation.
Sciaky Inc., a Chicago-based subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries Inc., makes metal additive manufacturing systems.
