Based in Chicago Illinois and operational since 1937, Sciaky launched its groundbreaking Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (AM) process in 2009 with the objective to save manufacturers time and money on the production of large-scale, high-value metal parts and prototypes. Today, Sciaky’s AM process remains the only large-scale, fully-programmable means of achieving near-net shape parts made of titanium, tantalum, inconel and other high-value metals. Sciaky’s AM process has a standard build envelope of 19' x 4' x 4' (L x W x H), allowing manufacturers to produce very large parts and structures, with virtually no waste. Starting with a 3D model from a CAD program, Sciaky's fully-articulated, moving electron beam welding gun deposits metal (via wire; also known as Electron Beam Free Form Fabrication), layer by layer, until the part is built and ready for minor finish machining. Deposition rates typically range from 7 to 20 lbs/hr, depending upon part geometry and the material selected. Sciaky is present in Italy and internationally jn over 30 markets through a network of agents that can be contacted through its website.

Established in 1797 as a coal mining company
Owned by FAM and LindéngruppenDigital Metal Technology belongs to the global Höganäs Group, which is headquartered in Sweden and best known for its pioneering work in metal powders. There is an obvious and natural connection between 3D metal printing and the Group’s core business.
Being part of a much larger organisation guarantees the companies financial stability, and makes Digital Metal a reliable partner in the long term. It can also leverage its parent company’s worldwide presence and well-developed supply chain to ensure deliveries.
Digital Metal has developed its own unique proprietary precision ink-jet technology for making complex metallic components. It begins with an object described in a CAD file. This is materialised in its 3D printer, which works by laying down powdered metal in thin layers, interspersed with a special ink/glue.
Once complete, the object is sintered for strength. The result is a metal component or part with high resolution and tolerance.
An additional third step can be introduced to refine surface equality.
Materials Digital Metal’s components are currently predominantly made from stainless steel. However, other materials such as titanium, silver and copper are close to commercialisation."

Concept Laser GmbH is an independent company based in Lichtenfels, Germany. Since its founding in 2000, it has been a leading innovator in the field of metal laser melting with the patented LaserCUSING® technology across many industries.The term LaserCUSING®, a combination of the C from CONCEPT Laser and the word FUSING (to fully melt), describes the technology: the fusing process generates components layer by layer using 3D CAD data.
In the metal laser melting process, standard commercial batch materials in powder form are locally fused by a high-energy fibre laser. During the laser process, the one-component metal powder is completely fused. Following setting, the material solidifies. This means that the finished component is provided with almost ideal material properties.The additive manufacturing technology allows the production of complex component geometries without tools to create parts that are difficult or even impossible to achieve through conventional manufacturing.
