Sciaky, a provider of metal additive manufacturing solutions, has introduced patented closed-loop controlled called IRISS (Interlayer Real-Time Imaging & Sensing System) for its EBAM systems.
According to Sciaky, IRISS provides consistent process control for part geometry, mechanical properties, microstructure, and metal chemistry for large-scale 3D printed parts. This innovative closed-loop control monitors the metal deposition process in real time and makes adjustments to the process parameters that compensate for variation throughout the build process. EBAM systems utilize wire feedstock, which is available in a variety of metals such as titanium, tantalum, niobium, tungsten, molybdenum, Inconel, aluminum, stainless steels, nickel alloys, and more.
“Sciaky’s IRISS closed-loop control is in a class by itself,” said Mike Riesen, general manager of Sciaky, Inc. “It is a big reason why EBAM is the most advanced metal additive manufacturing processes in the market for large-scale parts.”
