Sciaky specializes in large vacuum chamber EB welding systems with internal moving guns. These systems use low voltage and high power, and are suitable for large-scale parts. Evobeam, on the other hand, specializes in high throughput, small vacuum chamber EB welding systems with external guns. These systems use low voltage and low power, and are suitable for rapid production of small-scale parts.

Under the terms of the agreement, Sciaky and Evobeam will co-market and co-sell each other's EB welding technology, providing an range of EB welding solutions for customers internationally. The agreement includes Sciaky's electron beam direct manufacturing (EBDM) process, which remains the only large-scale, fully programmable means of achieving near-net shape parts.

"Sciaky is very excited about the partnership with Evobeam," said Mike Riesen, general manager of Sciaky Inc. "By combining forces, Sciaky and Evobeam offer a wide range of proven, cost-effective EB welding and EB additive manufacturing solutions that can't be found anywhere else."
