Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Services Industries, Inc. (PSI) and world leader in metal 3D printing solutions, is home to the many rapidly, many cost-effective 3D printing system in the market for sizeable-scale metal parts. Back in February the company adopted closed loop control innovation for their exclusive Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM™) machines, additional advancing the company in the market. Now, Sciaky announces the astounding hand they played in reducing time, waste and cost for making mission-critical titanium propellant tanks for satellites.
