Sciaky, Inc., (Chicago, IL) a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI) has announced it will deliver a state-of-the-art electron beam (EB) welding machine to Michigan-based systems integrator and solutions manufacturer Merrill.
Merrill’s end-to-end offerings include solutions for design, build, test and deliver stages, along with the in-house expertise to design and manufacture intricate parts and prototypes through high-volume production. They provide solutions for a wide range of industries, including aerospace, defense, chemical, energy, oil & gas, transportation, and mining.
Sciaky’s internal moving EB welding gun offers versatility, and its multi-axis gun motion operates at half the chamber volume of fixed/external gun systems – this provides beam access for unusual joint configurations and significantly simplifies part tooling.
“Sciaky is excited to provide our world-class EB welding technology to a forward-thinking solutions provider like Merrill,” said Scott Phillips, president and CEO of Sciaky, Inc. “The results-driven pros at Merrill will no doubt take advantage of Sciaky’s exceptional EB weld strength and its high-precision repeatability to deliver incredible results, over and over again.”
Sciaky’s welding equipment meets rigid military specifications to manufacture items such as airframes, landing gear, jet engines, guided missiles and vehicle parts.
