Concurrent Technologies Corporation and Sciaky, Inc., Enter Strategic Partnership to Expand Metal Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) Offerings

Johnstown, PA, June 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) and Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI), are pleased to announce that they have entered a strategic partnership to support a growing demand for high-quality, large-scale additively manufactured metal parts.

CTC has a 30-year history in metals and metal processing solutions and is well known for providing innovative laser powder bed fusion, hybrid additive manufacturing, and cold spray solutions to its clients. This strategic partnership enables CTC to expand its offerings to include Sciaky’s Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM®). EBAM is a one-of-a-kind metal additive manufacturing technology that delivers parts faster, with less material waste, reduced machining time, and shorter time-to-market.

Large-scale forgings and castings can take many, many months to complete. EBAM, on the other hand, can produce high quality, large-scale metal structures, up to 19 feet in length, made of titanium, tantalum, and nickel-based alloys in a matter of days, with very little material waste. In addition, the EBAM process can be used in any phase of the product life cycle: from rapid prototypes and production parts to repair and remanufacturing applications.

“We are extremely pleased to announce this newly formed strategic partnership with Sciaky,” said Edward J. Sheehan, Jr., CTC President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are grateful for this opportunity to collaborate with the talented team at Sciaky. Our clients will realize numerous benefits thanks to this arrangement.”

Scott Phillips, Sciaky President and Chief Executive Officer, adds, “Sciaky is excited to work with CTC and help educate its clients about the real-world benefits of EBAM technology. When compared to traditional forging methods, EBAM offers significant competitive advantages for customers all over the world by drastically reducing production time, waste, and costs associated with manufacturing large, high-value metal parts.”

Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) is an independent, nonprofit, applied scientific research and development professional services organization. Together with our affiliates, Enterprise Ventures Corporation and CTC Foundation, we leverage research, development, test and evaluation work to provide transformative, full lifecycle solutions. To best serve our clients’ needs, we offer the complete ability to fully design, develop, test, prototype and build. We support our clients’ core mission objectives with customized solutions and strive to exceed expectations. For more information about CTC, visit www.ctc.com.

Adaptive Beamformer: An HLS Optimization Case Study with SLX FPGA

Sponsored by Silexica

Learn more about how SLX FPGA provides a productivity and efficiency boost when using high-level synthesis (HLS) to implement FPGA applications in C/ C++, through automated analysis and optimization. In this beamforming example, SLX FPGA is able to achieve lower latency and cut development time from weeks down to minutes compared to hand-optimization for similar cost of resources.
