Abstract
The proposed scope of work is intended to comprise efforts to implement a production capable Electron Beam Direct Manufacturing (EBDM)system intended to produce parts with sufficient quality and affordability to meet Air Force program requirements. The scope deals not only with the EBDM process specifically but the entire supply chain which is involved with delivering finished titanium aerospace structures, including raw material suppliers, heat treating, inspection, and machining operations. BENEFIT: Success of this Phase II project will result in an established processing plan which can be immediately used to begin producing titanium aerospace structures at reduced cost and lead time compared to conventional methods. Sciaky''s approach is unique in that not only are the technical aspects of producing parts using EBDM addressed a commercialization plan that would enable the rapid growth of a supply base for EBDM parts will result as well.
