“This new facility is the first of its kind in North America to offer large-scale additive manufacturing (AM) production coupled with a robust aerospace quality management system,” says Brian Neff, Sintavia’s chairman and chief executive officer. “As we grow, it will serve as a template for future vertically aligned advanced manufacturing facilities around the United States and the world.”
Sintavia’s new facility houses more than $25 million of advanced-manufacturing equipment including medium- and large-scale metal printers, electrical-discharge machines, post-processing equipment, wet-booths and multiple furnaces. Building features include separate manufacturing rooms segregated by alloy, large-scale powder-management system, uninterruptable power supply, inert-gas farm and a final production-acceptance quality-control room.
The new facility can produce thousands of parts representing in excess of $100 million of AM revenue annually, according to Sintavia officials, who note that the expansion (the company retains an R&D facility at its former headquarters in Davie, FL) is anticipated to create more than 130 new jobs for skilled employees and support staff. Grand-opening celebrants included Sumitomo Corp., a growth-equity-investment partner of Sintavia.
