Sintavia, LLC, a provider of precision metal additive manufacturing, plans to build a 55,000 square foot advanced manufacturing facility in nearby Hollywood, Florida. The new plant will also serve as the company’s headquarters, and quadruple Sintavia’s current production capacity. It is expected to be complete by mid-2018.
“With this new facility, we are excited to continue our leadership in the development of the metal AM supply chain for OEMs in precision industries,” said Brian Neff, Sintavia’s Chairman and CEO. “We will use this additional space not only to grow our existing competencies in laser and electron beam melting, but also to industrialize new technologies such as metal binder jet manufacturing.”
In addition to the company’s current manufacturing equipment and material laboratory, the new facility will house over $20M of new machinery, including larger AM equipment, an automated powder handling system, an uninterruptable power supply, an inert gas farm, and an enhanced post-processing footprint. The expansion is anticipated to bring more than 135 new jobs for skilled employees and support staff to South Florida.
Sintavia is an independent manufacturer, offering a vertically integrated, end-to-end metal AM production process. Beginning with an accredited in-house laboratory to verify powder quality, to post-processing technology and non-destructive testing of final components, Sintavia is positioned to supply serially manufactured components with guaranteed quality and repeatability as part of the OEM supply chain.
