Sintavia, LLC, Davie, Florida, USA, has received internal approval to manufacture flightworthy production parts for Honeywell Aerospace, Phoenix, Arizona, USA, using powder bed Additive Manufacturing. The approval covers all programmes within Honeywell Aerospace, and represents the first approval granted to a tier-one additive manufacturer by Honeywell.

Brian R Neff, Sintavia’s Chairman and CEO, stated, “We have been working with Honeywell for over eighteen months as part of their rigorous supplier qualification. We are grateful that all of our team’s hard work has paid off, and are looking forward to demonstrating the many benefits of Additive Manufacturing within Honeywell’s supply chain in the form of lower costs, short manufacturing times and dramatic design improvements.”

A division of Honeywell International, Honeywell Aerospace is widely regarded as a leader in the adoption of metal Additive Manufacturing in the aerospace industry. With dedicated facilities in five countries, it is at the forefront of the development of new commercial aerospace applications, as well as the supply chain needed to implement series production.

This first approval of an external Additive Manufacturing company marks the next step toward Honeywell building a robust and reliable supply chain to advance the adoption of AM for production aerospace components to the required standards.
