Quintus Technologies has announced that it is to ship a Hot Isostatic Press to the new metal Additive Manufacturing centre recently opened by Sintavia, LLC, in Davie, Florida, USA. The model QIH 15L press is reported to give Sintavia serial production capability for metal parts that meet the exacting quality control standards required by the aerospace and defence industry.

“Without HIP technology, additively manufactured parts are susceptible to porosity and lack of fusion. HIP allows for near 100% net-density parts,” stated Sintavia founder Brian Neff, who recognised the promise of AM during a long career in aviation and parts manufacturing. The press for Sintavia is equipped with Quintus’s proprietary Uniform Rapid Cooling (URC™), which, by incorporating densification and heat treatment in the same equipment, shortens cycle times for higher productivity.

The QIH 15L will play a key role in allowing Sintavia’s aviation customers to respond to the mandate to compress build-to-fly time. The press features a hot zone capability of 186 x 500 mm (7.3 x 19.7 inches), enables pressures up to 207 MPa (30,000 psi) and handles temperatures up to 1400°C (2550°F). Its new modular design shortens installation time and reduces space requirements. It is delivered as a complete unit, with gas compressing system, cooling unit, transformers, electrical cabinets and pressure vessel.

Sintavia is currently manufacturing with Inconel 718, Inconel 625, Aluminum, and Titanium powders

Founded in 2012, Sintavia provides metal Additive Manufacturing solutions, including serial production and development. The company’s state-of-the-art facility in Davie, Florida, offers on-site metal Additive Manufacturing via the powder bed fusion process, as well as metrological and metallurgical testing.

“As one of the first facilities of its kind, Sintavia is at the forefront of the Additive Manufacturing revolution,” stated Jan Söderström, CEO of Quintus Technologies. “We are pleased to support their contributions to the aerospace and defence industry.”
