November 11, 2020
Sintavia LLC, Hollywood, Florida, USA, reports that it has achieved ISO 14001 approval for the environmental management system at its Hollywood location. The new accreditation, which is issued to companies that demonstrate conformance to a set of environmental standards, represents the third ISO certification attained by Sintavia since 2015.
The environmental management system certification includes the scope of its metal Additive Manufacturing workflow, from design to production, as well as metrological and metallurgical testing. In addition to the ISO 14001 certification, Sintavia holds AS9100 and ISO 17025 certifications and is reported to be the only company in the world with Nadcap approvals for Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB), Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB), and in-house heat treatment.
In 2018, the company joined the Green Business Bureau (GBB) and states that it has since earned the GBB Platinum Level of certification. Brian Neff, Sintavia’s CEO, stated, “Since co-founding the Additive Manufacturer Green Trade Association (AMGTA) last November, Sintavia has defined itself as a leader in improving, via AM, the industrial ecology of precision metal manufacturing.”
“The ISO 14001 certification not only continues this focus but also allows Sintavia to measure sustainable manufacturing efficiencies and monitor progress towards sustainability goals,” he concluded.
