Sintavia, LLC, Hollywood, Florida, USA, has achieved National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (Nadcap) approval for heat treatment at both its Hollywood, Florida, and Davie, Florida, locations. It is reportedly the only company in the world with Nadcap approvals for laser and electron beam Additive Manufacturing, as well as in-house heat treatment.

The Nadcap accreditation for heat treatment includes nickel and aluminium alloys, and the initial approval is believed to be good through July 31, 2021. In addition to Nadcap approvals for heat treatment and AM, Sintavia also holds Nadcap approvals for non-destructive testing and chemical processing through its wholly-owned subsidiary, QC Laboratories, Inc.

The company states that it also plans to pursue Nadcap approval for its in-house metallurgical and mechanical testing laboratory, located in Davie, Florida, which is already ISO 17025-certified.

“Nadcap approval for our internal heat treatment capabilities is not only a continuation of this focus, but also will allow Sintavia to provide higher quality production parts more quickly to its customers. Moreover, we are proud of the fact that we are the first manufacturer anywhere in the world to achieve these quality accreditations.”
