Sintavia LLC, Hollywood, Florida, USA, has acquired an additional Arcam EBM Q20+ machine for Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB) Additive Manufacturing from GE Additive. This is reported to be the company’s third PBF-EB machine and its nineteenth industrial metal AM machine in total.
The new AM machine will be installed in the company’s Hollywood production facility in early August, alongside a second Arcam EBM Q20+, an Arcam EBM A2X, six EOS M400s, five EOS M290s, three SLM 280s, a Concept Laser M2, and a Trumpf TruPrint 3000.
“Over the past several years, we have worked to qualify the Q20+ for aerospace manufacturing and now have several aerostructure product lines that depend on this technology,” stated Brian R Neff, Sintavia’s CEO.
“Electron beam printing is an excellent option for complex titanium aerospace components, and this business line will continue to grow for us. Even in a difficult overall manufacturing environment, the demand we have seen for EB-built components is very encouraging.”
