Sintavia, LLC, Florida, USA, has broadened its Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) capabilities through the acquisition of a large scale EOS M400 system. The new machine, which will be operational in September 2017, represents the first large envelope laser AM system purchased by Sintavia. With a build volume of 400mm x 400mm x 400mm, it is expected to allow Sintavia more flexibility in meeting customer build requirements.

“The EOS M400 is a very sound system,” stated Doug Hedges, Sintavia’s President and COO. “We believe it is among the most qualifiable of the large laser platform printers due to its well-controlled mechanical parameters and reliability. We have spent a great deal of effort developing processes for dependable results and to qualify the production of metal parts for OEMs. This system is a big step in the right direction for those efforts, particularly with respect to our defence and space customers.”

Sintavia stated that it expects to add thirty-five new Additive Manufacturing systems to its facilities by 2020, the majority of which will be similarly sized large systems. This growth will also require the acquisition of larger gauged support equipment, including a larger heat treatment furnace, HIP and other post-processing equipment.

Sintavia holds AS9100, ISO17025, and ANAB accreditation, as well as being OASIS and ITAR registered. In May 2017, the company announced plans to construct a 55,000 ft2 factory in Hollywood, Florida, USA, close to its current Davie facility. The new plant, which will also serve as Sintavia’s new headquarters, is expected to launch in mid-2018 and to quadruple the company’s current production capacity.
