Sintavia, LLC, Davie, Florida, USA, has broken ground on its new 55,000 ft2 advanced manufacturing facility in Hollywood, Florida. According to the company, the $15 million facility, expected to open in late 2018, is the first of its kind to employ lean manufacturing principles for large-scale metal Additive Manufacturing.

“Our new facility, when complete, will serve as template for future Additive Manufacturing facilities around the world,” stated Brian R Neff, Sintavia’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We will pioneer, and continuously improve, an optimised flow of work centred around Sintavia’s industry-leading and vertically aligned quality system. I am very excited to commence the start of the construction process, and grateful to our OEM customers who have necessitated this growth.”

The new facility is expected to make available 110 new jobs for skilled technicians and support personnel and house over $25 million of advanced manufacturing equipment. This equipment includes metal printers, hot isostatic presses, vacuum furnaces, a metallurgical and mechanical lab, post-processing equipment and a CT scanner.
