Sintavia, LLC, Hollywood, Florida, USA, has acquired an additional three GE Additive Arcam A2X Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB) machines. The new Additive Manufacturing machines will join the company’s existing lineup of three Q20plus models and one other A2X.

“We are big believers in the Electron Beam process for high-precision structural components manufactured in titanium,” stated Brian Neff, CEO of Sintavia. “It has been a great pleasure to work with GE Additive to develop successful manufacturing strategies for critical aerostructure components. We are excited to expand our production platform using the electron beam process in the months and years to come.”

Alain Dupont, CCO at GE Additive, commented, “It’s great to see continued momentum and innovation at Sintavia. The recent addition of a third Q20plus printer, plus these three recently purchased A2X printers, means Sintavia now operates the largest fleet of Q20s and A2Xs in the US. Precision aerostructure parts are a perfect fit for these machines, which were specifically designed for the cost-efficient production of large structural airframe components.”

This investment follows on the heels of Sintavia’s recent AS 9100 certification, allowing the company to offer critical solutions for its flight and launch customers.
