Sintavia, LLC, Davie, Florida, USA, has opened its new 55,000 ft² (5,100 m²) advanced manufacturing facility in Hollywood, Florida. The new plant, which also serves as the company’s headquarters, celebrated its grand opening on May 9th at an event attended by over 150 customers and industry partners.
Sintavia’s new facility will house over $25 million of advanced manufacturing equipment, including medium and large scale metal AM systems, EDMs, post-processing machines, wet-booths, and multiple furnaces. Some of the industrial engineering improvements of the building include separate manufacturing rooms, large-scale powder management system, uninterruptible power supply, inert gas farm, and a final production acceptance quality control room.
“This new facility is the first of its kind in North America to offer large-scale AM production coupled with a robust aerospace quality management system,” commented, Brian Neff, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Sintavia. “As we grow, it will serve as a template for future vertically-aligned advanced manufacturing facilities around the U.S. and the world.”
