Sintavia, LLC, Davie, Florida, USA, has announced a strategic alignment with Trumpf Group to work together to accelerate the penetration of Trumpf’s TruPrint metal Additive Manufacturing systems in the global aerospace industry. The agreement will see a Trumpf TruPrint 3000 system with industrial part and powder management being installed at Sintavia’s manufacturing facility and is said to mark the start of a new strategic alignment for both companies.
“Trumpf is a globally recognised leader within the high-technology tooling and laser industries, and their machine customer support is the best in the world,” stated Brian R Neff, Sintavia’s Chief Executive Officer. “Moreover, the TruPrint 3000’s build chamber is completely modular and secure – a requirement for Sintavia’s new Lean production facility. We are excited to work with Trumpf on the TruPrint 3000 and to grow the relationship into the future.”
Ralf Kimmel, General Manager of Trumpf North America, added, “Between Trumpf’s leadership in precision tool manufacturing and high-technology laser applications, and Sintavia’s vertically aligned manufacturing platform, we feel that this development is a win-win for both parties. The TruPrint 3000 is both scalable and qualifiable, and we look forward to working with Sintavia as it goes through these processes with its numerous aerospace customers.”
Sintavia expects to install the Trumpf TruPrint 3000 AM system in early 2018.
