Precision metal Additive Manufacturing company Sintavia, LLC, has announced plans to construct a 55,000 ft2 factory in Hollywood, Florida, USA, close to the company’s current Davie, Florida 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.

“With this new facility, we are excited to continue our leadership in the development of the metal AM supply chain for OEMs in precision industries,” stated Brian Neff, Sintavia’s Chairman and CEO.  “We will use this additional space not only to grow our existing competencies in laser and electron beam melting, but also to industrialise new technologies such as metal binder jet manufacturing.”

In addition to the company’s current manufacturing equipment and materials laboratory, Sintavia reports that the new facility will house over $20 million of new machinery, including larger AM equipment, an automated powder handling system, an uninterruptable power supply, an inert gas farm and an enhanced post-processing footprint.

“The key to Sintavia’s success over the past few years has been our vertically integrated approach to metal AM,” explained Doug Hedges, Sintavia’s President and COO. “Our ability to rapidly qualify machines and processes through the use of our on-site laboratories, scanning, and post-processing equipment demonstrates meaningful value to our customers. This same approach will continue on a larger scale with our new production facility.”

Sintavia anticipates that the expansion will create more than 135 jobs for skilled employees and support staff in the South Florida region.
