 Press Releases

  • DAVIE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sintavia, LLC, the global leader for independent metal Additive Manufacturing (“AM”), announced today that it had received AS9100 Revision C certification. With the announcement, Sintavia becomes one of a very few number of companies to receive the prestigious quality certification solely for the metal AM process within the Aerospace & Defense industry.

    “AS9100 is recognized as the global standard for quality systems, even beyond the Aerospace & Defense industry,” said Doug Hedges, Sintavia’s President and COO. “For Sintavia to achieve this certification strictly for the metal AM process is quite an achievement and a recognition of the company’s outstanding quality system.”

    Certification to the AS9100 standard further demonstrates Sintavia’s ability to meet customer specifications and ensures consistency in precision manufacturing for critical applications within the Aerospace & Defense industry. Sintavia is the only company in the world that has all phases of its manufacturing, post processing, analysis, and testing onsite. Having all areas of manufacturing housed under one roof increases Sintavia’s ability not only to control a customer’s product, but also to produce turn times that are unmatched in the metal AM industry today.

    Founded in 2012, Sintavia is the global leader for independent metal AM in support of critical industries, including Aerospace & Defense, Oil & Natural Gas, Automotive, and Ground Power Generation. With six high-speed printers from four of the largest global OEMs co-located alongside a hot isostatic press, a vacuum heat treatment furnace, an industrial CT scanner, a wire EDM, a full complement of mechanical testing equipment, and a full metallurgical and powder laboratory, Sintavia is able to optimize parameters, serially manufacture, and audit quality much faster than any of its competitors. The company is AS9100 and ANAB certified, and OASIS registered.

  • AM pioneer Sintavia will use HIP in production of critical aerospace and defense parts Västerås, Sweden, 14 June 2016 – A Quintus Technologies hot isostatic press (HIP) will round out the line-up of high-tech equipment in the 10,000-square-foot metal additive manufacturing (AM) center recently opened by Sintavia, LLC, in Davie, Fla.

    The model QIH 15L press will give Sintavia serial production capability for metal parts that meet the exacting quality control standards required by the aerospace and defense industry.

    “Without HIP technology, additively manufactured parts are susceptible to porosity and lack of fusion. HIP allows for near 100% net-density parts,” states Sintavia founder Brian Neff, who recognized the promise of AM, also known as 3D printing, during a long career in aviation and parts manufacturing.

    The press for Sintavia is equipped with Quintus’s proprietary Uniform Rapid Cooling (URC™) , which, by incorporating densification and heat treatment in the same equipment, shortens cycle times for higher productivity. The QIH 15L will play a key role in allowing Sintavia’s aviation customers to respond to the mandate to compress build-to-fly time.

    The press features a hot zone capability of 7.3 x 19.7 inches (186 x 500mm), enables pressures up to 30,000 psi (207 MPa), and handles temperatures up to 2550°F (1400°C). Its new modular design shortens installation time and reduces space requirements. It is delivered as a complete unit, with gas compressing system, cooling unit, transformers, electrical cabinets, and pressure vessel all mounted in a 103 x 73-inch skid.

    “Quintus HIPs set the industry standard for technology and safety,” comments Sintavia co-founder and president Doug Hedges, adding, “While heat treatment is widespread, there is not a lot of HIP capacity available today. As the demand increases, we wanted to stay in front of the curve, controlling our own HIP needs.”

    “As one of the first facilities of its kind, Sintavia is at the forefront of the additive manufacturing revolution,” states Jan Söderström, CEO of Quintus Technologies. “We are pleased to support their contributions to the aerospace and defense industry.”

    The press, fully pretested in the Quintus workshop, will be shipped from Västerås, Sweden, in July. It will be commissioned and up and running in September 2016.

    “As the AM process continues to penetrate various supply chains, not just aerospace and defense, you’ll see more applications requiring HIP-ing,” notes Mr. Neff. “For certain very critical parts, HIP will become more or less the standard.”

    “Building and maintaining long-term relationships is of the highest importance in our daily business, and we warmly welcome Sintavia into the Quintus customer family,” Mr. Söderström concludes.
