Sintavia Adds Arcam AM Machine, Bringing Company Metal-Machine Total to 19September 28, 2020
Sintavia LLC has acquired an Arcam Q20+ electron beam (EB) AM machine from GE Additive. This gives the metal-AM company, a Tier One supplier to the aerospace, defense and space industries, three EB printers and 19 industrial metal printers overall.
“Over the past several years, we have worked to qualify the Q20+ for aerospace manufacturing and now have several aerostructure product lines that depend on this technology,” says Brian R. Neff, Sintavia’s CEO. “EB printing is an excellent option for complex titanium aerospace components, and this business line will continue to grow for us. Even in a difficult overall manufacturing environment, the demand we have seen for EB-built components is very encouraging.”
The new printer was set to be installed in the company’s Hollywood, FL, production facility in early August, alongside another Arcam Q20+, an Arcam A2X, six EOS M400s, five EOS M290s, three SLM 280s, a Concept Laser M2 and a Trumpf TruPrint 3000.
