The three GE Additive Arcam electron beam 3D printers will provide robust titanium aerostructure components to the Aerospace & Defence industry
Sintavia, LLC, a designer and additive manufacturer of critical thermal components for the Aerospace, Defense, & Space industry, announced that it has acquired three GE Additive Arcam A2X electron beam 3D printers. The new electron beam 3D printers will join the company’s four other electron beam printers, including three GE Additive Arcam Q20plus machines and one other A2X.
Commenting on the acquisition, Brian Neff, Sintavia’s Chief Executive Officer said, “We are big believers in the electron beam process for high precision structural components manufactured in titanium. It has been a great pleasure to work with GE Additive to develop successful manufacturing strategies for critical aerostructure components. We are excited to expand our production platform using the electron beam process in the months and years to come.”
Alain Dupont, Chief Customer Officer, GE Additive commented, “It’s great to see continued momentum and innovation at Sintavia. The recent addition of a third Q20plus printer plus these three recently purchased A2X electron beam 3D printers means Sintavia now operates the largest fleet of Q20s and A2Xs in the US. Precision aerostructure parts are a perfect fit for these machines, which were specifically designed for the cost-efficient production of large structural airframe components.
In addition to the new electron beam 3D printers, earlier this year, Sintavia had acquired also two M4K-4 metal 3D printers from AMCM GmbH, an EOS group company, Germany, to expand its rocket manufacturing capabilities. Sintavia uses the machines to expand its portfolio of thrust chamber design and manufacturing for the rapidly growing commercial space industry.
About Sintavia: Sintavia designs and 3D prints a new generation of flight and launch products for the Aerospace, Defense, & Space industry. The company’s ability to design and serially produce thermally engineered components with complex structural walls of less than 150 microns has unlocked a level of performance impossible to achieve using traditional manufacturing methods.
