Sintavia, LLC, a designer and additive manufacturer of critical thermal components for the aerospace, defense and aerospace industries, announced the purchase of three GE additive Arcam A2X electron beam 3D printer. The new electron beam 3D printers will be among the company’s four other electron beam printers, including three GE Additive Arcam Q20plus machines and another A2X.

Brian Neff, Sintavia’s Chief Executive Officer, commented on the acquisition: “We are a firm believer in the electron beam process for high-precision structural components made of titanium. It has been a great pleasure working with GE Additive to develop successful manufacturing strategies for critical aircraft structural components. We look forward to expanding our production platform using the electron beam process in the coming months and years. “

Alain Dupont, GE Additive’s Chief Customer Officer, commented, “It’s great that Sintavia continues to gain momentum and innovation. With the recent addition of a third Q20plus printer, as well as these three recently purchased A2X electron beam 3D printers, Sintavia now operates the largest fleet of Q20 and A2X printers in the United States. Precise aero structural parts are a perfect match for these machines, which are specially designed for low-cost manufacture of large structural airframe components.

In addition to the new electron beam 3D printers, Sintavia had earlier this year acquired also two M4K-4 metal 3D printers from AMCM GmbH, an EOS Group company, Germany, to expand its missile manufacturing capabilities. Sintavia is using the machines to expand its portfolio of thrust chamber design and manufacture for the fast growing commercial space industry.

About Sintavia: Sintavia designs and prints 3D prints of a new generation of flight and take-off products for the aerospace, defense and space industries. The company’s ability to design and serially manufacture thermally engineered components with complex structural walls less than 150 microns has opened up a level of performance that cannot be achieved with traditional manufacturing methods.
