Sintavia LLC announced that it has acquired three GE Additive Arcam A2X electron-beam printers, which will join four other electron-beam printers, including three GE Additive Arcam Q20plus machines and one other A2X, at the Hollywood, FL, designer and producer of aerospace and defense components.
“We are big believers in the electron-beam process for high-precision structural components manufactured in titanium,” says Brian Neff, Sintavia chief executive officer. “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.”Adds Alain Dupont, chief customer officer for GE Additive: “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 printers means that Sintavia now operates the largest fleet of Q20s and A2Xs in the United States. Precision aerostructure parts are a perfect fit for these machines, which were specifically designed for the cost-efficient production of large structural airframe components.”
