Sintavia Partners with Taiyo Nippon Sanso

Monday, February 5, 2018
Sintavia, LLC, Davie, FL, a Tier One metal additive manufacturer, and Japan’s Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation (TNSC), a global provider of industrial gases and related welding solutions to precision industries, have announced a partnership to develop and promote metal additive manufacturing (AM) solutions across key industries. The partnership involves a technical collaboration to develop and commercialize gas flow processes that optimize the benefits of metal AM.

“Gas flow dynamics are the single most important—and single most overlooked—aspect of successful quality AM builds,” says Brian R. Neff, Sintavia’s chairman and chief executive officer. “In TNSC, we are partnering with a true leader in industrial gas flow optimization.”

“TNSC has for many years developed proprietary solutions for industrial welding applications,” says Tadaharu (Ted) Watanabe, TNSC’s general manager of global business development. “We are excited to apply our many years of gas quality control and gas flow experience to the exciting and growing world of additive manufacturing. Sintavia is at the forefront of this technology, and is a quality partner for us.”

The optimization of industrial gas for AM involves perfecting the chemistry, mix, and flow within the build chamber of each manufacturing run. Poorly flowed or poorly mixed gas can result in builds that lack proper mechanical properties, have unacceptable porosity, or a general lack of fusion. The partnership will work with existing customers to promote optimized gas flow strategies that allow for successful end-use builds.
