Sintavia, a designer and 3D printer of a new generation of flight and launch components, acquired three GE Additive Arcam A2X electron beam printers. The new electron beam printers will join the company’s four other electron beam printers, including three GE Additive Arcam Q20plus machines and one other A2X.

“We are big believers in the electron beam process for high precision structural components manufactured in titanium,” said Brian Neff, Sintavia’s 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.”

Siemens Sintavia partnershipThe acquisition comes after Sintavia achieved AS 9100 certification for product designa dn development and expanded its rocket manufacturing capacity with two new M4K-4 printers from AMCM. These events herald increasing growth at a critical turning point in the AM sector’s development. Aerospace’s reliance on the sector is ever-growing, and lessons learned from AM’s use in the aerospace sector, are propelling companies like Sintavia to new heights.

“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 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,” said Alain Dupont, Chief Customer Officer, GE Additive.
