Sintavia, LLC, the global independent leader for metal Additive Manufacturing (“AM”) services, and the TRUMPF Group, a leading high-technology company offering production solutions in the machine tool and laser sectors, have come to an agreement to work together to accelerate the penetration of TRUMPF TruPrint metal printers within the global aerospace industry. The agreement, which involves a TRUMPF TruPrint 3000 with industrial part and powder management being installed in Sintavia’s Davie, FL, manufacturing facility, marks the start of a new strategic alignment for both companies.
“TRUMPF is a globally recognized leader within the high technology tooling and laser industries, and their machine customer support is the best in the world,” said Brian R. Neff, Sintavia’s Chief Executive Officer. “Moreover, the TruPrint 3000’s build chamber is completely modular and secure — a requirement for Sintavia’s new Lean production facility. We are excited to work with TRUMPF on the TruPrint 3000, and to grow the relationship into the future.”
“Between TRUMPF’s leadership in precision tool manufacturing and high technology laser applications, and Sintavia’s vertically aligned manufacturing platform, we feel that this development is a win-win for both parties,” said Ralf Kimmel, General Manager of TRUMPF North America. “The TruPrint 3000 is both scalable and qualifiable, and we look forward to working with Sintavia as it goes through these processes with its numerous aerospace customers.”
The two companies have a target installation date for the TruPrint 3000 of early 2018.
