Sintavia, LLC, has officially opened the new 55,000-square-foot advanced manufacturing facility, located in Hollywood, FL. The new plant, which also serves as the company’s headquarters, celebrated its grand opening on May 9 at an event with over 150 customers, industry partners and government officials.
“This new facility is the first of its kind in North America to offer large-scale AM production coupled with a robust aerospace quality management system,” says Brian Neff, Sintavia’s chairman and chief executive officer. “As we grow, it will serve as a template for future vertically-aligned advanced manufacturing facilities around the U.S. and the world.”
Sintavia’s new facility houses over $25 million of advanced manufacturing equipment including medium and large scale metal printers, EDMs, post-processing machines, wet-booths and multiple furnaces. Some of the industrial engineering improvements of the building include separate manufacturing rooms segregated by alloy, a large-scale powder management system, an uninterruptable power supply, an inert gas farm and a final production acceptance quality control room.
The new facility is capable of producing tens of thousands of parts representing in excess of $100 million in additive manufacturing revenue annually. The expansion is anticipated to bring more than 130 new jobs for skilled employees and support staff to South Florida.
