Strategic alignment between metal additive manufacturer Sintavia and Trumpf to gain machine qualifications for airplane parts.Sintavia, a provider of metal additive manufacturing services, including laser-based technologies, and machine tool and industrial laser giant Trumpf Group have agreed to collaborate to accelerate the penetration of Trumpf’s TruPrint metal printers into the global aerospace industry.
The agreement, which involves a TruPrint 3000 system with industrial part and powder management being installed in Sintavia’s Davie, FL, manufacturing facility, is said to mark the start of a new strategic alignment for both companies.
Brian Neff, Sintavia’s CEO, commented, “The TruPrint 3000’s build chamber is completely modular and secure — a requirement for Sintavia’s new Lean production facility. We are excited to be working with Trumpf on the TruPrint 3000, and to grow the relationship into the future.”
"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.
In August 2017, Sintavia announced the appointment of two new additions to its leadership team. New Global VP Sales is J Louis Schlegel IV, and new VP Operations is Rick Clark. The senior appointments follow other recent news of the company’s factory expansion plans for 2018.
