Sintavia has acquired QC Laboratories, a nondestructive testing (NDT) services company based in Hollywood, Florida. The acquisition is said to greatly enhance Sintavia’s NDT capabilities for commercial aerospace applications, particularly with respect to surface finish conformance testing. Post-closing, it is expected that QC Labs will operate as a stand-alone subsidiary of Sintavia.

“We have worked with QC Labs for a number of years to develop surface finish inspection metrics that are relevant for the additive manufacturing industry,” says Doug Hedges, Sintavia’s president and chief technology officer. “[This] announcement is a natural extension of this same process, and we are looking forward to deepening the relationship with QC Labs as we continue to develop acceptable NDT metrics for production AM components.”

“For more than 50 years, QC Labs has been trusted by critical industries, including aerospace and defense, to deliver high quality NDT services,” says John Ahow, QC Labs’ general manager. “It is exciting to apply these same services to the developing field of additive manufacturing through Sintavia.”
