Sintavia, a Tier One metal additive manufacturer, has broken ground on its new 55,000-square-foot advanced manufacturing facility located in Hollywood, Florida. The $15 million facility, expected to open in late 2018, is the first facility of its kind to employ lean manufacturing principles for large-scale metal additive manufacturing, the company says.

“Our new facility, when complete, will serve as template for future additive manufacturing facilities around the world,” says Brian R. Neff, Sintavia’s chairman and chief executive officer. “We will pioneer, and continuously improve, an optimized flow of work centered around Sintavia’s industry-leading and vertically aligned quality system. I am very excited to commence the start of the construction process, and grateful to our OEM customers who have necessitated this growth.”

The new facility is expected to result in 110 new jobs for skilled technicians and support personnel, and to house more than $25 million of advanced manufacturing equipment. This equipment will include metal 3D printers, hot isostatic presses, vacuum furnaces, a metallurgical and mechanical lab, postprocessing equipment, and a CT scanner.
