Sintavia, a Tier One metal additive manufacturer, has received internal approval to manufacture production parts for Honeywell Aerospace via the powder-bed fusion process. Sintavia is said to be the first company to procure this approval, which covers all programs within Honeywell Aerospace. 

“We have been working with Honeywell for over 18 months as part of their rigorous supplier qualification,” says Brian R. Neff, Sintavia’s chairman and chief executive officer. “We are grateful that all of our team’s hard work has paid off, and are looking forward to demonstrating the many benefits of additive manufacturing within Honeywell’s supply chain in the form of lower costs, shorter manufacturing times, and dramatic design improvements.”
