AM Forward nominates 3D printing supplier

Sintavia, which makes propulsion systems for Aerospace, Defense and Space, has been chosen to represent the additive manufacturing (AM) supply chain by US White House initiative AM Forward.

Sintavia was nominated by initiative members Lockheed Martin and Honeywell Aerospace as an AM supplier, the company said.

"We were very honored to be chosen by both Lockheed Martin and Honeywell Aerospace to represent the AM supply chain in the launch of this exciting new initiative," said Brian Neff, Sintavia founder and CEO. "AM Forward is an initiative that is critical to the long-term viability of American manufacturing, and we similarly call on Congress to pass the Bipartisan Innovation Act to advance research and development into additive manufacturing and other transformational manufacturing technologies."

The Bipartisan Innovation Act, which is currently in legislative conference, would improve the goals of AM Forward by establishing a supply chain office at the Department of Commerce, according to Sintavia.
