Additive manufacturing (AM) company Sintavia has achieved National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (Nadcap) approval for heat treatment at two facilities in Florida, USA. According to the company, it is the only company in the world with Nadcap approvals for laser AM, electron beam AM, and in-house heat treatment.
‘[The approval] will allow Sintavia to provide higher quality production parts more quickly to its customers,’ said Brian Neff, Sintavia chief executive. ‘Moreover, we are proud of the fact that we are the first manufacturer anywhere in the world to achieve these quality accreditations.’
The Nadcap accreditation for heat treatment includes nickel and aluminum alloys. Sintavia plans also to pursue Nadcap approval for its in-house metallurgical and mechanical testing laboratory, located in Davie, Florida, which is already ISO 17025-certified.
