Additive manufacturing (AM) company Sintavia has received internal approval to make production parts for Honeywell Aerospace using the powder bed fusion AM process. The approval covers all programs within Honeywell Aerospace.
‘As additive manufacturing as a technology matures, it is expected that OEMs such as Honeywell will increasingly rely on the traditional Tier One risk/reward supply chain model to manage manufacturing costs,’ the company said in a press release.
‘We have been working with Honeywell for over 18 months as part of their rigorous supplier qualification,’ said Brian R Neff, Sintavia’s CEO. ‘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.’
