Florida Startup Prepares to 3D Print Metal Parts

October 1, 2015

Neff Capital Management LLC, a private equity firm based in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, has established a new company, Sintavia, LLC, to focus on the additive manufacturing of production parts for aerospace and defense original equipment manufacturers. Sintavia, headquartered in Davie, FL, will produce parts based on the exacting quality-control standards required by the aerospace and defense industries. In addition to production capabilities, the company will maintain a state-of-the-art metallurgical and metrology lab.

Neff Capital’s funding of Sintavia includes a $10 million investment supporting production of complex metal parts using selective laser melting (SLM). Sintavia will purchase three SLM 280HL dual-laser systems from SLM Solutions NA, Inc., Novi, MI. The systems employ a 280 by 280 by 350-mm build envelope, with either a single 400-W, dual (400 +1000-W), or twin 400-W lasers.
