Additive manufacturing (AM) specialist Sintavia LLC has acquired a large scale EOS M400 system. The new machine, which will be operational in September, represents the first larger envelope laser printer purchased by Sintavia and has a build volume of 400mm x 400mm x 400mm.

‘The EOS M400 is a very sound system,’ said Doug Hedges, Sintavia’s president and COO. ‘We believe it is among the most qualifiable of the large laser platform printers due to its well-controlled mechanical parameters and reliability.’

As part of its recently announced expansion Sintavia says that it expects to add an incremental 35 printers by 2020, the majority of which will be similarly sized large systems. This growth will also require the acquisition of larger gauged support equipment, including a larger heat treatment furnace, HIP, and other post-processing equipment.
