Sumitomo Corporation reportedly plans to increase its investment in additive manufacturing (AM) company Sintavia. According to the companies, the minority investment will be used to fund Sintavia’s provision of AM parts for aerospace and space.

Sumitomo will also look into using Sintavia’s technology as part of its industrial activities.

‘Through its technology, Sintavia is capable of reducing waste in the additive manufacturing production process, allowing end-stage products to fly lighter, ultimately reducing greenhouse gases and helping to create a more sustainable society,’ said Kevin Hyuga, general manager at Sumitomo.
