Sintavia LLC of Davie, Fla., developed full end-to-end parameters for producing additively manufactured parts in F357 aluminum, as well as other Al-Si alloys, for use in precision manufacturing. Sintavia’s proprietary process for printing F357 aluminum powder was developed specifically to address aerospace and automotive industry needs for components with low density, good processability and heat conductivity. By establishing a procedure that not only includes pre-build material analysis but also post-production heat treatment and stress relief, the company is able to produce AM components proven to exceed original design strength by up to 125% at net densities of near 100%.
