New Additive Manufacturing Facility Coming for U.S. Navy's Nuclear Program

Sintavia is a designer and additive manufacturer of advanced thermomechanical systems for Aerospace, Defense, and Space OEMs, including parts like the one here.



Sintavia, LLC, a designer and additive manufacturer of complex mechanical systems and components for the Aerospace & Defense industry, has been awarded a contract from Bechtel Plant Machinery, Inc. (BPMI) to develop a dedicated additive manufacturing facility in support of the United States Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program.

The new, vertically integrated facility will develop and additively manufacture advanced nuclear propulsion systems for both in-production and in-development submarine programs of the United States Navy, including the next generation nuclear-powered attack submarine.

"Additive technology -- both with respect to design and manufacturing -- is well-known to be a superior method for supplying complex systems across the Aerospace & Defense industry," said Brian Neff, Sintavia's Founder and CEO. "As the U.S. Navy looks to develop advanced submarine platforms, it is imperative that additive technology plays a central role in that development."
