Additive manufacturer Sintavia, LLC, on Monday said it has acquired QC Laboratories, a provider of non-destructive testing (NDT) services to the aerospace and defense industry, to strengthen the quality of its additive manufactured (AM) products.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Both companies are based in Florida.

Sintavia said the acquisition significantly enhances its NDT capabilities for commercial aerospace industry applications, particularly for surface finish conformance testing.

“We have worked with QC Labs for a number of years to develop surface finish inspection metrics that are relevant for the additive manufacturing industry,” Doug Hedges, Sintavia’s president and chief technology officer, said in a statement. “Today’s announcement is a natural extension of this same process, and we are looking forward to deepening the relationship with QC Labs as we continue to develop acceptable NDT metrics for production AM components.”

QC Labs will become a stand-alone subsidiary of Sintavia.

Earlier this year Sintavia opened a new 55,000 square foot facility for large-scale additive manufacturing. The company serves the aerospace and defense industry.
