Morf3D Inc. and Equispheres Inc. are collaborating to qualify and develop new Equispheres’ high-performance aluminium powder applications that will result in further performance improvements based on current expectations in order to improve the performance and productivity of metal additive manufacturing.
Morf3D is a California-based company that specialises in the optimization of technical solutions for high-volume additive manufacturing (AM) for the space, aviation, and defence applications. The new partnerships will also boost in exploring aluminium powder applications in these mentioned high-performance sectors.
Developing aluminium powder applications
The work will show how improved performance can be achieved with powders optimised for high volume production printing, thereby expanding the possibilities of additive manufacturing for industrial parts.
“Morf3D is a leading innovation partner in additive manufacturing and has extensive experience with serial production. At Equispheres, we have an emphasis on applications engineering and process optimization, so we speak the same language. With Morf3D applying our materials technology, we expect to find even more opportunities for AM in space and aviation.”– Evan Butler-Jones, Vice-President – Product & Strategy for Equispheres
Morf3D increases customer efficiency by advancing all areas of additive manufacturing. This includes locating and qualifying advanced-property materials.
“We constantly seek innovations in additive manufacturing that will accelerate customer adoption, solve challenging problems and drive to reach traditional cost models. This collaboration with Equispheres gives us access to materials optimized for production with proven performance benefits. We’re excited to explore and share the possibilities of this technology.”– Dr. Behrang Poorganji, Vice-President, Materials Technology with Morf3D
Butler-Jones added, “Morf3D has embraced the engineering and optimization aspects that are vital to the adoption of additive manufacturing. They have a deep pool of expertise and talent, as well as collaborations with other industry leaders. We’re happy to be a part of that network, propelling the industry forward.”
