Morf3D, Inc., a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation and a trusted leader in metal additive manufacturing (AM), announced a collaboration with Siemens Advanta, the global technology powerhouse’s IoT consultancy and solutions integration arm. As Morf3D continues to build its new Applied Digital Manufacturing Center (ADMC) in Long Beach, California, the two companies have agreed to an ongoing technology development partnership.
Morf3D’s Applied Digital Manufacturing Center is a new 90,000-square-foot cutting-edge facility that combines applied research, advanced engineering and application development, serial production, and, most importantly, new industry partnerships with global leaders to drive the industrialization of digital manufacturing in high-growth markets.
Applied Digital Manufacturing Center
Advanta’s first project, the consultancy will use advanced design and simulation software from Siemens Digital Industries to develop a scale-up plan and bottleneck analysis for the Long Beach centre, as well as explore novel manufacturing and logistic concepts. A digital twin of production will be used to validate material flow and space demand.
“Siemens Advanta is proud to contribute to the forward-thinking innovation that is transforming the additive manufacturing industry. In working with Morf3D and its new ADMC, we look forward to helping optimize additive manufacturing capabilities for the aerospace industry.”– Rani Shea, CEO of Siemens Advanta, North America
Siemens Advanta’s work at the new Applied Digital Manufacturing Center will be expanded to include ongoing software innovations and on-site personnel support.
“We are constantly thinking about how to further our industry and this partnership with Siemens Advanta gives us a great sense of optimism for the future. Morf3D is experiencing growth at a rapid rate. We wanted to make sure that our factory was flexible and that we had a team able to understand the challenges that we might face, not just today, but in the future too.”– Ivan Madera, CEO for Morf3D Inc.
Morf3D’s investment in the new California facility demonstrates the company’s commitment to building a strong industrial base that improves the quality of its products, expands technical capabilities, and broadens customer applications around the world. The centre is expected to be one of the largest integrators of aerospace additive manufacturing solutions in the United States. At its peak, the centre will house 150 multidisciplinary engineers, researchers, and technical teams.
