Nikon Advanced Manufacturing (AM) the U.S. subsidiary of Japanese tech giant Nikon, announced a strategic reorganisation of Morf3D Inc. (Morf3D), also a Nikon subsidiary, renaming it Nikon AM Synergy Inc. Nikon completed its full acquisition of Morf3D in July 2023, and the company has undergone significant realignment to better support Nikon’s advanced manufacturing business strategy.

This transformation includes new leadership and a refreshed mission that is more aligned with Nikon’s overall goals. The reorganisation entails a significant departure from the former general-purpose contract manufacturing (CM) service bureau business, resulting in the closure of the El Segundo, California location and the sale of non-essential assets.

Introducing Nikon AM Synergy

Nikon AM Synergy, which is now based at Nikon’s advanced manufacturing business unit facility in Long Beach, California, is dedicated to accelerating the adoption and scaling of metal additive manufacturing (AM) for cutting-edge applications, particularly in the defence and aerospace sectors. This will be accomplished by combining Nikon SLM Solutions AG’s cutting-edge laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) technology with Nikon’s internally developed directed energy deposition (DED) solutions, as well as premier metallurgy and metrology capabilities.

Nikon AM Synergy will provide specialised capabilities in a highly secure environment in the United States, meeting the stringent security needs of defence and aerospace clients. These capabilities are bolstered by a newly revitalised business development team that is well-versed in the industry and has already delivered results for key customers.  

“Our strategic realignment has sharpened our focus and optimized our global resources to drive the Nikon Vision 2030 plan forward. By facilitating the adoption, enablement, and scaling of advanced manufacturing solutions, we are positioning Nikon as a leader in on-shore industrial manufacturing. We look forward to announcing the next significant phase of our plan to transform the manufacturing landscape.”

– Hamid Zarringhalam, CEO of Nikon Advanced Manufacturing Inc.

This reorganisation is an important step in Nikon’s efforts to establish digital manufacturing as a core growth pillar, demonstrating the company’s dedication to innovation and industry leadership.
