Morf3D, a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation and company focused on metal additive manufacturing (AM), reports its partnership with Siemens Advanta, the Internet of Things (IoT) consultancy and solutions integration arm of the global technology company. The two entities have committed to an ongoing technology development partnership as Morf3D works on building its new Applied Digital Manufacturing Center (ADMC) in Long Beach, CA.
Morf3D's ADMC is a new 90,000-square-foot facility incorporating applied research, advanced engineering and application development, serial production and new industry partnerships with global companies to push forward industrialization of digital manufacturing in high-growth markets, the company reports.
As part of Siemens Advanta’s inaugural project, the consultancy will leverage advanced design and simulation software from Siemens Digital Industries to develop a scale up plan and bottleneck analysis, and explore new manufacturing and logistic concepts for the Long Beach center. Material flow and space demand will be validated based on a digital twin of production.
“In working with Morf3D and its new ADMC, we look forward to helping optimize additive manufacturing capabilities for the aerospace industry,” says Rani Shea, CEO of Siemens Advanta, North America.
Siemens Advanta’s work at the new ADMC will transition into more 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,” says Ivan Madera, CEO for Morf3D Inc.
With Morf3D's investment in the new California facility, the center is projected to be one of the largest aerospace additive manufacturing solution integrators in the U.S. At peak, the center will be home to 150 multidiscipline engineers, research staff and technical teams.
