Morf3D, Inc, a Nikon subsidiary headquartered in El Segundo, California, USA, has announced its partnership with Siemens Advanta, the Internet of Things (IoT) consultancy and solutions integration arm of Siemens. The collaboration will result in an ongoing technology development partnership as Morf3D continues to build its Applied Digital Manufacturing Center (ADMC) in Long Beach, California.

The ADMC is a new 8,400 m2 state-of-the-art facility that harnesses applied research, advanced engineering and application development, serial production and new industry partnerships in an effort to drive the industrialisation of digital manufacturing in high-growth markets.

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, as well as exploring novel manufacturing and logistic concepts for the Long Beach centre. Material flow and space demand will be validated based on a digital twin of production.

“Siemens Advanta is proud to contribute to the forward-thinking innovation that is transforming the Additive Manufacturing industry,” stated Rani Shea, CEO of Siemens Advanta, North America. “In working with Morf3D and its new ADMC, we look forward to helping optimise Additive Manufacturing capabilities for the aerospace industry.”

Siemens Advanta’s work at the new ADMC is expected to transition into additional 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,” added Ivan Madera, CEO for Morf3D. “We are experiencing growth at a rapid rate and now more than ever, it’s important to bring together the greatest minds to maintain that growth and ensure that we are always anticipating the next step towards success.”

Morf3D’s ADMC is projected to be one of the largest aerospace Additive Manufacturing solution integrators in the US, and is expected to be home to 150 multi-discipline engineers, research staff and technical teams.
