Nikon Corporation, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, has announced that subsidiary Morf3D Inc will be relaunching under the name Nikon AM Synergy Inc. Following Nikon’s full acquisition of Morf3D in July 2023, the company has undergone a significant realignment to support Nikon’s advanced manufacturing business strategy.

This transformation includes new leadership and a refreshed mission, said to align with Nikon’s broader goals. The reorganisation involves a decisive shift from the former general-purpose contract manufacturing (CM) service bureau business, leading to the closure of the El Segundo, California, location and the divestment of non-essential equipment.

Now operating from Nikon’s advanced manufacturing business unit facility in Long Beach, California, Nikon AM Synergy is dedicated to accelerating the adoption and scaling of metal Additive Manufacturing for cutting-edge applications, with a particular focus on the defence and aerospace sectors. This will be achieved through the integration of Nikon SLM Solutions AG’s Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) technology and Nikon’s internally developed Directed Energy Deposition (DED) solutions, enhanced by premier metallurgy and metrology capabilities.

Nikon AM Synergy will offer specialised capabilities within an ultra-secure environment in the United States, meeting the stringent security requirements of defence and aerospace clients. These capabilities are bolstered by a newly revitalised business development team that is reportedly well-versed in industry knowledge and already delivering results for strategic customers.

We look forward to announcing the next significant phase of our plan to transform the manufacturing landscape.”

This reorganisation is said to mark a crucial step in Nikon’s journey to establish digital manufacturing as a core growth pillar, underscoring the company’s commitment to innovation and industry leadership.
