Siemens AG, headquartered in Munich, Germany, and Materials Solutions Ltd – a Siemens Business (MSL), based in Worcester, UK, have opened a new advanced innovation centre in Orlando, Florida, USA. The 1,500 m2 (17,000 ft2) centre is reportedly equipped with advanced manufacturing and inspection technologies for metal Additive Manufacturing to enable faster solutions for industry opportunities, and encourage innovation for the creation of new, advanced components and digital solutions. 

The centre is expected to help foster new ideas, methodologies and business models, and is said to offer the latest automation tools, including robotic machines, Additive Manufacturing systems, and 3D scanners. Siemens explained that the centre will focus on rapid problem solving to support the company’s energy businesses, while Materials Solutions will offer its Additive Manufacturing services to both the centre and external customers.

Vinod Philip, CEO of Siemens Service Power Generation; Steve Conner, CEO of Siemens Energy, Inc.; Markus Seibold, VP of Additive Manufacturing at Siemens Power Generation Operations; and Mark Kamphaus, Head of Technology & Innovation for Siemens Service Power Generation attended the opening of the new innovation centre. Also in attendance were a number of Siemens employees and key customers in the energy sector, as well as guests from other high-performance industries such as aerospace.

“This centre is unique, bringing together a multitude of our innovative processes under one roof,” stated Tim Holt, COO of Siemens Gas and Power. “The combination of these competencies, with the twelve years of experience in metal additive that Materials Solutions brings, provides us with a distinctive capability to support the development of holistic additive solutions/services to our customers in our energy business, as well as in high-performance industries such as aerospace, automotive and others.”
