Morf3D Inc, a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation and a leader in metal additive manufacturing (AM), today announced its partnership with Siemens Advanta, the IoT consultancy and solutions integration arm of the global technology powerhouse. The two entities have committed to an ongoing technology development partnership as Morf3D continues to build its new Applied Digital Manufacturing Center (ADMC) in Long Beach, California.
Morf3D's ADMC is a new 90,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility that harnesses applied research, advanced engineering and application development, serial production and most significantly, new industry partnerships with global leaders to drive the industrialization 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 explore novel manufacturing and logistic concepts for the Long Beach center. 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," said Rani Shea, CEO of Siemens Advanta, North America. "In working with Morf3D and its new ADMC, we look forward to helping optimize additive manufacturing capabilities for the aerospace industry."
Siemens Advanta's work at the new ADMC will 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," said Ivan Madera, CEO for Morf3D Inc. "Morf3D is experiencing growth at a rapid rate. We wanted to make sure that our factory was flexible and that we had a team able to understand the challenges that we might face, not just today, but in the future too."
Morf3D's investment in the new California facility underscores the company's commitment to developing a strong industrial base that improves the quality of its products, enhances technical capabilities, and enriches customer applications worldwide. The center is projected to be one of the largest aerospace additive manufacturing solution integrators in the US. At peak, the center will be home to 150 multi-discipline engineers, research staff, and technical teams.
