After closing a collaboration deal with SLM Solutions, Morf3D, a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation and expert AM service provider, is partnering with EOS for its Applied Digital Manufacturing Center (ADMC) in Long Beach, California.
Morf3D’s ADMC is a 90,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility harnessing 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.
“The AM industry is developing fast and Morf3D’s ADMC is a next-level development toward scaling production”, said Glynn Fletcher, president of EOS North America. “Morf3D has evolved spectacularly, and we are very proud to have been a part of their vision from the very beginning. EOS has never wavered from our commitment to serial AM production and the ADMC is another giant step on our industry’s march toward the digitization of manufacturing”.
Morf3D’s technology investments in EOS’ Direct Metal Laser Solidification (DMLS) metal AM platforms will include the biggest installation of EOS M 400 series systems under one roof, automated shared modules, material management systems, and EOS’ AMCM line of specialized large format metal industrial 3D printers – all working in concert to accelerate the progress toward the industrialization of AM. When complete, the ADMC will provide full-scale production enablement capabilities within the world’s first industrial ecosystem for the advancement of AM. For their part, EOS will deploy the most advanced, automated AM technology, together with the engineering resources necessary to help ensure the full optimization for customer programs.
“As we seek to re-invent the future of manufacturing, our industry partnerships within the ADMC will bring forth exciting capabilities and new innovations for the industry. Our aim is not to simply add more capacity or capability but rather solve the complex issues that are central to industrializing Additive Manufacturing. EOS and AMCM are poised to help lead the charge toward implementing AM for production at scale”, shared Ivan Madera, Morf3D CEO.
