Leading Space Coast metal AM service provider Morf3D is celebrating the new year by taking delivery of two new SLM 500 3D printers while waiting for one more system, the top-of-the-line NXG XII 600, to be installed in the first half of 2022. According to Morf3D founder Ivan Madera, the machines will be running aluminum and another currently undisclosed alloy.

Working closely with the team at SLM Solutions North America (the company is partly owned by the US-based fund Elliot), Morf3D Inc is looking to bring forth innovative approaches to application development, production capabilities and quality for the aerospace and defense industry.

The machines, which had been ordered in September, have now been delivered to Morf3D’s new state-of-the-art headquarters, the Applied Digital Manufacturing Center in Long Beach, California, in 2022.

The mission of Morf3D’s 90,000 square ADMC foot facility is to leverage partner networks to transform supply chain norms and develop the industry’s first certified production system to accelerate the industrialization of Digital Manufacturing. The addition of the 2 SLM 500s and the NXG XII 600 will support Morf3D’s goal of ramping up a global production setup while improving production lead time, order flexibility, cost efficiency, and quality. This joining of forces will enable quality and repeatability while paving the way to serial production.

“Our partnership with SLM Solutions dramatically shifts the landscape of serial production enabling our customers to achieve unmatched levels of quality and performance,” commented at the time Ivan Madera, CEO of Morf3D. “The NXG XII 600 platform is an engineering marvel that addresses many aspects of a production-ready system, and the ADMC will enable new industry partnerships, significantly scaling AM to new heights. Our goal is to accelerate the qualification process by collaborating on new application development and part certification within the aerospace, space, and defense market.”

Next to the supply of machines, SLM Solutions will also offer on-site support in the form of education, training, and consulting. All of ADMC’s research and development partners will work together to drive new innovations and deploy novel methods of aerospace engineering in order to increase productivity and automation. All partners will also have access to collective training, meeting, and gathering spaces for customer events and business development efforts.

The Applied Digital Manufacturing Center is located at 3550 Carson Street, Long Beach, California. The space will house Morf3D’s business operations and is designed with a vision toward innovation and growth for the AM industry.
