Morf3D, an El Segundo, CA-based metal additive manufacturing specialist, has partnered with Siemens Advanta Consulting on a new applied digital manufacturing center (AMDC) in Long Beach, CA.

Morf3D, a subsidiary of Nikon, said the partnership will support development at the 90,000-square-foot facility – which will harness applied research, advanced engineering and application development, serial production, and industry partnerships. First announced in April 2021, the facility has ambitions to be one of the largest aerospace additive manufacturing solution integrators in the US.

Siemens Advanta Consulting, the industrial heavyweight’s management consulting arm, will use its proprietary design and simulation software to create scale-up plans and bottleneck analysis, as well as examine innovative manufacturing and logistics concepts. Advanta will also use a digital twin of production to validate material flow and space demand.
