SLM Solutions to deliver three additive manufacturing machines to Morf3D

Sept. 17, 2021
The addition of the two SLM 500s and the NXG XII 600 additive manufacturing machines will support Morf3D’s goal of ramping up a global production setup while improving production lead time, order flexibility, cost efficiency, and quality.

Additive manufacturing pioneer SLM Solutions (Lübeck, Germany) will deliver two SLM 500 machines and one NXG XII 600 machine to Morf3D’s Applied Digital Manufacturing Center (ADMC; Long Beach, CA) in 2022. This partnership strengthens the international impact of additive manufacturing solutions, particularly in the aerospace, space, and defense market.

The mission of Morf3D’s facility is to leverage partner networks to transform supply chain norms and develop a certified production system to accelerate the industrialization of digital manufacturing. The addition of the two 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.

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 NXG XII 600 is equipped with 12 1 kW lasers for use in serial production for high-volume applications as well as for printing large parts. It’s capable of printing at speeds 20X faster than that of a single laser system and 5X faster than a 4-laser machine. 

The ADMC facility space will house Morf3D’s business operations and is designed with a vision toward innovation and growth for the additive manufacturing industry.
