Morf3D, a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation, helps clients realize the potential of additive manufacturing in a new age of aerospace innovation. SLM Solutions is an integrated solutions provider and metal additive manufacturing partner. The cooperation underscores both SLM Solution’s and Morf3D’s commitment to further advance the industrialisation of Additive Manufacturing(AM) technology as well as to streamline and accelerate serial production lines across the globe. Such industry partnerships aim to significantly scale AM production repeatability and quality to new heights.

The mission of Morf3D’s new headquarters is to leverage partner networks that will transform supply chain norms and develop the industry’s first certified production system to accelerate the industrialisation 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.

SLM®500 is the best performing, most efficient system in its class, and it is designed to ensure operator safety and lower overall operational costs. The first quad-laser metal system on the market, SLM®500 can integrate lasers independently or in parallel to increase build rates by 90% over twin laser configuration. NXG XII 600 on the other hand, is an industry gamechanger equipped with 12 1KW lasers, making it the fastest commercial machine on the market. It’s designed to be used 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. Enabling acceleration in AM at every angle, the NXG XII 600 is the modern day “da vinci”, crafting masterpieces at serial production scale.

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

Sam O’Leary, CEO of SLM Solutions, is enthusiastic about the partnership, citing the increase in efficiency and productivity as the key benefits for all partners. “Adding the NXG Xll 600 to Morf3D’s SLM Solutions’ machines to the ADMC bolsters the collective digital manufacturing ecosystem, helping to improve production speed, quality, and automation.”

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 also have access to collective training, meeting, and gathering spaces for customer events and business development efforts. Sam O’Leary, adds: “We are united in our customer-first approach, which reflects the training and education we provide to all of our partners.”

The machines will be delivered to Morf3D’s new state-of-the-art headquarters, in Long Beach, California, in 2022. This partnership strengthens the international impact of Additive Manufacturing solutions.

Airbus & Boeing Record Billions In New Orders

Airbus & Boeing Record Billions In New Orders

The Americas: Aerospace companies Airbus and Boeing have recorded orders of almost US$100 billion, particularly for their high-volume narrow-body aircraft platforms.

A memorandum of understanding was signed between Airbus and Phoenix-based Indigo Partners for the purchase of 430 additional jets by four airlines in its portfolio. The order comprised of 273 A320neo and 157 A321neo aircraft, which is an estimated total value of US$49.5 billion at list prices. This is reportedly the largest order in the history of the company.

Airlines receiving the jets include US-based Frontier Airlines (100 A320neos and 34 A321neos), Chilean carrier JetSMART (56 A320neos and 14 A321neos), Mexican carrier Volaris (46 A320neos and 34 A321neos), and Hungarian-based Wizz Air (72 A320neos and 74 A321neos).

Commercial aircraft bookings for Boeing saw orders totalling 296 jets, including 50 options, which it values at US$50 billion. The largest commercial aircraft order for was from flydubai for 175 Boeing 737 Max aircraft, the largest order for narrow-body aircraft from a Middle Eastern customer to date. This will include Boeing 737 Max 8, Max 9, and the Max 10 jets, which was estimated to be worth around US$12.4 billion.
