Element Materials Technology has signed a multi-year contract with Morf3D Inc. that will consist in providing the aerospace additive manufacturing company with a full range of cutting-edge materials testing.
Element is an independent provider of materials and product qualification testing, inspection and certification services. The company supplies its services across industries that need to meet the most stringent requirements: Aerospace; Transportation & Industrials; Energy, Fire & Building Products; and Connected Technologies sectors.
This three-year contract is not the first partnership between both companies. The US-based aerospace company had previously taken advantage of Element’s testing services. Element’s strategic location and reliability in service standards and technical expertise have actually play to its strengths in the acquisition of this contract.
Rick Sluiters, EVP Aerospace at Element, said: “This long-term partnership with a highly innovative and technically demanding customer like Morf3D is testament to the technical expertise and the high levels of customer service from the Element team in California. Collaborative communication and faster than industry standard delivery puts us ahead of the game in testing for the aerospace supply chain.
“Our extensive testing capacity, preferential pricing and delivery standards offer customers a fully integrated suite of services for technically advanced testing for the additive manufacturing industry. We are pleased to be working with Morf3D and other leading businesses in the sector and we’ll continue to invest in this technology.”
The contract will also enable Element to leverage its new equipment for powder characterization technology designed for the additive design and manufacturing supply chain. The new tests include chemical composition analysis; powder sieve analysis; particle size distribution; flow rate; apparent density; tap density; and gas pycnometry.
As for Morf3D Inc., the company that recently acquired a Solukon powder removal system is showing the industry important steps that any aerospace AM company worthy of the name has to undertake to expand its value chain.
