Ever since Nikon acquired a majority ownership in Morf3D in 2021, the company has continued its activities as a metal 3D printer producer of aerospace and defense parts without much change. With the full acquisition in July 2023, the company started undergoing restructuration to align with Nikon’s overall business strategy.

This transformation includes new leadership and a refreshed mission to align with Nikon’s broader goals. The reorganization involves a decisive shift from the former general-purpose contract manufacturing (CM) service bureau business, leading to the closure of the El Segundo, California location and the divestment of non-essential equipment.

Now operating from Nikon’s advanced manufacturing business unit facility in Long Beach, California as Nikon AM Synergy, Morf3D will continue its mission of delivering parts for demanding sectors such as aerospace and defense.

Not surprisingly, the company’s production environment will now integrate Nikon SLM Solutions AG’s laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) technology (as a reminder, SLM Solutions is now a Nikon company) and Nikon’s internally developed directed energy deposition (DED) solutions, enhanced by premier metallurgy and metrology capabilities.

Nikon AM Synergy will offer specialized capabilities within an ultra-secure environment in the United States.

Commenting on this pivotal development, Hamid Zarringhalam, CEO of Nikon Advanced Manufacturing Inc., global headquarters of advanced manufacturing business unit, stated, “Our strategic realignment has sharpened our focus and optimized our global resources to drive the Nikon Vision 2030 plan forward. By facilitating the adoption, enablement, and scaling of advanced manufacturing solutions, we are positioning Nikon as a leader in on-shore industrial manufacturing. We look forward to announcing the next significant phase of our plan to transform the manufacturing landscape.”

This reorganization marks a crucial step in Nikon‘s journey to establish digital manufacturing as a core growth pillar, underscoring the company’s commitment to innovation and industry leadership.
