Strategic investment will boost capacity at additive manufacturer and 3D print specialist – and affirms Boeing HorizonX’s commitment to Manufacturing 4.0
Boeing HorizonX has made an additional investment into metals additive manufacturer Morf3D to help expand capacity.
The Boeing HorizonX Ventures investment portfolio consists of companies specialising in technologies for aerospace and manufacturing innovations. California-based Morf3D specialises in metal-based additive engineering and manufacturing design. The company uses advanced software and engineering expertise to reduce manufactured component mass and enhance performance, enabling the creation of lighter and stronger 3D-printed parts for aerospace applications.
Morf3D also provides advisory services in additive manufacturing strategy and to assist the adoption of technology.
Extending our commitment to Industry 4.0
Boeing HorizonX Ventures senior managing director Brian Schettler said: “Our latest strategic investment in Morf3D extends our commitment to our Industry 4.0 efforts —technologies that can transform aerospace supply chains for future growth and competitiveness.
“We continue to work closely with Morf3D to help them bring innovation through additive manufacturing to more aerospace manufacturing partners.”
Morf3D has recently expanded its additive production capacity and increased investment in precision machining technologies. Increase in demand has also lead to headcount growth within its support staff.
Morf3D founder and CEO Ivan Madera said: “It is amazing to see our strategy come to life! Our vision to become a world-class leader in metals additive manufacturing for the aerospace industry is truly taking form.
“At Morf3D, we don’t sell parts in the traditional sense. We sell a process that evokes certainty.”
