Nikon renames Morf3D to Nikon AM Synergy | VoxelMatters

Nikon Corporation (Nikon) is strategically realigning its subsidiary Morf3D Inc. (Morf3D), transforming it and relaunching it under the new name Nikon AM Synergy Inc. (Nikon AM Synergy). Following Nikon’s full acquisition of Morf3D in July 2023, the company has undergone a significant reorganization to better support Nikon’s advanced manufacturing business strategy.

This transformation includes new leadership and a refreshed mission to align with Nikon’s broader goals. The reorganization includes a decisive transition away from the former general contract manufacturing (CM) services office, which led to the closure of the El Segundo, California, location and the divestiture of non-essential equipment.

Currently operating out of Nikon’s Advanced Business Unit in Long Beach, California, Nikon AM Synergy is dedicated to accelerating the implementation and scale-up of metal additive manufacturing (AM) for cutting-edge applications, with a focus on the defense and aerospace sectors. This will be achieved by integrating Nikon SLM Solutions AG’s leading Laser Powder Fusing (L-PBF) technology and Nikon’s internally developed Directed Energy Deposition (DED) solutions, enhanced with leading metallurgical and metrology capabilities.

Nikon AM Synergy will offer specialized capabilities in an ultra-secure environment in the United States, meeting the rigorous security requirements of defense and aerospace customers. These capabilities are supported by a newly revitalized business development team with deep industry knowledge and already delivering results for strategic customers.

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

This reorganization is a key step in Nikon’s drive to put digital production at the core of its growth, underscoring the company’s commitment to innovation and industry leadership.
