Siemens Digital Industries Software is expanding its ecosystem for industrial additive manufacturing (AM) through partnerships with Morf3D, Sintavia and Evolve Additive Solutions. Through these new partnerships, Siemens is adding support for new methods of AM production, strengthening its end-to-end solution for industrialized additive manufacturing as part of its Xcelerator portfolio of software and services.
Siemens’ collaboration with Sintavia, a leading metal additive manufacturer, connects all phases of the AM process and increases automation across these processes. This agreement fits the aerospace and space industry, as it can enable parts to be designed and produced for optimal sustainability through additive manufacturing. By driving their operations with Siemens’ end-to-end software, Sintavia can deliver AM parts more efficiently and cost-effectively.
Siemen’s agreement with Morf3D, an additive engineering and manufacturing service provider, uses the Siemens’ AM software to design, engineer and produce metal-based product innovations across many industries. Through this partnership, Morf3D will accelerate the delivery of more product-enhancing AM applications for companies in a range of industries, leveraging design optimization, AM part qualification, and industrial-scale production.
Siemens agreement with Evolve Additive Solutions, an AM machine developer of STEP technology, will involve the use of Siemens’ AM software to help optimize build preparation, including part slicing and nesting, as well as global production planning, scheduling and execution. STEP enables high-speed, high-accuracy and high-volume thermoplastics AM that equals or exceeds the isotropic properties of injection molding. With this agreement, companies pursuing industrialized additive manufacturing will have access to a joint software/hardware solution that delivers greater speed, flexibility, and repeatability for high-volume AM.
