Siemens and Materials Solutions, a Siemens business, have opened an innovation center in Orlando, Florida.
The center reportedly covers design, manufacturing, robotics, rapid prototyping, scanning, digital tools and on-site metal additive manufacturing (AM).
‘This center is unique, bringing together a multitude of our innovative processes under one roof,’ said Tim Holt, COO of Siemens Gas and Power. ‘The combination of these competencies, with the 12 years of experience in metal additive that Materials Solutions brings, provides us with a distinctive capability to support the development of holistic additive solutions/services to our customers in our energy business, as well as in high-performance industries such as aerospace, automotive and others.’
Materials Solutions specializes in the use of selective laser melting (SLM) technology for the manufacture of metal parts, with a focus on high-temperature super alloys. Siemens acquired the UK-based company in 2016. With the new location, Materials Solutions will serve the US market especially in the energy and aerospace sector, Siemens says.
