Morf3D, a metals additive manufacturing firm in El Segundo, Calif., has received additional funding from Boeing's venture capital arm to expand its production footprint in order to meet the demand among aerospace clients.
“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,” Brian Schettler, senior managing director of Boeing HorizonX Ventures. “We continue to work closely with Morf3D to help them bring innovation through additive manufacturing to more aerospace manufacturing partners,“ Schettler added.
The new round of funding came more than a year after Boeing HorizonX Ventures made an investment in Morf3D to help develop additive manufacturing methods and engineering capabilities.
Founded in 2015, Morf3D helps Boeing, Collins Aerospace, Honeywell and other aerospace original equipment manufacturers develop, produce and qualify additive manufacturing-based components for flight.
