Siemens and Materials Solutions has officially opened a new innovation center in Orlando, Florida. The center is the only one of its kind in the U.S. to offer a unique pairing of design with manufacturing, implementing robotics, rapid prototyping, scanning, digital tools and on-site metal additive manufacturing. The Siemens innovation center will focus on rapid problem solving supporting the company’s energy businesses, while Materials Solutions will offer additive services to support the innovation center and external customers.
The 17,000 sq. ft. center is equipped with the latest manufacturing and inspection technologies enabling faster solutions for industry opportunities, and encouraging innovation for the creation of new, advanced components and digital solutions. With a clear focus on developing world-class prototypes and services, the center will encourage the fostering of new ideas, methodologies and business models and boasts the latest automation tools such as robotic machines, 3D printer, and 3D scanners.
Materials Solutions – a Siemens Business - is a pioneer in the use of Selective Laser Melting (SLM) technology for the manufacture of high-performance metal parts, with a focus on high-temperature super alloys. Siemens acquired the originally UK-based company in 2016 and has since expanded not only the Worcester, England site, but also the global additive manufacturing network. With the new location in Orlando Materials Solutions will serve the US market especially in the energy and aerospace sector.
