Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, Morris Technologies (MTI) has become one of the leaders in US in additive-metal manufacturing since 1994. MIT now runs 20 direct metal laser sintering machines from EOS, one EBM and a complete CNC machine shop at their facility. It also specializes in end-to-end product development, from engineering to prototyping to low-volume manufacturing.

 

Modern Machine Shop's Peter Zelinski interviews Greg Morris, CEO/COO of Morris Technologies. In this video below, Mr. Morris discusses the significance of additive manufacturing and why the technology is important right now.

Morris Technologies' new instrumentation lab will be operational by mid-August, 2012. Led by Mike Jorden, who has over 33 years' experience in aerospace instrumentation, this instrumentation lab will be used to design basic-to-complex instrumentation using conventional and additive-metal manufacturing.

"Additive manufacturing offers lower costs, reliability, and flexibility to instrumentation," says MTI president, Bill Noack. "We can deliver a complete solution that is fully integrated into a customer's test. We can apply instrumentation to an existing part or create a body to which sensors can be applied."

"Additive manufacturing's advantage relative to traditional manufacturing is that it unties your hands. If you can think about it in your head, you can build it," says Jorden. "The process wowed me. Instrumentation is an art. In aerospace the goal is to make the measurement device 'invisible' so there is a smaller measurement footprint."
