METAL ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING (AM) AT MOOG 

In December 2015 Moog acquired an equity ownership of Linear Mold & Engineering. In 2017 Moog fully acquired this company, which will now be referred to as Moog Linear. Moog gained metal additive technology and expertise with this acquisition. With over a decade of experience in metal 3D printing for customers, Moog Linear had gained hard-won practical knowledge on serial production of AM metal parts.

With the addition of Moog Linear’s capabilities, we moved forward in supporting even the most demanding metal AM use cases. Moog has a dedicated engineering team focusing on AM research, and Moog Linear focuses on AM production. The two work closely together to develop technology and process development roadmaps. This brings us to the certification of AM Parts for critical applications.
