About Moog Additive

Moog leads in expanding process knowledge, equipment capacity, and customer support in metal additive manufacturing (Metal AM). Black-box design, material qualifications, advanced process troubleshooting, and state-of-the-art inspection capabilities are resulting in next-generation applications for several critical manufacturing industries. Backed by solid engineering support and in-depth additive and subtractive production experience, our capabilities create and maintain a customer-first culture second to none. We offer additive manufacturing services from design through build and post-build processing to inspection. Whether you have a part ready to print or simply an idea, contact us to put our expertise to work for you.

AM Innovation at Moog

Moog excels in bringing additive manufacturing designs to projects where additional performance is needed while other dimensions like cost and part volume are constrained. For example, we have proven that it is possible to increase efficiency in valves by improving flow without adding power or orifice sizes. Let us bring our experience to bear on your next challenge.

Engineered AM Process Control

Moog has created a state-of-the-art facility in which all major sources of process variability have been controlled to produce the highest quality additive parts. Temperature, humidity, particulates, and static are each held in the optimal range. Materials are sourced from the best suppliers and are fully traceable. LPBF machines are maintained by our in-house staff working in consultation with OEMs and to mutually agreed specifications. Most critically, Moog engineers and technicians continually update the company’s knowledge base through training, industry events, and ongoing education. Moog holds itself accountable in each of these areas through written processes.

Moog joins in development AM industry standards

Manufacturing parts with additive (3D printing) equipment at production rate and scale will require the acceptance of industry standards for raw materials, processing, and qualification. This prerequisite will vary by industry and application, but in every case where an additive solution is adopted for production, designers and engineers will require standards that can be referenced and against which end-use articles can be verified.

Space Enterprise Disruptors

Moog is focused on working with the newly-established US Space Force and the National Reconnaissance Office, according to Rob Atkins, Moog National Security Space Manager, who added, “We have a long history of supporting launch vehicles and defence systems in space.” A former US Air Force Lt-Col, Atkins pointed out the most promising approach to a responsive launch is to create a Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) and have that effectively sit aside in the factory waiting for callup. “Using a propulsive ESPA [Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle (EELV) Secondary Payload Adapters] like Moog’s Orbital Maneuvering Vehicle (OMV) is the best approach to responsive and flexible operations,” he told MilTech.

Moog Advanced Manufacturing Using Artificial Intelligence

Moog continues a strong tradition of innovation to revolutionize manufacturing. We are making complex metal parts through a metal additive manufacturing process called Laser Powder Bed Fusion.  It allows engineers to create more complex parts than ever before and promises to increase the performance of systems using additively manufactured components or assemblies. Now, we’re deploying Artificial Intelligence to help inspect the quality of work.

Launching New Capabilities: Insights on Advanced Manufacturing at Moog

Smart factory initiatives often involve complex projects and new technology deployments, even before adding in the complications faced in 2020. How are leading manufacturers managing smart factory advancements strategically in this climate? Earlier this fall MAPI spoke with Bill Massaro, Director of Advanced Manufacturing in the Aerospace and Defense Sector at Moog, to learn from his experience.  


A Strategy To Differentiate with Additive Manufacturing

Where does metal additive manufacturing add value to the aerospace and defense industry? Moog has been exploring this question since 2011. Moog's products are utilized in mission critical applications like steering a missile or keeping a satellite in orbit. The requirements that accompany these applications are some of the arduous in the industry.
