New Manufacturing Centre Opening in Oakville
A new top of the line additive manufacturing center will be opening in Oakville this fall.
Burloak Technologies which is a division of Samuel, Son & Co. announced on May 29 that the establishment of its Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence will be coming to Oakville.
The facility will have the latest in technologies.
It will open in September and should be fully operational in the first quarter of 2019 when the company’s existing operations are transferred.
The Centre hopes to make the use of additive manufacturing a standard in the industry. It will do this by providing every service needed to bring customer projects from concept, to optimized design for additive manufacturing, to full-scale production in a single location.
“Additive manufacturing is a rapidly developing technology that creates much lighter, stronger parts while reducing costs by consolidating multiple manufacturing steps into a single process,” said Peter Adams the president and co-founder of Burloak Technologies.
“For these reasons, additive manufacturing is attractive to companies in multiple industries, such as aerospace, automotive and healthcare. However, the barrier to adoption for many companies has been their lack of expertise and equipment. Through this Center, we are removing the obstacles a prospective customer would face on its own, making it easier, faster and less costly for them to make use of this exciting new technology.”
Burloak Technologies is one of the biggest leaders in the additive manufacturing industry. They have many services which include providing engineering, design for additive manufacturing, materials development, high precision CNC machining, post-processing and metrology.
The business also supplies research to leading aerospace, space and energy companies.
