Burloak Technologies to Open Additive Manufacturing Center

The Ontario facility is set to open in September of 2018. 

Burloak Technologies, a division of Samuel, Son & Co., has announced the establishment of its Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. The 40,000-square-foot facility will open in September 2018 and is expected to be fully operational in the first quarter of 2019 as the company's existing operations are transferred.

The Center will accelerate the industry's adoption of additive manufacturing by providing services to move customer projects from concept, to optimized design for additive manufacturing (DFAM), to full-scale production in a single location, the company says.

"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," says Peter Adams, 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."
