Canada’s metal additive manufacturing sector received two major announcements from Burloak Technologies.
Burloak is currently installing two new Renishaw AM400 additive metal systems at its Dundas, Ontario location. And, is now able to offer additively manufactured components in Invar 36 as a standard material to all its customers.
The installation of the Renishaw AM400’s continues to show Burloak’s leadership in the AM market. Burloak Technologies President Peter Adams said “2017 will see the installation of several more systems from Renishaw and others as the company continues its push to full serial production.”
The company states the machines will be used for production components with one system dedicated to the production of Titanium and the second to IN718. The existing AM250 is now being moved to IN625 production.
During the next 2 months Burloak will be installing multiple systems dedicated to producing Invar 36 parts. Adams added “the Burloak team has worked hard in developing this material and this move is inline with the company’s plan to have its production machines dedicated to single materials.”
Invar 36 is a unique low expansion material, which has many applications in the electronics, aerospace, defence and optical instrument sectors where its low coefficient of expansion provides additional stability.
