Additive manufacturing is one of those advanced manufacturing technologies that is likely to disrupt the way we are making things,” said CME President and CEO Jayson Myers. “CME is proud to take the leadership and promote its development among the Canadian manufacturing sector.”

Canada Makes has been launched in collaboration with Sheridan College’s Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design Technologies (CAMDT), located in Brampton, Ontario. CME and CAMDT will organize three additive manufacturing workshops at CAMDT’s facilities in the next year in order to promote the adoption of additive manufacturing among SMEs.

“CAMDT is one of the most advanced applied research labs in Canada and it has the latest technologies and software in the field of fused deposition modelling (FDM). We are proud to help make this state-of-the-art laboratory available to small and medium-sized manufacturers across the country,” Myers said.

Other areas

Canada Makes will gradually expand into other areas of additive manufacturing and members of the network will also benefit from a customized service aimed at identifying potential partners and source of funding to complete their additive manufacturing projects, from prototyping to applied and fundamental research.
