On October 24th, Canada Makes forth Additive Manufacturing Forum successfully concluded by bringing Canadian and international AM experts together under one roof at the University of Waterloo. The level of discourse featured during the day in booth the networking and presentations signals Canada has taken big steps towards developing world-class Additive Manufacturing (AM) capabilities.
The event kicked off with Germany’s Mathias Gebauer from Fraunhofer IWU who gave a great presentation covering some of the fascinating things they are doing. His presentation was highlighted by topics such as embedding thermocouple sensors directly into SLM parts while the SLM part is being built, selectively removing powder from a SLM build and replacing it with a second material in paste form which is then processed to become solid.
Following this was Cassidy Silbernagel, one of Canada’s rising stars in AM, who reviewed Design for AM guidelines as well as presenting a past, present and future look at AM in the automotive industry.
After some networking with leading AM companies taking part in this years Canada Makes Scrum was the panel on conformal cooling. The panel, moderated by Ed Bernard of Crest Mold and including panelists Wes Byleveld of Exco Engineering, Annette Langhammer of NMC Dynaplas and Tom Houle from Matsuura Machinery, who discussed the work that is happening with plastic and metal dies in Canada, which is currently saving a lot of money to manufacturers in terms of reduced cycle times, scrap reduction, and increased machine up-time due to more robust and reliable processes. Listening to this session one can certainly believe that Conformal cooling is Canada’s entry into seeing success with AM technology.
Also presenting were Dylan Yazbeck who gave us a glimpse into the world of computed tomography for AM parts. He was followed by one of the day’s keynote speakers, Peter Adams CEO & President Burloak Technologies, who shared some of the challenges faced in the emerging AM market and what Burloak Technologies is currently working on in the aerospace industry. He also gave us a peak at their new 60,000 sq foot facility and described how some of the 100 million plus investment by Samuel &Sons will be used.
One of the highlights of the day was to hear a great panel moderated by Mark Kirby of Renishaw Canada and included panelists Roger Eybel of Safran Safran Landing Systems, Mathieu Fagnan of Pratt & Whitney Canada as well as Steve Slusher from AddWorks. They discussed the some of the challenges faced by the Aerospace setor in adopting AM.
Finishing off the day were presentations from François Charron-Doucet on positive environmental impacts, which the AM industry can take advantage of, as well as updates in the medical field from Martin Petrak from Precision ADM and Olivier Marcotte of the CRIQ.
Overall, it was a great day with plenty of high-level networking and information sharing from all of those in attendance.
Stay tuned for our next event!
