Canada Makes Forum: Additive Manufacturing Supply Chain & Logistics

CME Canada Makes and the University of Waterloo Present: Additive Manufacturing Supply Chain & Logistics Forum

How 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing is impacting the supply chain and industrial logistics of manufacturing.Canada Makes AM Forum

This one-day forum is to feature industrial leaders in supply chain and logistics in the additive manufacturing/3D Printing sector. CME Canada Makes continues offering insight and expertise for Canada’s industry leaders with the mission of assisting companies to adopt additive manufacturing, a key component of Industry 4.0 implementation.

Supply chains are and will be affected in significant ways as the costs of storing massive amounts of inventory and global shipping are reduced and more parts are customized printed on demand. Key sectors of our economy are being affected in profound ways and Canada Makes is bringing in experts to discuss issues affecting and sometimes disrupting manufacturers’ supply chain. The Canada Makes Forum will focus on Medical, Aerospace, Automotive and Energy and their supply chain.

Join the Canada Makes Forum Networking scrum

Networking with Canada’s AM sector professionals will be front and centre to the Forum. Experts representing various key features to the AM supply chain will be on-site to answer questions on how 3D printing is changing global supply chains.

Canada Makes would like to thank the following companies for joining the Canada Makes Forum networking scrum: AMM, Anubis 3D, Axis Prototype, Cimetrix, CRIQ, Expanse Microtechnologies, Jesse Garant Metrology Center, NRC, Precision ADM, Tiger-Vac.
