Montreal, June 6, 2018— Canada Makes partner Nanogrande has moved to a new location in Montreal, multiplying the company’s floor space by four times of its previous business space. Mr. Juan Schneider, president and founder of Nanogrande, warmly welcomed his team to the new workspace this morning. Thanks to PME MTL Centre-Ouest, the company is entering a new phase of development that will see its tremendous increment in production and research capacity.
“This new premise will truly open up the company’s potential for growth and creation,” said Schneider. “We now have the space to fully deploy our research and development department and our new assembly line.”
This new workspace located in Montreal, a city with full technological explosion, will allow the company to get closer to the partners in its sector of activity to propel its development process. At the same time, Montreal being the capital of artificial intelligence, holds the key for Fourth Industrial Revolution, the heart of Nanogrande’s activity.
“We have tried to stay close to our old facility, but the support we received from PME MTL Centre-Ouest convinced us,” said the president of Nanogrande. “The proximity of high-tech research centres, the many young companies in the sector and the determination of local decision-makers persuaded us to move our offices.”
Nanogrande designs, manufactures and sells the world’s first molecular-scale additive printing technology and it combines nanotechnology with additive manufacturing, bridging the gap between semiconductor manufacturing and 3D printing. www.nanogrande.com

Canada Makes is proud to announce Nanogrande as its newest member. Their game-changing direct nanoscale 3D printing technology is putting this Canadian company at the forefront of state-of-the-art additive manufacturing.
“We are proud to be part of Canada Makes, a great network that helps promote the adoption and development of additive manufacturing technologies like we have here at Nanogrande,” said Juan Schneider, CEO of Nanogrande.
Nanogrande is Canada’s first company to developed a new and original 3D printing technology. The innovative layering approach allows Nanogrande to make one-nanometer thick layers with no restrictions in terms of material type, making them the World’s first direct nanoscale 3D printing company. Their approach opens the door for nanoscale additive manufacturing of an infinite number of materials such as carbon nanotubes, graphene, nanodiamonds, nanofibers and even organic materials. What is even more impressive is that their printers can use a wide variety of materials with the precision comparable to expensive lithographic or semiconductors processes at a fraction of the cost.
“Companies who embrace new ways of manufacturing like what Nanogrande offers have the chance to be leaders in their sector,” said Frank Defalco, Manager Canada Makes. “I’m very happy to have them as part of Canada Makes.”
In today’s high-tech world, there is a growing demand for high precision rapid prototyping and for the manufacturing of metals and a myriad of other materials. Conventional manufacturing techniques lack the ability to satisfy these growing demands. 3D printing and lithography techniques have the potential to address the short comings of traditional manufacturing. But current 3D printing technologies are limited in terms of materials, speed and resolution. For instance, powder bed fusion metal 3D printers can only handle spherical microparticles, which are difficult and expensive to produce; thus limiting the type of metals it can print.
Consider the cost of equipment investment, the time from the conception to the final production, including the prototyping phase, as well as the high cost in human expertise and the resources used in semiconductors approaches or classical high precision processes, Nanogrande’s NG-1 and NG-100 3D printers offers definite gains in time and expense.
With this extreme nanoscale precision and the ability to print a wide variety of materials, Nanogrande printers can be an integral part of the production chain for custom designing in various sectors such as defence and aerospace, medical, automotive, flexible electronics, MEMs, photonics and even in semiconductor processing. Nanograde has built strategic alliance’s with tier-one companies supplying aircraft platforms and advance research as well as development laboratories. Materials used in medical and aerospace industries are characterized by their high strength-to-weight ratio, biocompatibility and corrosion resistance, all attributes which make them difficult to machine using traditional metalworking technologies. Nanograde technology is ideally placed to meet and, in some instances, to address the challenges in the above mentioned sectors in terms of quality, speed, cost, precision and material diversity.
Nanogrande, bridges the gap between the high precision, expensive semiconductor processes and cost effective 3D printing techniques with their state-of-the-art nanoscale NG-1 and NG-100 3D printers.
