About Additive Manufacturing Users Group
The Additive Manufacturing Users Group’s origins date back to the early 1990s when the founding industry users group was called 3D Systems North American Stereolithography Users Group, a users group solely focused on the advancement of stereolithography (SL) use with the owners and operators of 3D Systems’ equipment. Today, AMUG educates and supports users of all additive manufacturing technologies. The primary charter of the group remains the same, but its members are much more diversified, global and focused in advancing additive manufacturing technology for rapid manufacturing and prototyping. http://www.amug.com

Canada Makes’ UK trade mission successfully concludes

Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters’ (CME) Canada Makes trade mission to the UK started June 6th with visits to Renishaw and GKN Aerospace and ended June 9th at the University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) Factory of the Future. The fact-finding initiative brings together additive manufacturing (AM) experts from Canada and the UK with the goal of learning more about this emerging technology.

Leading the mission is CME’s CEO & President Jayson Myers, “the technology and capabilities of both Renishaw and GKN are very impressive and the discussions very interesting,” said Myers. “Making connections and introducing new concepts is the reason CME leads trade missions.”

Canada Makes’ second international trade mission started with a tour of Renishaw, a world leading engineering and scientific technology companies, with expertise in precision measurement and healthcare. Renishaw supplies products and services used in applications as diverse as jet engine and wind turbine manufacture, through to dentistry and brain surgery. It is also a world leader in the field of additive manufacturing where it is the only UK business that designs and makes industrial machines, which ‘print’ parts from metal powder.

The next stop was GKN Aerospace, one of the world’s largest independent first tier suppliers to the global aviation industry. With over 100 years aerospace experience, they harness considerable knowledge and advanced manufacturing technologies to supply high-value, integrated assemblies in both metallic and composite materials.

The mission continues with visits to Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), their facility provides an unparalleled environment for the development and demonstration of new technologies on an industrial scale. Following MTC is a networking lunch on additive manufacturing R&D at Magenta Solutions.

The following day includes the University of Nottingham’s EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Additive Manufacturing, a nucleus of research activity focused on next generation multifunctional AM technology.

Concluding the trade mission is the University of Sheffield’s the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (Nuclear AMRC), and the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) Factory of the Future. Together they form the core of the University of Sheffield AMRC group, a collaboration of academic and industrial partners from across the manufacturing supply chain.

Trade Mission: Canada Makes to visit the UK

Canada Makes is leading a trade mission to the UK this coming June 6th.  The delegation will visit institutions using metal additive manufacturing with a particular emphasis on aerospace.

Following Canada Makes’ successful trade mission to Germany this past January, it was decided more international trade missions for Canada’s additive manufacturing sector would be good business.

“The Canada Makes Trade Mission to Germany was a great way for our company to connect with international additive manufacturing leaders,” said Martin Petrak, the President and CEO of Precision ADM. “We also took the opportunity to meet with other Canadian companies interested in collaborating on national and international business opportunities.”

This mission includes a full four-day agenda, including visits to Renishaw, GKN Aerospace, the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), The Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre and Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre AMRC both at the University of Sheffield and likely Jaguar.

In addition to your own travel and accommodation costs, Canada Makes/CME will charge an administration fee of $500.

A limited number of spaces are available on a first-come-first serve basis.
