Featured Panel “Machining Challenges in an Additive World”

The Panel will be part of the McGill AM event “Top Business Applications for Additive Manufacturing” February 27, 2019

This coming February 27 is the additive manufacturing event “Top Business Applications of Additive Manufacturing” at McGill in Montreal. Réseau Québec-3D (RQ3D), Canada Makes and McGill University partner for this industry focused event designed to help companies adopt one of the main pillars of Industry 4.0: 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing.

Last week we discussed one of the featured panels “3D Printing and Lightweight Robotic End Of Arm Tooling (EOAT),” and how it is now being used in a number of fields for manufacturing of end devices. This week we’ll have a look at the other featured panel for the day “Machining Challenges in an Additive World.”

Once again we bring in some of Canada’s leading experts on the topic metal additive and machining, the panel will be moderated by Moderator Fabian Sanchez of Siemens and includes panelists; Christian Desravines, Usinage Multiconcept, Éric Thibault, Bell Helicopter and Jared Kozub of Precision ADM.

This panel will be a good opportunity learn about best practices, the advantages and challenges companies are facing in adopting AM.

Discussion will focus on what impacts is AM having on machining and how do the technologies complement each other.

Panelist intend to talk about the importance of the design in the integration of AM through machining and offer a better knowledge of the technology and understand how we can design for AM.

Design for AM is an item that companies are struggling with (Topology optimization, part growth vs shape and loads, distortion due to metal shrinkage, surface finish, etc). Be ready to hear questions about what help AM companies can provide to end-users and the challenges to certify an aircraft part and more.

Join us on February 27 at McGill for this great opportunity to meet and learn from leading practitioners of 3D Printing and join the 4th Industrial revolution. View the agenda

Taking the Lead in Additive Manufacturing conference: A great success

May 31st saw more than 200 industry professionals attend the Taking the Lead in Additive Manufacturing conference in Boucherville, Québec. The day’s sessions included both International and National leaders in additive manufacturing. This was the third annual Réseau Quebec-3D (RQ3D) conference organized jointly by Canada Makes, CRIQ, PRIMA and CRITM.

The knowledge shared by the day’s speakers was both instructive and well suited for the business professionals on hand. The day started with a video message from the Honourable Navdeep Singh Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, followed by the day’s keynote, Greg Morris of GE Additive, and international speakers M. Jalel Nadji, Application Engineer Materialise USA, M. Daan A.J. Kersten, CEO Additive Industries from The Netherlands, Alexandre Lahaye AddUp (Micheline-Fives) France.

Of note was Greg Morris response to a question from the audience about where Canada additive efforts should focus? Canada should really be developing a supply chain that can add more value to its natural resource mineral extraction sector. Afterwards, the audience was treated to a surprise video featuring Cassidy Silbernagel, which lead into Daan Kertens presentation. Cassidy is a two-time winner of Additive Industries Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge. You can view the video here.

During last year’s event RQ3D and Canada Makes signed a collaborative agreement designed to promote 3D printing and help Canadian manufacturers integrate this new technology. Denis Hardy, President & CEO Centre de recherche industrielle du Quebec (CRIQ), said “this conference proves that the strong alliance forged last year between RQ3D and Canada Makes is leading the push in the adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) across Canada.”

“I am very grateful to have been invited to speak at this conference. Canada Makes and RQ3D put together a great agenda with world renowned leaders in additive manufacturing which offered insightful and truly valuable information.” said Martin Petrak, CEO Precision ADM.

Canada Makes would like to thank James Wilson, Deputy Minister of Growth, Enterprise and Trade, Province of Manitoba for attending this years conference and we hope to continue working closely with Manitoba and other provinces in building a world leading AM sector.

The afternoon was highlighted by McGill’s University’s Mathieu Brochu’s presentation about the AM ecosystem and how to achieve an equilibrium. The day also included two significant announcements, first, is a brand new AM training initiative called Fab 3D and a new 3D Printing Design Challenge for Canada’s post secondary students that will include cash prizes.

Canada Makes is very pleased with the positive feedback received for this conference, which now must be considered Canada’s leading Additive manufacturing event. We would like to thank Louis Duhamel for doing a great job as facilitator and look forward to another great event next year.
