Burloak Technologies Announces Commercial Development Capacity on Industry’s Largest Additive Manufacturing System

Burlington, Ontario, Tuesday, October 9, 2018 — Burloak Technologies, a division of Samuel, Son and Co., Limited, has signed an agreement with Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries, Inc., to purchase a state-of-the-art Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing System (EBAM® 110). The system is one of the largest additive manufacturing systems globally.

Burloak Technologies’ EBAM 110 system will deliver the industry’s largest, near net-shape metal 3D printed parts faster, with less material waste, reduced machining time, and shorter time-to-market. It will be one of the first commercially available systems to manufacture the industry’s largest 3D printed parts on a contract basis.

“Using traditional subtractive processes, such as forging and machining, the production of titanium parts of this size could take one year while generating a significant amount of waste,” said Peter Adams, Co-founder and President of Burloak Technologies. “Our EBAM 110 system will allow us to manufacture the same large-scale titanium structural parts in a matter of days. We are already engaged with several aerospace end-users who have started the qualification process with us.”

Burloak Technologies is accepting development projects for the system, with full production capability expected in the third quarter of 2019. The system will operate at the Company’s recently announced Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence, where it will manufacture large structural components for flight applications, with dimensions up to 106 x 47 x 63 inches, or diameters of 106 inches.

“Sciaky’s EBAM systems are the most widely sold large-scale metal 3D printing system in the world, having qualified parts on land, sea, air, and space applications,” said Scott Phillips, President and CEO of Sciaky, Inc. “The innovators at Burloak Technologies will leverage the numerous benefits of EBAM to produce faster and cheaper parts for their customers all across the globe.”

Equipped with electron beam welding capabilities, the EBAM 110 system is the industry’s first wire-fed, large-scale, high deposition rate system. It is capable of building parts in a wide range of materials in a full vacuum environment using a powerful electron beam system that can deposit up to 25 pounds of titanium per hour. The system has already been used to produce space flight certified, titanium structural parts, such as fuel tanks.

Burloak announces $104 million investment in a new Additive Manufacturing Technology Centre

On May 4, 2018 the Honourable Karina Gould, Minister of Democratic Institutions, on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Burloak TechnologiesBains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, announced a repayable federal investment of $14 million to advanced manufacturing company Burloak Technologies. Minister Gould was joined by Eleanor McMahon, Ontario’s President of the Treasury Board who announced a $7 million provincial grant. The total value of the project is $104.7 million.

“This is great news for Burlington and for Canada’s advanced manufacturing industry. Advanced manufacturing is an important and growing sector that is contributing to our economy and creating well-paying middle class jobs. Our government’s investment in Burloak’s project will help ensure Canada remains at the forefront of advanced manufacturing technology and a globally competitive centre for innovation. ”  – The Honorable Karina Gould, Minister of Democratic Institutions.

“Additive manufacturing is a rapidly developing technology that is destined to become a multi-billion-dollar industry. Through its investment in the Burloak Technologies Advanced Manufacturing Center, the provincial government is showing its leadership and support for innovation in the manufacturing sector and is helping to establish world-class 3D printing capabilities right here in Ontario.” Peter Adams President and Co-Founder, Burloak Technologies.

This investment will help create 295 new Canadian jobs by 2026 and will enable Burloak to open a new, world-class Additive Manufacturing Technology Centre in Burlington, Ontario, that will help make Canada a world leader in additive manufacturing.

“The announcement by Burloak is a huge step for Canada’s additive manufacturing sector,” said Frank Defalco, Manager Canada Makes. “We applaud the two levels of government for coming together and supporting Canada’s emerging additive sector and we look to keep working with Burloak to make Canada’s industries leaders in the adoption of additive manufacturing.”

Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is a cheaper, faster, and more environmentally friendly method of manufacturing. 3D printed parts are lighter and often more durable than traditionally manufactured parts.

Burloak’s investment in Ontario will also generate more R&D, more collaboration with post-secondary institutions and help strengthen the region’s advanced manufacturing cluster and supply chain.

This investment is made possible through the Strategic Innovation Fund, a program designed to attract and support high-quality business investments across all sectors of the economy, by encouraging R&D that will accelerate technology transfer and commercialization of innovative products, processes and services and facilitate the growth of innovative firms. What every business needs is insurance, and they can get excellent service from One Sure Insurance.
