OAKVILLE, Ont. — Burloak Technologies‘ 65,000-square-foot Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence is now fully operational.
The $104-million facility offers laser powder bed fusion, electron beam powder bed, electron beam wire and directed energy laser fusion. These technologies are combined with materials and post-production services, including design, engineering, CNC machining, heat treatment and finishing capabilities.
The company, a division of Samuel, Son & Co. Ltd., purchased an EBAM 110 system that will deliver the industry’s largest, near net-shape metal 3D printed parts. It’s accepting development projects for the system, with full production capability expected in the third quarter.
Originally planned as a 45,000-square-foot facility, the Centre of Excellence has been expanded to include dedicated development, new product introduction and serial production capacity to accommodate the migration of customer projects from concept to full-scale production in a single location.
Burloak supplies leading aerospace, space and energy companies.
