Burloak adds second metal Additive Manufacturing facility in California

July 16, 2021

Burloak Technologies Inc, headquartered in Oakville, Ontario, Canada, a division of Samuel, Son & Co., Limited, has established its second Additive Manufacturing centre in Camarillo, California, USA. The new 2,300 m2 facility boosts the manufacturing capacity available at the company’s 6,000 m2 AM Center of Excellence, located in Oakville.

Between the two facilities, Burloak offers Laser Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB), Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB), Binder Jetting (BJT) and both wire and powder Directed Energy Deposition (DED) technologies. These AM capabilities are offered alongside post-production services, including design, engineering, CNC machining, heat treatment and finishing capabilities.

Formerly operating as CalRAM, the facility, assets and equipment have been acquired from Carpenter Technology Corporation, based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Burloak and Carpenter Technology have formed a further agreement to collaborate on future product design and development opportunities, with Carpenter Technology becoming the preferred metal powder supplier for certain Design for AM (DfAM) projects led by Burloak.

“DfAM expertise, combined with scalable manufacturing capacity, is often the missing link for customers seeking to embrace additive,” stated Colin Osborne, president and CEO of Samuel, Son & Co. “The establishment of our multi-site capacity, along with our expanded relationship with Carpenter Technology, further demonstrates our commitment to closing this gap. By leveraging the expertise Samuel has in large-scale manufacturing, along with Burloak’s deep additive experience, we offer customers the easiest, most direct path to develop and scale even their most complex Additive Manufacturing projects.”

Carpenter Technology is a provider of high-performance speciality alloy-based materials and process solutions for critical applications in the aerospace, transportation, defence, energy, industrial, medical and consumer electronics markets.

In addition to the expanded collaboration agreement with Carpenter Technology, Burloak has recently announced relationships with The Boeing Company, MDA Ltd., Smiths HP and the National Research Council of Canada, and is actively working with additional leaders in the space, aerospace, automotive and industrial markets.
