Burloak Technologies to provide Additive Manufacturing for satellite applications

July 25, 2020

Burloak Technologies, Oakville, Ontario, Canada, a division of Samuel, Son & Co., Limited, has entered into a five-year agreement with space technology developer MDA, Brampton, Ontario, Canada, for the Additive Manufacturing of parts and components for space-bound satellite antenna applications. 

Under the terms of this agreement, Burloak and MDA will collaborate to optimise the design and manufacturability of a range of antenna technologies. The joint efforts accomplished to date by MDA and Burloak have reportedly led to an increased acceptance of additively manufactured parts for the harsh space environment.

“With challenging technological needs, it’s important that we find the right partner to help us fully leverage the potential of Additive Manufacturing for space applications. We’re confident Burloak Technologies is the ideal supplier to continue supporting our efforts,” commented Mike Greenley, MDA CEO. 

“Over the last two years we have worked closely with MDA’s Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue business to apply and evolve additive manufacturing to their product offerings,” added Colin Osborne, Samuel, Son & Co’s president and CEO. “This collaboration has allowed us to optimise antenna designs in terms of size, mass and performance to create a new set of possibilities for the industry.”
