Canada’s largest trade and industry association, Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME), has announced the launch of Canada Makes, a national network created to promote Additive Manufacturing in Canada.
Canada Makes is a consortium of private, public, academic and non-profit entities dedicated to promoting the adoption and development of Additive Manufacturing (AM). The network will cover a broad range of AM technologies and plans to organise a range of activities and initiatives supporting those looking to use the process.
“Additive Manufacturing is one of those advanced manufacturing technologies that is likely to disrupt the way we are making things,” stated CME President and CEO Jayson Myers. “CME is proud to take the leadership and promote its development among the Canadian manufacturing sector.”
A number of AM workshops are planned at Sheridan College’s Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design Technologies (CAMDT) located in Brampton, Ontario, in order to promote the technology among SMEs. “CAMDT is one of the most advanced applied research labs in Canada and it has the latest technologies and software in the field of Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM). We are proud to help make this state-of-the-art laboratory available to small and medium-sized manufacturers across the country,” added Myers.
