Tinkerine Studios Ltd., based in Delta, British Columbia, Canada, has announced plans to expand into the metal Additive Manufacturing sector, with the development of a ‘Made in Canada’ metal powder AM machine. 

Established in 2012, Tinkerine is a leading Canadian manufacturer of PLA and composite-based filament AM machines. The company states that its mission is to provide a foundational understanding of applied design driven by Additive Manufacturing, and its range of AM products and educational resources aims to equip future generations with innovative tools and products.

According to the company, metal Additive Manufacturing is seen as the AM technology that can have the highest amount of impact on production, due to materials used for the industrial, aerospace and automotive industries.

“Through applied design and the knowledge gained in the 3D Additive Manufacturing space, Tinkerine believes there is a significant opportunity to be a leading player in the metal powder space. Design has been initiated for the development of systems for a powder-based unit,” stated Eugene Suyu, CEO of Tinkerine Studios Ltd. “Our aim is to produce a machine with the capacity to process materials including aluminium to titanium Powder.”
