Is your company interested in 3d printing of complex metal parts?
NRC-IRAP is collaborating with the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) to assist Canadian companies in determining feasibility of using metal additive manufacturing processes for their own applications. Last year this initiative engaged 100 companies from all regions of Canada and 55 of them successfully manufactured 3d printed metal prototype parts out of which 17 were contracts with multi-national enterprises.
This program continues this year. The goal is to manufacture test coupons or sample parts and determine technical and business feasibility for each individual case. The approximate value of the service provided for each company is $6,000 to $10,000. The technical work may be completed by the contractor of the CME and the firm’s choice. The following are some of the proven contractors: NRC London and Boucherville, Mohawk College, CEGAP Trois Rivieres, NAIT, CRIQ, Precision ADM, Renishaw Canada.
The program is available until March 22, 2019 and will be available on the `first-come-first-served` basis. Interested companies need to be IRAP eligible and referred by an IRAP Advisor. CME will manage each case and review technical and business feasibility. There is no cost to the company and you do not need to write a formal proposal.
The advantages of metal additive manufacturing/3D printing are extreme design flexibility, ability to manufacture hollow shapes, ability to have multi-material multilayered structures, ability to make one-of parts without any additional tooling and much more. One of the most promising applications has been manufacturing of custom fixtures and tooling for various manufacturing processes.
