In five years Canada will have its first full production additive manufacturing and advanced manufacturing centre. Dundas based Burloak Engineered Solutions Inc. announced that it is in the process of assembling additive manufacturing machines, and in five years, the company will spend about $11.5 million on equipment to establish the centre.

The facility will feature the first production DMLS (metal printing) system in Canada along with SLS (plastic) and state of the art subtractive systems. In support of this business plan the company concluded a private equity investment in July.

The focus of the investment will be to serve customers in the aerospace, defence, energy, medical, architectural, automotive and industrial manufacturing sectors with prototype, development and production level additive manufacturing services and engineered solutions. The company is already ISO9001:2008 certified and will be AS9100 and ISO17025 registered by the end of 2014.

"We are focused on growing our business both organically and through strategic acquisitions in order to deliver world leading solutions to our customers in the areas of 3D printing, advanced manufacturing, metrology and engineering services." says the company.

"Over the years we have invested in leading edge technologies and delivered high quality services that have seen our team working on projects in North America, South America, Asia and Europe. We will continue this investment over the coming years as we continue to strengthen our value proposition."

The company also announced that it has begun commissioning the first round of machines which is made up of equipment from EOS (SLS & DMLS 3D printers) and Elliott Matsuura (5 Axis, 4 Axis and 3 Axis machining and CMM systems) and expects to begin production in mid-August 2014.

As part of its strategy, the company is rebranding under the corporate name Burloak Technologies Inc. with two wholly owned subsidiary companies, Burloak Advanced Manufacturing Inc. and Burloak Engineered Solutions Inc. The Advanced Manufacturing operations will provide the additive and advanced subtractive services while Burloak Engineered Solutions will provide metrology, onsite inspection, alignment, 3D scanning, reverse engineering, CAD and tooling services.
