Mohawk's Additive Manufacturing Resource Centre (AMRC) is Ontario's only Additive Manufacturing Resource Centre that can produce metal parts.
The AMRC focuses on applied research in additive manufacturing with the ability to produce 3D models, prototypes, tooling and production parts out of titanium, aluminum, nickel, stainless steel, bronze, plastics and other metals. A direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) printer is available to test variations in a part’s shape, weight, thickness, and density using different grades of metal powder alloy. The AMRC’s plastic 3D printers will also allow industry partners to create preliminary designs before commissioning metal parts or to test new product designs.
The Centre focuses on four categories of projects:
- Testing the feasibility of producing existing products with existing designs using additive manufacturing technology in place of conventional processes.
- Optimizing existing product designs to improve functionality and quality while reducing costs.
- Designing and developing new products using additive manufacturing technology that could not be manufactured using conventional processes.
- Developing and testing new materials to manufacture products using additive manufacturing.
