Get a behind-the-scenes tour of Mohawk’s Additive Manufacturing Resource Centre (AMRC).

The AMRC is the only academic research facility that can produce 3D Printed  metal parts, using DMLS technology.  The AMRC focuses on applied research and education in additive manufacturing in order to support industry growth and sector development. A 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

Through our state-of-the art Additive Manufacturing Resource Centre (AMRC), staffed by research and technical staff with extensive experience in supporting industry 3D printing needs, we can connect industry with engineering co-op students that will provide direct support to companies using the voucher. These students will be supported by AMRC staff, technicians and researchers. Co-op and part time student contracts are one semester in duration (3 semesters per year) at the AMRC, which provides Mohawk with continuous capacity to develop customized service packages for each company using a voucher.

The operation of the lab has been supported by NSERC and CFI. Funding support has also been received from OCE and NRC-IRAP.
