Wohlers, CRIQ offer additive manufacturing training in Montreal
May 10, 2018 - Independent consulting firm Wohlers Associates has entered into a partnership with Québec Industrial Research Centre (CRIQ) to offer three days of intensive training on design for additive manufacturing (DfAM).The course is targeted at designers, engineers and managers wanting to learn how to design parts that fully benefit from additive manufacturing.
Training topics include the consolidation of many parts into a fewer number of them, topology optimization, lattice/mesh structures, best practices, and DfAM rules and guidelines. Participants will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience by designing parts for additive manufacturing (AM) and building them on industrial AM equipment during the course.
The CRIQ, owned by the province, believes the partnership will help contribute to a more skilled workforce.
“The CRIQ has always been ahead of the curve in the adoption and commercialization of new technologies. Partnering with organizations such as Wohlers Associates to train our workers is part of our strategic mission to help companies transition to innovative manufacturing,” said Denis Hardy, president and CEO of the CRIQ.
The DFAM training will take place at the CRIQ’s Montreal research facility June 12 to 14.
“We are very excited about holding this training in Canada in partnership with such a great research institution,” said Terry Wohlers, president of Wohlers Associates. “AM is changing the face of modern manufacturing, but it requires professionals that can design complex parts and understand the full AM production process. This is why our DfAM course was created.”
