The new Canadian centre, it says, is the latest step in its investment into making additive manufacturing a mainstream manufacturing technology used in series production in various industries, including: aerospace, medical, automotive, oil and gas and consumer products.
Staffed with application engineers, the solutions centre provides customers with access to additive manufacturing technology and expertise at a “predictable, manageable cost,” explains the U.K.-based company, adding that customers can also gain knowledge and confidence in a “secure” development environment.
“The new solutions centre will provide customers with a cost-effective, rapid learning environment where companies can build confidence and knowledge in the applications of additive manufacturing,” said Marc Saunders, director of global solutions centres. “The Canadian centre forms a vital node in the global network.”
