Burloak opens second AM center

Burloak Technologies Inc, a division of metal manufacturer Samuel, Son & Co, has opened an additive manufacturing (AM) center in Camarillo, California.

The 2,300 m3 facility is the second opened by the company, which is now reportedly North America’s first multi-site additive manufacturing services provider. Burloak already owns a 6,000 m3 center in Oakville, Ontario.

The two facilities cover laser powder bed fusion, electron beam powder bed, metal binder jet and powder and wire directed energy deposition DED technologies as well as engineered plastic printing featuring polyether ether ketone (PEEK), Ultem, PCGT, carbon fiber and nylon-based materials using selective laser sintering (SLS) and high-speed extrusion technologies. Burloak says that it also offers post-production services, including design, engineering, CNC machining, heat treatment and finishing.

‘By leveraging the expertise Samuel has in large-scale manufacturing, along with Burloak’s deep additive experience, we offer customers the easiest, most direct path to develop and scale even their most complex additive manufacturing projects,’ said Colin Osborne, Samuel CEO.

Burloak has also recently formed relationships with The Boeing Company, MDA Ltd, SmithsHP and the National Research Council of Canada, and is working with other companeis in the space, aerospace, automotive and industrial markets.
