Tonya Wolfe and InnoTech Alberta are bringing 3D printing to Alberta’s industries
Posted on: May 31, 2019
Additive Manufacturing, more commonly known as 3D printing, is a process whereby a component is built up layer by layer from a digital 3D drawing that has the benefits of manufacturing parts without the constraints of traditional processing routes and materials. This enables the freedom to use novel design concepts to provide new solutions that can have a variety of outcomes, for example, an increase in performance, on-demand manufacturing, faster times to get product to market, lower inventory costs, or mass customization. InnoTech Alberta is focused on the development of additive manufacturing processes for the energy and industrial manufacturing sector, in particular large scale builds for the oil sands industry. By working with industry and academia, InnoTech Alberta is using advanced manufacturing technologies to help address the unique challenges faced by the energy and resource industry. The adoption of these technologies will help to reshore manufacturing capabilities in the Province and increase our industrial competitiveness.
