Burloak Establishes Second Manufacturing Center in North America
Burloak Technologies Inc., a division of Samuel, Son & Co. Limited, is establishing its second additive manufacturing center in Camarillo. With the addition of this facility, Burloak Technologies becomes North America’s first multi-site additive manufacturing services provider, offering full Design for Additive Manufacturing (DFAM) expertise at scale.
The new 25,000-square-foot facility bolsters the manufacturing capacity available at the company’s 65,000-square-foot Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence located in Oakville, Ontario. Between the two facilities, Burloak offers laser powder bed fusion, electron beam powder bed, metal binder jet and powder, and wire DED technologies.
Formerly operating as CalRAM, the facility, assets and equipment have been acquired from Carpenter Technology Corporation. In addition to this transaction, Burloak and Carpenter Technology have formed an agreement to collaborate on future product design and development opportunities, and Carpenter Technology will become the preferred powdered metals supplier for certain DFAM projects led by Burloak.
