Waterloo building global-scale AM lab

The University of Waterloo has secured $22.4 million cash and $5 million in in-kind support to establish a Multi-Scale Additive Manufacturing (AM) Lab that’s expected to generate 18 new partnerships, create more than 80 jobs and commercialize 21 advanced manufacturing technologies. Core funding of $8.9 million comes from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario, with the Ontario government providing an additional $6.2 million — the largest investment the province has made in post-secondary AM. Once fully ramped up, it’s expected to be among the 10 largest university-based AM facilities in the world.
