Vaughan-Based AMM Partners with the UNB and CanmetMaterials for Hybrid Builds in Additive Manufacturing

Vaughan-based Additive Metal Manufacturing (AMM) partnering with the University of New Brunswick (UNB) and CanmetMaterials is validating hybrid builds for diecasting and injection molding applications.

AMM hybrid build metalVaughan-based Additive Metal Manufacturing (AMM) partnering with the University of New Brunswick (UNB) and CanmetMaterials is validating hybrid builds for diecasting and injection molding applications. A hybrid build is an innovative technique where subtractive and additive processes are combined to achieve maximum economic advantage.

“Cooperative projects that increase capability and value to Canada’s additive manufacturing supply chain is a win for the whole country,” said Frank Defalco, Manager Canada Makes.

The hybrid build process offers considerable cost benefit where the functioning part of an insert is smaller than the non-functional part and the cost of building the larger portion using additive technology can be expensive.
