London, ON — Additive Manufacturing (AM) using Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) is an emerging discipline that can improve tool, die and mould makers’ manufacturing processes. The Canadian Tooling & Machining Association (CTMA) has teamed up with National Research Council Canada (NRC) to bring you a one-day technical workshop focused on advanced laser application processes.

The workshop takes place on October 17, 2012, at the NRC Institute in London, ON. Laser experts from NRC and business will show how industry can best use the NRC resources in the hardfacing of tool steels for the tool, die and mould making industry with ultra-hard, high-quality surfaces for the blanking, forming and drawing of advanced hot steel or high strength steels by demonstrating the machine and modelling software to solve today’s toughest challenges.

The workshop is appropriate for owners, tool suppliers, material suppliers, tool die and mould designers, engineers of all levels and manufacturing decision-makers who are interested in learning more about NRC’s Additive Manufacturing Laser Metal Deposition and how it can be used.

The even runs from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and takes place at the National Research Council Canada facility at 800 Collip Circle in London. The fee is $50 for members of CTMA, CAMM, APMA and CME, and $75 for non-members (all fees subject to HST).
