Mazak Canada is now the latest addition to the Canada Makes network of company active in additive manufacturing as a leadership level partner. Mazak has been contributing to the development of the machine tool industry as a leading global company since 1919 and adding their expertise is a big plus to our network.
Canada Makes, a CME initiative, is a network of private, public, academic, and non-profit entities dedicated to promoting the adoption and development of advanced and additive manufacturing in Canada. It is an enabler and accelerator of AM-adoption in Canada.
“Mazak Canada is excited to be a partner in the Canada Makes Network. As a leader in Additive / Subtractive Direct Energy Deposition technology, we strive to be at the forefront of this manufacturing evolution,” said Ray Buxton, General Manager Mazak Corporation Canada. “Being part of the Canada Makes network will allow us to work closer with industry partners and allow us to better support this emerging technology as it develops into a mainstream manufacturing process.”
