Attend an Exclusive Tour of Sheridan’s 3D Printers & Production System and Robotic Manufacturing Lab

May 20, 2014

Sheridan’s Alumni Office will be hosting an exclusive open house, open to the public and media, to showcase the new 3D production system and robotic manufacturing systems at Sheridan’s Centre of Advanced Manufacturing and Design Technologies (CAMDT). A 3D printer demo and a robotics demo will be provided by Sheridan faculty during the tour.

“This type of equipment is normally reserved for large commercial enterprises,” says Dr. Farzad Rayegani, Associate Dean of Sheridan’s School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering and Technology.  “No other post-secondary institution in Canada has this suite of commercial 3D production technology, and small and medium enterprises certainly can’t afford it either. CAMDT provides innovative learning opportunities for students and allows for partnerships with industry in additive manufacturing. It allows us to 3D print advanced functional prototypes, manufacturing tools, jigs and fixtures, and even end use parts. That’s the missing piece that small and medium enterprises need to enhance their production processes, make them more productive, and give them a competitive edge.”
