Canada Makes Announces New Leadership Partnership with Precision ADM

Precision ADM, a division of the Orthopaedic Innovation Centre (OIC) focused on both metal and polymer advanced digital manufacturing for medical and aerospace applications, has joined Canada Makes, Canada’s Premier Additive Manufacturing Network.  Winnipeg-based Precision ADM will function as a leading member in the Canada Makes network, which is dedicated to promoting the adoption and development of additive manufacturing (AM) in Canada.

“We are pleased to welcome Precision ADM into the Canada Makes community,” said Martin Lavoie, Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters’ (CME) director of policy for manufacturing competitiveness and innovation. “As Canada’s advanced manufacturing sector evolves it is vital that we connect industry leaders like Precision ADM with other leaders in the AM field.”

Medical and aerospace sectors represent some of the highest market potential for the adoption of additive manufacturing, meaning a partnership between Canada Makes and Precision ADM will accelerate Canada’s implementation and commercialization of additively manufactured products.

“Additive manufacturing allows engineers and surgeons at OIC to design medical devices that will allow for patient specific solutions in ways that were not possible with conventional manufacturing methods,” said Martin Petrak, President and CEO of OIC.
