Burloak Technologies Completes In House Heat Treatment Department
We have watched with great interest as Burloak Technologies, an additive manufacturing firm in Burlington, Ontario, Canada has progressed on their state of the art heat treatment department. Today we had the chance to see the facility in person and we have these photos to prove it. These pictures show part of the department and include a Quintus “Hipping” unit (the only commercially available one in Canada by the way) and an Ipsen 2 bar “Titan” vacuum furnace. In this picture you see the team responsible for this impressive feat. From left to right we have; Alex Bast, Hamid Azizi, Paul Tallon, Jason Wright and Gord Montgomery. We are also including a press release the company recently issued about being approved by Boeing.
“January 28, 2021; Burloak Technologies, Oakville, Ontario, Canada, a division of Samuel, Son & Co., Ltd., has been approved by The Boeing Company to additively manufacture aluminium AlSi10Mg components to the Boeing BAC 5673 specification. Burloak Technologies states it is the world’s first additive manufacturer to achieve this qualification. Burloak and Boeing are now working to apply the BAC 5673 specification to several programmes for existing and future components. “This approval marks the completion of a qualification process that included a rigorous evaluation of Burloak’s capabilities by Boeing. We would like to thank Boeing’s additive manufacturing team for its collaborative approach,” stated Peter Adams, Burloak’s founder and Chief Innovation Officer. “Together, we developed a well-defined specification that has demonstrated robust, repeatable processes to produce flight components using Additive Manufacturing.”
Colin Osborne, Samuel’s president and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Achieving this qualification further validates Burloak’s position as a global leader in the Additive Manufacturing space, and clearly demonstrates our ability to commercialise this transformational technology. This milestone also signals the increasing importance of Additive Manufacturing within aerospace and represents a step forward on the path to a greener future for aviation.””
