Burloak Technologies, a division of Samuel, Son & Co. established its second additive manufacturing center in Camarillo, California.

With the addition of this facility, Burloak Technologies becomes North America’s first multi-site additive manufacturing services provider, offering full Design for Additive Manufacturing (DFAM) expertise at scale.

The new 25,000-square-foot (2,300-square-meter) facility bolsters the manufacturing capacity available at the company’s 65,000-square-foot (6,000-square-meter) Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence, located in Oakville, Ontario. Between the two facilities, Burloak offers the industry’s most complete set of additive manufacturing capabilities and technologies, including laser powder bed fusion, electron beam powder bed, metal binder jet, and powder and wire DED technologies. In addition, Burloak offers a proven set of engineered plastic solutions for Peek, Ultem, Pctg, carbon fiber, and nylon-based materials using SLS and high-speed extrusion technologies. These are combined with a full range of proven materials and post-production services, including design, engineering, CNC machining, heat treatment, and finishing capabilities.

Formerly operating as CalRAM, the facility, assets, and equipment have been acquired from Carpenter Technology Corporation. In addition to this transaction, Burloak and Carpenter Technology have formed an agreement to collaborate on future product design and development opportunities, and Carpenter Technology will become the preferred powdered metals supplier for certain DFAM projects led by Burloak.

“DFAM expertise, combined with scalable manufacturing capacity, is often the missing link for customers seeking to embrace additive,” said Colin Osborne, Samuel’s President, and CEO. “The establishment of our multi-site capacity, along with our expanded relationship with Carpenter Technology, further demonstrates our commitment to closing this gap. By leveraging the expertise Samuel has in large-scale manufacturing, along with Burloak’s deep additive experience, we offer customers the easiest, most direct path to develop and scale even their most complex additive manufacturing projects.”

In addition to this expanded collaboration agreement with Carpenter Technology, Burloak has recently announced relationships with The Boeing Company, MDA, SmithsHP, and the National Research Council of Canada, and is actively working with additional leaders in space, aerospace, automotive, and industrial markets. Carpenter is a global leader in high-performance specialty alloy-based materials and process solutions for critical applications in the aerospace, transportation, defense, energy, industrial, medical, and consumer electronics markets.
