Multi-Scale Additive Manufacturing Laboratory (MSAM)
Hosted at the University of Waterloo, Multi-Scale Additive Manufacturing Lab (MSAM) is one of the largest research and development additive manufacturing facilities in the world. MSAM focuses on next-generation additive manufacturing processes. To this end, MSAM explores novel techniques to develop advanced materials, innovative products, modeling and simulation tools, monitoring devices, closed-loop control systems, quality assurance algorithms, and holistic in-situ and ex-situ characterization techniques.
MSAM’s research covers the entire development cycle of an additively-manufactured product, ranging from material characterization, improvement to an existing machine or new process development under eight research themes. MSAM also works closely with its industrial partners in determining the best technology and process parameters to utilize in creating their specific parts using additive manufacturing.
