Mechatronic Development and Prototyping Facility

With funding from Boeing, the Research & Development Corporation, and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, Memorial University is establishing a new Mechatronic Development and Prototyping Facility in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science (FEAS). In addition to supporting a number of long-term industry-academic collaborative research projects, the facility will greatly augment the capability of the FEAS’ Industrial Outreach Group in providing services to outside businesses and organizations.

The equipment includes:

The Fortus 400mc, for example, is a flexible 3D production system for manufacturing functional parts with production-grade thermoplastics that can be selected according to user requirements. Ideal for creating prototypes, manufacturing tools, and small batches of end-use parts, the machine is the only one of its kind in Atlantic Canada.

Information on management of the facility can be found here.

The facility is located in EN-1010 of the S. J. Carew Building. To arrange a tour, please contact Dr. Nick Krouglicof (+1 709 864 3745 or nickk at mun dot ca).
