A manufacturing test bed – the micro-factory

Procurement for equipment for the micro-factory in the manufacturing lab is continuing as construction nears completion. To start, we will be installing a 5 axis CNC machine and in the coming weeks, we will announce the details about the selected CNC machine. Companies, universities and colleges will have access to this equipment and will be able to collaborate with NRC on research projects, trial equipment and the development of advanced manufacturing processes.

Below is an artist’s rending of the micro-factory.
