An award winning startup with a novel technology for battery thermal management for electric vehicles, Calogy Solutions would like to develop a robotized manufacturing pilot line to build its Thermal Ground Plane (TGP) product. The fabrication process includes a metal joining technique currently not available in Canada and strategic for low-cost, high throughput production of TGPs. This new tool must be automated and integrated with the other processing steps. Specific challenges include process development with this new tool for high yield and throughput, along with the integration of compact robotic manipulators in a vacuum enclosure and advanced analytics for process monitoring.
Dimatec Inc is developing a metal injection molding (MIM) process to manufacture the diamond impregnated products without defects. The MIM process will increases the strength and wear resistance property of the diamond drill bits and tools. It will also help to produce the defect-free parts.

GIT is a leading Canadian materials engineering firm focused on the development of novel marine coatings which improve the performance of all types of vessels. Our products offer a unique approach to the problem of marine biofouling which grows on the bottom of ships and boats. We are now planning the development of a pilot production facility which will be just as innovative as the product itself.
We are looking for partner candidates who are interested in working with us on the development and construction of this production facility.
The SeaWeave antiviral biomask is a product that’s IP is being developed by Clean Valley in collaboration with McMaster University and Dalhousie University. The end product is personal protection equipment that is able to neutralize the spike protein of COVID-19. The antiviral component has been designed by Clean Valley to integrate with a biodegradable fabric.
The mask as a reusable or disposable mask is intended to be thrown into the local Municipal Green Bin.
Metafold is a 3D printing startup that leverages mathematics to print complex geometries such as lattices, microstructures, and metamaterials (engineered materials).
The proposed project is a collaboration to unlock new manufacturing possibilities within 3D printing, such as vascularized tissues in life sciences, ultra-light lattice parts for aerospace applications, or new photosensitive material possibilities in metal and ceramic.
Solaires Entreprises Inc. is creating the next generation of solar cells based on innovative processes and sustainable materials. Solaires has developed a patent-pending Solar InkTM containing Perovskite materials. Perovskite solar cells are flexible, light, and provide a great range of applications with high energy efficiency.
Solaires’ Perovskite solar cell manufacturing process is faster, less expensive, and cleaner compared to conventional silicon solar cell manufacturing.
Solaires is in business for a cleaner world.
Interaptix Inc. has developed a SaaS-based remote inspection, remote assembly, remote audit, and remote training platform that leverages Augmented Reality (AR) to improve accuracy, eliminate travel, and enable expertise to be shared in real-time. The platform leverages both tablets and headsets to reduce the technological barrier to entry for manufacturers.
This project would validate the use of the platform in manufacturing settings, and quantifiably determine the savings obtained by leveraging the platform.
Cloud 3D Print is a cloud-based software and hardware platform that links up 3D printing workspace and lets users manage the project workflow remotely. By using an IoT control panel, called the Cloud 3D Panel, users can connect multiple 3D printers and control and monitor them through the software platform. Features include 3D Printing online slicing, control and monitor, project management, online storage, and 3D printing reporting.
Linamar is currently developing a manufacturing process for producing braided carbon fiber H2 storage tanks. This process is unique both in product design and manufacturing methods.
Linamar does not have previous manufacturing experience in carbon fiber products and would like to develop robust Health, Safety, and Environmental practices.
Many manufactures already collect production data, but rarely exploit it. This project aims to exploit existing manufacturing process data (additional data acquisition also possible). The data provided by the partner will be analysed and utilized in support of machine learning in order to improve the manufacturing process.
This project leverages a tier 1 and 2 metallic structural component manufacturer’s process data and automated welding facility to elevate AutoMetrics’ machine learning-powered system for production-level deployment and to equip the manufacturer with the latest intelligent welding process monitoring technology capable of providing automated feedback and integration with closed-loop control systems.
To demonstrate tracking of employees, equipment, robots and carts exposed to hazardous areas, machinery and robotics in environments where humans and these factors interact on a daily basis. Ideal scenario would be multiple tiers of access to different areas. Using BlackTrax and some customized software we can provide the location (real-time and historical) to stop machinery, send alerts, or signals to managers as well as flag unauthorized access to areas where there are major safety and or security concerns.
