Oakville-based Burloak Technologies and Kinectrics are teaming up to optimize the design and manufacturability of 3D printed reactor replacement parts.

Burloak and Kinectrics have collectively agreed to advance the design and manufacturability of a range of components and replacement parts used in the nuclear power generating process.

Under the agreement, the two companies will also jointly qualify all components developed under the partnership and work together to speed up adoption of additive manufacturing within the nuclear power industry.

“The nuclear power generation industry has exacting performance and reliability requirements because reactors simply cannot fail,” said Martin Baxendale, Burloak’s VP of operations. “We look forward to working with Kinectrics to leverage our collective knowledge to offer performance and cost benefits to nuclear operators.”

Burloak Technologies successfully designs commercial parts with Additive Manufacturing in mind and manufacture them at scale.

Kinectrics is a life cycle management services company for the power generation industry.
