December 4, 2020
Cégep de Trois-Rivières will receive $1.35M from the Government of Canada and Government of Québec for the acquisition of a 3D printer for the Centre de métallurgie du Québec (CMQ). The centre will use the printer to create sand moulds that will allow for the increased production of high-performance metal components used in prototyping and short series production. “This new infrastructure will make innovation accessible to an entire industry, including several businesses that would not have been able to take the risk and would not have had the financial means to benefit from these technological advancements,” said CMQ Director General Gheorghe Marin.
