Apollo is proud to announce our involvement in the innovative Canada-Germany 3+2 program. This initiative is dedicated to bolstering international collaboration between our two great nations and integrating artificial intelligence and machine learning into Apollo’s laser-based industrial metal additive manufacturing capabilities. Apollo will play a pivotal role in the project as the final demonstrator of the technology building from our 14 years-experience in laser-based manufacturing. Special thanks to the Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP) for their support and to our project partners who we are excited to work with for the next three years. We look forward to an exciting, more intelligent future.
