Webinar: All About Additive Manufacturing presented by UNB and GE Additive

The Marine Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence (MAMCE) at the University of New Brunswick, in collaboration with GE Additive AddWorks™️, will present a webinar on metal additive manufacturing. Join us for a value-added event to discover how additive technology can work for all manufacturing sectors. This webinar is open to all Atlantic Canadian businesses, manufacturers, and students interested in learning how additive manufacturing can improve processes, efficiencies and add value to industry supply chains. Through this comprehensive webinar, you will learn about trends in additive manufacturing, how to bring ideas to production in an additive environment, and the available technologies and tools for additive manufacturing. You will also have the opportunity to ask your questions and hear from some of the leaders in additive manufacturing.

The business of additive manufacturing and how to create value 

  • Overview of additive technology and trends 
  • Best practices to identify additive applications 
  • Considerations to scale to additive production 
  • Case studies in additive manufacturing

Edward Cyr
Director of Programs & Innovation
University of New Brunswick

Dr. Cyr is the Director of Programs & Innovation at MAMCE. The additive manufacturing revolution is interrupting the notion of engineering and design dictating a world of parts and assemblies. Moving from synthesis to growth, additive manufacturing, along with computational advancements in machine learning and the internet of things, is opening new avenues in technology and design, changing the way we interact with our world. As MAMCE's Director of Programs & Innovation, Dr. Cyr is discovering new opportunities and challenges fo the role of additive manufacturing in engineering and design for defence, aerospace, and marine industries.

At UNB, Dr. Cyr's research has focused on microstructure characterization and modelling of 3D printed metals, and cognitive design for additive manufacturing in aerospace, marine, and defence applications. Outside of work, Dr. Cyr is an avid curler and is on the Board of Directors at the Capital Winter Club in Fredericton.

Ryan Betts
Additive Designer
GE Additive

Ryan began his career with GE Additive in 2017 working at GE Additive’s Center for Additive Technology Advancement (CATA) in Pittsburgh, PA. During his time there, Ryan worked to transition several of GE’s businesses’ traditionally manufactured hardware into additively manufactured prototypes, while gaining a deep understanding of the DMLM printing process with a focus on design.

After transitioning to GE Additive’s AddWorks consulting team in 2018, Ryan brought along the skills he developed while serving various GE businesses and worked to apply them to serve external customers. After moving on to the GE Additive Cincinnati site in 2020, Ryan continues to serve GE Additive’s customers by developing and instructing various training modules in addition to helping customers to transition their hardware to additive.
