The Silicon Halton IoT Peer2Peer is focused on helping members collaborate, share, and learn how IoT is changing industry, and how they can benefit in taking their solutions / products to market. Check out our past events.
This month’s discussion topic: Advanced Manufacturing for Pandemic Relief
The COVID-19 health crisis has forced the hand of many organizations and made them pivot away from their focused line of business. To support the wellbeing of our nation some of these organizations are developing health care related technology at a record-breaking pace at a very critical time.
Richard Bolton, the chair of AMS Halton, will update us on the Advanced Manufacturing Supercluster and how NGen Canada has changed direction by funding manufacturing projects for urgent healthcare solutions in Canada including funding ventilator manufacturing, 3-D printing of medical PPE, new sterilization coatings, rapid testing kits and many other projects. He will also discuss how building focused technology clusters will change the direction of the Canadian economy.
ATA Inc. is a shining example and positive proof that technology companies can pivot fast to adapt to this ever-changing economic environment by switch gears to manufacture and meet current needs during our healthcare crisis. We will explore how Anthony Khoraych and ATA are working with Starfish Medical to produce modules for the Winnipeg Ventilator as part of an NGen Canada funded project which will deliver 7500 plus ventilators to help meet urgent Canadian healthcare requirements.Register Now
