MI-zone’s goals include supporting our region’s manufacturers in the following ways:
· Access to our equipment (link to equipment) – Mill turn machine - 5-axis simultaneous machining, very high tolerance and repeatability and 5-axis simultaneous machining with a fully integrated pallet loading robot– all high tolerance and repeatability. There are two ways to access this capacity:
o Our technicians can assist with design, programming, prototyping and small run manufacturing
o Or we can work with you to train you or your staff to operate the equipment through our community use program
· We also offer or link to training on design, manufacturing techniques and business development.
· Support for design the product or parts so they consider manufacturability – material, labour and quality considerations
· Our business support includes assistance with funding, market assessments, market strategy and more.
To get started call or email us to set up a free and confidential initial meeting and we can outline the support available.
