WELCOME TO THE MMRI
The $19-million McMaster Manufacturing Research Institute (MMRI) opened for business in May 2001. The MMRI is one of the largest university manufacturing research institutes in Canada, supporting academic programs that equal and surpass those found anywhere.
Industry experts consider the MMRI to be Canada's most advanced and best-equipped manufacturing research laboratory.
Founded by Dr. Mo Elbestawi, now McMaster's vice-president of Research and International Affairs, and directed by Dr. Stephen Veldhuis, the 15,000-sq.-ft. facility houses 13 industrial machines and a robot, and is designed to meet the sophisticated research and development needs of leading manufacturers in the polymer, automotive and aerospace industries, as well as the tool, die and mold industry.
VMPT 2013: 2nd International Conference on Virtual Machining Process Technology
The MMRI, in conjunction with NSERC CANRIMT, will host VMPT 2013 conference at McMaster University on May 13-17, 2013.
The topic, Virtual Machining Process Technology (VMPT), is highly relevant to the Canadian manufacturing industry remaining competitive on the global market. Modelling product development and manufacturing in a virtual environment is key. A science-based approach supports design and optimization of the complete manufacturing cycle, without costly and time-consuming trials on the shop floor.
