Ag-Tronic Control Systems Inc. donates 3D Printer to EPICentre

EPICentre would like to thank Ag-Tronic Control Systems Inc. for the donation of a 3D printer to our makerspace. A leader in greenhouse automation with strong ties to the Windsor-Essex community, owner Joe Sleiman was thrilled to give back to the community: “We are so happy to provide our future innovators with the ability to bring their creations to light. We hope to continue to see successful new ventures help grow our local economy.”

This generous donation will enable EPICentre to increase our 3D printing capacity to service our members and students at the makerspace, the Windsor Mold Group EPIC Makers’ Base. We are thrilled to add the large capacity Dimension 1200es Series 3D printer to our 3D printer collection, which includes an Ultimaker 3 and a UPrint SE.

As a makerspace, we try to provide a wide-range of technologies and equipment to our members and students, as most people are unable to purchase their own high-tech equipment such as 3D printers. Additive manufacturing is an emerging technology that has gained popularity in the manufacturing sector for its rapid prototyping capability in the past few years. We are excited to be able to provide our members and students the opportunity to learn new technology through our makerspace as well as a fast and cheap way for our startups to develop their prototypes.
