Welcome to the Centre for Advanced Materials Joining

The primary goal of the Centre for Advanced Materials Joining (CAMJ) at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada is to develop new and innovative technologies for materials joining.

CAMJ has cutting-edge laboratory facilities and research areas to collaborate with leading companies in the industry for research and development. CAMJ trains students on the undergraduate, Masters, PhD, and Post Doctoral levels and collaborates with students from foreign institutes of excellence to extend their research.

The projects taken up in CAMJ are from the following areas:

  • Microwelding -  laser and resistance microwelding for medical applications
  • Microjoiningsoldering and wire bonding for electronics
  • Nanojoiningpractical interconnection and construction technologies of nano-mechatronics and molecular devices
  • Laser, arc, resistance and friction stir welding - automotive applications


Some new research by the CAMJ of University of Waterloo in conjunction with Liburdi should assist some automotive applications, but also stainless steel pipe welding and wire arc additive manufacturing processes.

“The work we have done with Liburdi is geared to developing a more consistent and more capable form of arc welding control,” said Prof. Adrian Gerlich.
