Additive manufacturing (AM) company Velo3D has appointed Dr Robin Stamp as its new director of solutions engineering.

In this role, Dr Stamp will oversee the development of new standards with regulatory agencies and the qualification of new metal alloys for use in the Sapphire family of printers, and collaborate with partners and agencies, the company said.

Dr Stamp was previously a principal engineer at SpaceX, where he worked on developing technology for space applications, and worked for more than 10 years with Stryker, a medical technology company, leading a team responsible for creating new AM processes for medical implants.

“In our industry, there aren’t many people with more experience using metal additive manufacturing technology in production environments than Robin,” said Dr Greg Brown, Velo3D vice president of technology. “His creativity solving problems through additive manufacturing will be very beneficial to our solutions engineering team.”
