Velo3D, a California-headquartered metal additive manufacturing technology company, is looking to Dr. Robin Stamp, previously a principal engineer at Space X, to help grow adoption of the company’s technology with new customers and industries.
Dr. Stamp has been appointed director of solutions engineering and will oversee the development of new standards with regulatory agencies, qualification of new metal alloys for use in the Sapphire family of printers, and the collaboration with partners and agencies.
Dr. Stamp has extensive experience leading teams in the research and development of additive manufacturing technology. While at SpaceX, he worked on developing technology for space applications. Dr. Stamp also spent more than a decade at Stryker, a medical technology company with more than $17 billion in sales, leading the research and development team responsible for creating new additive manufacturing 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 and his experience operating Velo3D’s technology in real-world environments will help our customers maximize the use of their Sapphire printers.”
Dr. Stamp has a Ph.D. in additive manufacturing for medical devices from University of Liverpool. He also has a Bachelors in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from University of Southampton.
