Additive Manufacturing Technologies Ltd (AMT) headquartered in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK, has appointed Noud Steffens as its new CRO. The appointment has been made as part of the company’s vision to drive sustainable innovation across the entire Additive Manufacturing process chain through digitally connected, fully automated post-processing capabilities for new and existing scaled-up applications of the technology.

Steffens joins AMT from DSM, a provider of high-performance material solutions, where he spent thirteen years. In his new role at AMT, he will support the company’s fast-growing global customer base; lead and further expand the AMT team across all locations in Europe, the USA and APAC regions; and develop new collaborative initiatives with OEMs and partners to develop fully integrated, customised post-processing solutions for specific AM applications. 

Steffans stated, “The past decade has culminated in an obvious push across the Additive Manufacturing industry to make additive processes viable and competitive with traditional manufacturing methods – often referred to as ‘the next industrial revolution.’ I believe that this is entirely possible, but the key to success is true collaboration between all parties.”

“There are many pieces to this puzzle and AMT is leading the way when it comes to solving a key piece of that puzzle — post-processing,” he added. “Post-processing has long been overlooked and even today, it does not get the full attention it needs for industrial-scale applications of AM. The focus remains on printing the part, with little to no regard for what comes next.” 

Steffans continued: “This is why I am so excited to join AMT and work with the exceptional team that Joseph has put together to date – because I share the vision of AMT in providing comprehensive tools for the industry to reach its full potential. Fully automated post-processing capabilities to complete the full process chain are a key step to achieve success with AM. My mission at AMT is to help companies understand this and convey the importance of engaging with AMT for post-processing at a very early stage in the development process. 2020 is going to be a very exciting year – both for AMT and for me personally as I also look forward to helping grow the team further.”  

Joseph Crabtree, AMT’s CEO, commented, “I am delighted to welcome Noud to the AMT team. And I am convinced that his background and experience with advanced materials and Additive Manufacturing processes will prove invaluable as we continue to grow as a company and truly push the boundaries of what is possible with AM on an industrial scale with our joined-up approach to the entire process chain.”
