America Makes, Youngstown, Ohio, USA, has appointed Dr Brandon Ribic as its new Technology Director. He succeeds John Wilczynski, who was recently named America Makes’ Executive Director.

Previously, Dr Ribic represented Rolls-Royce on the America Makes Governance Board and was co-chair of the America Makes Roadmap Advisory Group (RMAG). In his position at Rolls-Royce, he has served as a Joining Engineer within the Rolls-Royce Corporation Materials Technology Center, where he led efforts in Additive Manufacturing process modelling and in-situ process monitoring. 

He has reportedly spent more than six years researching and developing welding and AM processes for various titanium and nickel superalloy gas turbine engine components. He has also led and participated in multiple Metals Affordability Initiative projects focused on the AM of nickel superalloys over the last three years, and successfully developed, qualified and productionised the first CMSX-4 AM repair for Rolls-Royce.

Prior to joining Rolls-Royce, Dr Ribic served as Plant Metallurgist and Quality Assurance Manager at McConway & Torley, LLC, and Trinity Industries, Inc. He has several patents pending in the area of laser-based AM and is also a member of the American Welding Society (AWS), Graduate Fellowship, co-chair of the AWS High Energy Beam Welding and Cutting committee, and chair of the AWS Laser Hybrid Welding subcommittee.

“On behalf of all of us at America Makes, we are excited to welcome Brandon to the America Makes team as our next Technology Director,” stated John Wilczynski. “Brandon is no stranger to all of us at America Makes as an active member of the Institute. I personally cannot think of anyone more ideally suited for the Technology Director position than Brandon. With his metallurgical background combined with his AM experience, as well as his ongoing involvement throughout the years with our Governance Board and Roadmap Advisory Group, Brandon is not only well-versed in the mission of America Makes, but also completely dedicated to fulfilling that mission.”
