Digital Alloys, Inc., Burlington, Massachusetts, USA, has appointed Carl Calabria as its new CTO. He will assume overall responsibility for both research and engineering at the company with Elad Taig, VP Engineering, continuing to lead the engineering organisation.
Calabria is an Additive Maunfacturing veteran, who has joined Digital Alloys from Formlabs, a provider of plastic AM systems where he was Head of Engineering. He previously led engineering at a number of successful companies including Markforged, iRobot, Sonos and Avid. The appointment of Calabria is expected to drive Digital Alloys’ release of its Joule Printing™ metal Additive Manufacturing technology, a new process, which the company states, can rapidly create production-quality parts at a fraction of the cost of other systems.
“Attracting Carl to Digital Alloys was a coup for us,” stated Duncan McCallum, CEO of Digital Alloys. “He brings extensive experience commercialising Additive Manufacturing and other cutting-edge technologies, and has a track record of building and leading strong organisations.”
“Leaving Formlabs was a difficult decision,” commented Calabria. “But I was drawn to the size of Digital Alloys’ market, the team, and the opportunity to use Joule Printing™ to deliver metal printing solutions that have the speed, cost and quality needed for volume manufacturing of larger parts. The remarkable technology is producing titanium and tool steel parts faster, and at lower cost than conventional manufacturing processes.”
