Medical device manufacturer PrinterPrezz Inc., located in Fremont, California, USA, has announced that Additive Manufacturing pioneer Greg Morris, formally of Morris Technologies and GE Aviation, is to join its advisory board.
Having founded Morris Technologies in Cincinnati in 1995, Morris is widely recognised for his contribution to the growth of Additive Manufacturing, both on a national and global scale. The company was acquired by GE in 2012, with GE going on to become a leader in metal Additive Manufacturing for aerospace and automotive applications.
“Medical is the next frontier for Additive Manufacturing,” stated Morris. “Like the aerospace and automotive industries before, the medical landscape is the next logical step for additive to make a profound – life changing, in fact – difference for both healthcare providers and patients. PrinterPrezz is at the intersection of manufacturing and medical, and I’m excited to contribute to a company that’s focused on making a difference.”
“We’re thrilled to have Greg join our board of advisors to help PrinterPrezz revolutionise the medical 3D printing industry,” commented Shri Shetty, PrinterPrezz CEO. “We’re at an inflection point, where Additive Manufacturing has the potential to transform modern medicine and surgery, creating new options and improved clinical outcomes for doctors and patients.”
“Greg’s experience in the application of transformative technologies and deep roots in 3D printing, including medical applications, will be invaluable to the continued expansion and growth of PrinterPrezz,” he concluded.
PrinterPrezz provides its customers with access to a variety of metal and polymer Additive Manufacturing machines, software and 3D scanners, as well as other advanced manufacturing processes, and surgeon education programmes. The company operates a suite of Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) metal Additive Manufacturing systems from 3D Systems, GE, and Renishaw.
