Holo, a metal Additive Manufacturing company headquartered in Newark, California, USA, has announced the addition of David Benhaim to its board of directors. Benhaim is an experienced leader in the AM industry, having co-founded AM machine maker Markforged in 2013.

“We’re very excited to have David join our board as we enter this growth phase for Holo,” stated Hal Zarem, CEO of Holo. “He is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in this industry and he’s been through this before.”

Benhaim has a background in software, graduating from MIT with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering, and from which he co-founded his first company. He advises early-stage deep technology companies leveraging cloud-based software, artificial intelligence, and connected hardware in industries such as life sciences and accessible robotics.

“Holo has built a technology platform that enables 3D printing of fine-featured metal parts with the precision and surface finish to make them production-worthy as printed. When I saw that, I realised that this company can take digital manufacturing of metal parts to the next level,” added Benhaim.

Holo, which additively manufactures highly precise metal parts in prototype to production volumes for customers’ requirements, is scaling capabilities and hopes to set new expectations for Additive Manufacturing. In order to take its place in an increasingly busy marketplace, the company is prioritising a strategy as a focused vertical supplier built on its PureForm.

Holo’s PureForm technology produces parts with features smaller than 50 microns, holding tight tolerances across a wide variety of sizes. With this precision and MIM-like surface finish, Holo’s parts reputedly do not often need post-processing, further reducing cost to the end customer. As demand continues to rise for complex metal parts, Holo is poised for growth, which is said to be evidenced in the expansion of its board of directors.

“It speaks highly of the technology and business that we have built that David has chosen to join Holo. We’re looking forward to adding his experienced perspective and industry knowledge as we enter our next stage,” Zarem concluded.
