Link3D, Boulder, Colorado, USA, has announced the addition of Daniel Langraf to its European leadership team. He assumes the role of Regional Director of EMEA, based in Munich, Germany, which is dedicated to driving Additive Manufacturing growth in Europe.

Langraf has an extensive background in digital transformation for AM with previous roles at 3YourMind, Materialise, and Autodesk. Link3D states that it will be focusing its efforts on helping organisations and clients in the EU to maximise their return on Additive Manufacturing investments through digitisation of their supply chains. The company also expanded to Japan and APAC regions in 2020.

Landgraf commented, “Over the last decade, I’ve seen organisations adopt digital strategies to improve their production lifecycle moving from CAD to digitising their AM workflows. As more companies look to Additive Manufacturing to improve product performance and disrupt their supply chain, the ability to enable end-to-end traceability and manufacturing repeatability is critical – Link3D is best equipped with the right digital infrastructure and experienced team to deliver on the promises of Industry 4.0.”

“I am very pleased and proud with the trust Shane Fox, Vishal Singh, and their team have placed in me to set up the European branch and, thus, continue Link3D’s path as a globally-operating company,” he added.

According to Link3D, Europe currently has the second largest AM market share in the world, after North America. By expanding to this region, the company will now have direct access to some of the largest key industry leaders.

Mark Seaton, EVP of Sales and Marketing at Link3D, stated, “Link3D is setting the stage to establish a sales and customer service presence from Munich, following our recent agreements with PostNord, EOS GmbH and Fraunhofer. This is a key strategic move for Link3D to grow its customer network as we continue to expand and support the global market.”
