“We are thrilled to welcome Tobias to the NIDEC Machine Tool America team,” shared Dwight Smith, Vice President of Additive Manufacturing and Marketing at NIDEC Machine Tool America. “His knowledge and experience in Additive Manufacturing will be invaluable as we continue to expand our offerings and support our customers in achieving their manufacturing goals.”

Dornai added, “As I learn about the advanced technology implemented in the LAMDA DED systems, I am very impressed at how the monitoring/feedback system maintains a specific and controlled melt pool. The local shield system is also very important, as it allows large scale laser powder DED of reactive materials without an inert gas enclosure. I am excited to join the team at NIDEC Machine Tool America.”
