Additive Manufacturing solutions provider Replique, Mannheim, Germany, has named Nikolas ‘Nick’ Dinges as its Chief Technology Officer. In this role, Dinges will be responsible for developing the company’s technology platform and driving expansion of the network of service bureaux in an effort to ensure seamless integration with customers’ existing workflows.
Dinges joins from Hitchhiker, an independent company providing flight rate management software solutions, where he also held the role of CTO. In this role, he coordinated the development of a platform designed to manage bookings with hundreds of data sources, active in over twenty-five countries.
“Nick is a great addition to the management team, and we’re delighted to have him on board,” stated Dr Max Siebert, CEO and co-founder of Replique. “With more than twenty-five years’ technical, strategic and product management experience in the creation of highly scalable commercial software, we’re confident Nick is the right person to further drive our offering to OEMs.”
Dinges added, “Replique’s model enables the fundamental promise of 3D printing: Parts when you need them, where you need them, in the exact quantity you need them. Decentralised production using 3D printing has great cost, design and logistical benefits to OEMs, and as supply chain disruptions continue, Replique’s proposition becomes increasingly beneficial. I’m excited to be joining the company at such a pivotal time.”
