Zach Simkin, president of Senvol, New York, USA, has been elected to serve as Chairman of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME)’s Additive Manufacturing Community. SME’s AM Technical Community Advisors serves as the primary resource for guidance to SME and its members on Additive Manufacturing technologies, including materials, processes, industrial base and workforce. 

The role of an AM Community Advisor is to “provide timely and expert guidance” to SME on AM activities, initiatives and content to best serve the Additive Manufacturing community. The AM Advisors also serve as ‘faces of the industry’ for SME. Community Advisors are reportedly chosen based on a combination of active industry contributions, reputation and personal commitment to expand the use of AM. 

“AM continues to be a major strategic initiative for SME and a vital emerging sector for manufacturing as a whole,” stated, Suzy Marzano, Product Development Manager at SME who oversees SME’s Technical Communities. “We’re thrilled at Zach’s selection as Chairman for the upcoming year, we appreciate his vision and leadership, and we look forward to working with him and the rest of the AM Community Advisors to help further SME’s leadership position in the industry.”

Simkin is currently in the third year of a three-year term as an Advisor, and previously served as Vice Chair before being elected Chairman. Jennifer Fielding, the outgoing Chair of SME’s Additive Manufacturing Community Advisors and Section Chief, Composite Performance and Applications Section at Air Force Research Laboratory, commented, “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Zach for several years. He is extremely committed to helping the AM industry advance and is a true thought leader in the industry. Under his stewardship, SME’s AM Advisory Committee will continue to pave the way for the industry’s advancement.”
