Velo3D, Campbell, California, USA, has appointed Dr Robin Stamp as Director of Solutions Engineering. In this role, he will oversee the development of new standards with regulatory agencies, qualification of new metal alloys for use in the company’s Sapphire AM machines and collaborations with partners and agencies.

Stamp is reported to have extensive experience leading teams in AM research and development, having spent more than a decade at Stryker, a medical technology company with more than $17 billion in sales, leading the R&D team responsible for creating new AM processes for medical implants. Prior to joining Velo3D, he was a principal engineer at SpaceX, where he worked on developing technology for numerous space applications.

“In our industry, there aren’t many people with more experience using metal Additive Manufacturing technology in production environments than Robin,” stated Dr Greg Brown, Velo3D VP – Technology. “His creativity solving problems through additive manufacturing will be very beneficial to our solutions engineering team and his experience operating Velo3D’s technology in real-world environments will help our customers maximise the use of their Sapphire printers.”

With experience across a variety of industries and in production environments, Stamp is expected to be well equipped to support the development of Velo3D’s technology. He will work with customers in an effort to understand their needs, expand the manufacturing capabilities of Velo3D’s solutions, and educate customers on how to fully leverage various technology improvements.

“Since I first operated a Velo3D Sapphire printer, I realised the technology was a cut above the rest in terms of its print capabilities,” stated Dr Stamp. “I’m looking forward to working more closely with Velo3D’s innovative technology, helping improve and develop products, and enabling new customers.”

Dr Stamp has a PhD in Additive Manufacturing for medical devices from University of Liverpool, UK. He also has a Bachelors in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from University of Southampton.
