The Barnes Group Advisors (TBGA), headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, has appointed Wayne King to its ADDvisor® Services team. King was described by TBGA as a recognised leader in metal Additive Manufacturing, with over thirty years of experience ranging from fundamental materials research and applied science to research management. 

King most recently led the Accelerated Certification of Additively Manufactured Metals (ACAMM) project at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, California, USA. This project focused on developing physics-based models relating microstructure, properties, and process to performance of materials and includes predictive models for the Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) process. 

King is said to have authored or co-authored over one hundred peer-reviewed publications and delivered numerous keynote lectures on metal Additive Manufacturing. He holds a BA in Physics and Mathematics from Thiel College, Pennsylvania, USA, and a PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from Northwestern University, Illinois, USA.

“We are thrilled to bring Wayne’s high-caliber talent onto our team,” stated John Barnes, Managing Director, TBGA. “His thorough understanding of Additive Manufacturing process fundamentals and the use of predictive models and in-process sensing to accelerate qualification are a tremendous asset as we help our customers industrialise Additive Manufacturing.”
