Recent hires and career moves in the 3D printing industry

As our industry continues to expand, and with optimistic forecasts coming from many additive manufacturing experts, competition for talent is also intensifying. Here we report several recent moves in the 3D printing industry.

3DEO – “Nail it, then scale it”

3DEO has appointed Marty McGough as Chief Operations Officer. McGough brings more than 20 years experience in, “applying Lean Startup and Continuous Improvement techniques to manufacturing, product design, cost reduction, system enhancement, and customer satisfaction problems for high-tech companies.”

LA-based 3DEO has developed a proprietary metal AM system that is used by medical device and aerospace customers to produce 3D printed components on demand. 3DEO printers are not available for sale, however the company has produced tens of thousands of metal parts using their Intelligent Layering technology.

McGough said, “When I first saw the process and what 3DEO was doing, I got excited…I saw a true volume manufacturing process that could easily be quality controlled and have repeatability in the output … a process that could compete in the traditional marketplace.”

The appointment comes as 3DEO plans to add capacity, bringing a further 12 machines online to supplement the current 8 metal AM systems. A key differentiator of 3DEO is the tolerances made possible by Intelligent Layering. This is achieved in part by keeping the 3D printers in-house allowing the company to optimise systems. McGough will be assisting with ISO certifications for 3DEO and introducing further automation to improve standardization, or as he puts it, “Nail it, then scale it”.

The new MCT stated, “I’m thrilled to be taking on the role of CEO at MCT, especially at a critical time when the company is poised for significant long term growth.”

“MCT has developed a unique and broad range of capabilities and deep expertise with over 40 additive manufacturing machines including in-house selection laser sintering (“SLS”), direct metal laser sintering (“DMLS”), polyjet printing (“PJET”), and fused deposition modeling (“FDM”) technologies, in addition to their CNC Machining, injection molding, and industrial design capabilities.  Each of these capabilities allows MCT to collaboratively work with our customers to provide the best solution for their rapid prototyping and production needs all while providing industry leading turnaround times and service. MCT has an incredible value proposition with an extremely talented team and we look forward to sharing our story with customers in the coming months and years.”
