Essentium names Jeffrey Lumetta Global Chief Technology Officer
3D printing materials supplier Essentium has appointed 3D printing industry veteran Jeffrey Lumetta to the role of Global Chief Technology Officer (CTO). As the latest senior appointment to Essentium’s executive leadership team, he will spearhead the company’s technology strategy, development, and operations to continue advancing its position in the additive manufacturing sector.
Lumetta brings more 35 years of experience in driving technology innovation, engineering, and volume manufacturing advancements in the industry, with previous stints as principal of an additive manufacturing-specialist management consultancy and three decades with global manufacturing specialist Jabil.
“Jeffrey has an outstanding track record of helping manufacturers leverage AM technology infrastructure to deliver real business value,” said Blake Teipel, CEO of Essentium. “This high-caliber appointment comes at an important time when our team is doubling down on technology advancement across our AM solutions.
“Jeffrey will help drive our customers’ growing adoption of industrial-scale AM, increasing their resilience, lowering costs of operations, and driving innovation into their businesses.”
Purdue University and Thermwood to establish LSAM research lab
Purdue University’s Composites Manufacturing Simulation Center (CMSC) and machinery manufacturer Thermwood Corporation have partnered to establish a large scale additive manufacturing (LSAM) laboratory. Located at Purdue’s Indiana Manufacturing Institute, the lab will carry out industry-funded research into large scale composite thermoplastic 3D printing.
The new facility will be equipped with an LSAM 105 3D printer and corresponding 5-axis LSAM additive trimmer and support systems. The installation will be capable of printing and trimming complex geometries up to 5’x10’x4’ at print rates of up to 100 lbs per hour. The system has also been modified to allow testing at higher temperatures than the 450 degrees celsius usually limited on LSAM printers, enabling experimentations with material innovations not normally used in 3D printing.
With the establishment of the lab, the partners are aiming to expand the adoption of LSAM for diverse industrial applications, and will engage with industry players to provide services, refine material formulations, and determine ideal processing parameters necessary to produce high-quality large scale printed parts.
Ken Susnjara, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Thermwood, said: “Not only will this effort improve the overall quality of large scale additive printing but it should also increase our knowledge and understanding of the basic process of fusing layers together into a homogeneous structure.”
