Andy Middleton joins XJet
Moving onto new hires, and material jetting specialist XJet has appointed Andy Middleton to its newly created role, Business Director for Central Europe. The role was created in light of the firm’s recent growth and subsequent intentions to ramp up its business infrastructure, particularly through its global sales network.
Having spent the last three decades in executive positions within the 3D printing sector, including his most recent appointment as Executive Vice President at Stratasys where he managed the firm’s European business, Middleton brings a wealth of go-to-market experience to the role.
“The core technologies behind XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting AM are phenomenal, resulting in groundbreaking material and part properties,” said Middleton. “This is what it’s all about for customers, essential for high performance ceramics and metal, so I’m excited about the journey XJet is taking. The technical ceramics market is close to tipping point with AM technology, so it’s imperative that highly certified industries such as MedTech, aerospace and energy – that use so many of these materials – understand the potential of XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting technology.
“A huge amount of compliance is required for these high performing engineering materials, and it’s my opinion XJet is uniquely capable of meeting those criteria with a scalable solution.”
3D People expands smart factory
UK-based 3D printing service 3D People has announced plans to move to a purpose-built 9,000 square foot smart factory in Woolwich, London, in a bid to “compete with the world’s leading manufacturing businesses.”
Alongside its new facility, the firm has also invested in several new technologies, including a HP MJF 5210 3D printer, which will enable it to turn rapidly turn around more durable, accurate, and competitively priced parts. 3D People will also introduce more automated post-processing technology to help it achieve its mission to become a fully operational Industry 4.0 factory.
So far, the company has worked with a number of high-profile names including the likes of Rolls-Royce and Jaguar Land Rover, to deliver production-grade parts.
“The challenges we faced initially taught us that we needed to offer a more human experience and share our know-how to enable easier access to innovation, no matter what a customer’s knowledge of 3D printing is,” said Felix Manley, 3D People Co-founder.
“Our track record and expansion plans demonstrate that this is an approach that is both wanted and needed in the industry and we will continue to develop our knowledge and service in this rapidly evolving sector.”
