Desktop Metal has appointed Scott Dussault and Stephen Nigro to its board of directors, with Dussault serving as the chairman of the board’s Audit Committee.
Nigro has over 38 years of experience starting new businesses and running large at-scale global businesses, most recently HP Inc.’s 3D Printing department.
“Stephen is a highly respected and proven leader in the additive manufacturing industry,” says Ric Fulop, Desktop Metal’s CEO, co-founder and chairman of the board of directors. “We are excited to have him join us, and we will call on his broad experience launching and scaling HP’s 3D-printing business as we advance Desktop Metal’s additive manufacturing 2.0 solutions for end-use applications across an array of industries.”
“Desktop Metal has a compelling portfolio of additive manufacturing solutions and a talented team,” says Nigro. “I look forward to partnering with my fellow board members and Desktop Metal management as we work to take advantage of this significant opportunity.”
Dussault has more than 20 years of operational and financial leadership experience in both public and private technology companies.
“I have had the pleasure of working with Scott previously as an early stage investor in Dyn and Demandware,” says Fulop. “Scott brings to our board a wealth of experience leading finance and operational functions at a number of high-growth companies, and we are fortunate to have him assume the chair of our Audit Committee.”
“It’s an honor to join Desktop Metal’s board of directors,” says Dussault. “It’s been exciting to watch the additive manufacturing industry unfold as one of the most transformative technology innovations of our time, and I look forward to the opportunity to be a part of the industry’s continued growth and a member of Desktop Metal’s team as it extends its market position.”
You can 3D print the part, but can you finish it? Here is how to overcome the challenge of part deflection in the machining of lightweight, complex AM parts.
Analyzing directed energy deposition and powder-bed fusion provides a thorough understanding of the extra machining necessary for a “near net shape” versus a “net shape” manufacturing process.
The widespread outsourcing of large machine castings led a collaborative team at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to tackle the machine tool supply chain. The first step? 3D print the largest cast component.
