Stratasys Appoints Yoav Zeif CEO
Yoav Zeif has worked in several international executive positions before joining the additive manufacturing company.
Stratasys Ltd. has appointed Yoav Zeif as the company’s new CEO, effective February 18, 2020. Current Interim CEO Elchanan (Elan) Jaglom will continue in his role as chairman.
Mr. Zeif has worked as president of the Americas division at Netafim, the world’s largest micro-irrigation company. Prior to that, he worked as a senior vice president for Makhteshim, now Adama Ltd., a global crop protection company. Since 2018, Mr. Zeif has been a partner in the New York office of McKinsey & Company.
“Stratasys has led the expansion of the 3D printing industry for more than three decades, but the potential impact of this transformative technology across all industries is just beginning,” says Mr. Jaglom. “Yoav brings the strong combination of leadership and global operational experience to fuel our next stage of growth. We are confident that as CEO he will advance our offering and further our vision to reshape the world of design, prototyping and manufacturing.”
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.
A video from Pratt & Whitney illustrates the steps needed to additively manufacture an aerospace component.
Machining a large 3D-printed part for aerospace composite tooling is fundamentally different than manufacturing the part traditionally. Baker Industries knows this first-hand.
