AUGUST 2017 Additive Manufacturing NEWS 10 Edited by Stephanie Hendrixson / Senior Editor Research Centre (AMRC) has developed a process that allows electrical, optical and structural elements to be encapsulated inside additively manufactured compo- nents. AMRC says that the new process will be useful in components requiring encapsulated electronics, such as medical prosthetics, and those sensitive to contamination from debris, erosion or impact. EOS GmbH Names CEO EOS has appointed Dr. Adrian Keppler to the position of CEO and speaker of corporate management at EOS GmbH. In his new role, Dr. Keppler is responsible for imple- menting the EOS strategy, and, together with Dr. Tobias Abeln (CTO) and Eric Paffrath (CFO), also heads up the operational manage- ment at EOS GmbH. New Branding for Arcam Group Arcam has launched a new brand- ing identity for the Arcam Group, unifying three businesses Arcam EBM, AP&C and DTI, with a common mark that simultaneously designates the operations as being part of GE Additive. "Arcam and the industry have evolved considerably since our original brand more than 20 years ago," says Magnus René, CEO of Arcam. "Bringing together our offerings in industrial additive man- ufacturing systems through Arcam EBM, metal powders through AP&C and contract man- ufacturing through DTI under one common brand structure will make it easier for us to efficiently address the market. With the endorsement from GE Additive we can commu- nicate the power behind our new brand and the solutions we can provide customers." Sodick Names Business Development Manager Sodick has named Evan Syverson its additive business development manager. In this new role, Syverson will be responsible for cultivating new opportunities in Sodick's AM business, as well as ensuring that Sodick customers, partners and employees have access to the resources necessary to succeed. Henkel and HP Partner to Develop Material Solutions Henkel has joined the HP Open Materials and Applications Plat- form and will work with HP in its 3D Materials and Applications lab to develop customized, industry-specific solutions for HP Multi Jet Fusion customers. Hen- kel's geographic footprint and sales channel is expected to facilitate the implementation of additive manu- facturing on a larger scale. / AddUp Expands Metal AM Business to US and Canada AddUp will open its first North American Customer Technology Center in the first quarter of 2018, with the location to be announced later this year. AddUp plans to open centers throughout the United States and Canada to support customers adopting metal AM for series production. The Centers will be equipped with AddUp production machines and staffed with experts in metal AM part design, industrial process strategy, sales and service support. AddUp says that it intends to manufacture and assemble its machines in the U.S. by the first quarter of 2019. Sintavia Unveils Plans for Manufacturing Facility Sintavia plans to build a 55,000-square-foot advanced manufacturing facility in Hollywood, Florida, near its existing facility in Davie. The new plant, which will also serve as the company's head- quarters, will quadruple Sintavia's current capacity, and is expected to be complete by mid-2018. Penn State University to Offer Additive Manufacturing Degree Penn State University (PSU) will offer a residential Master of Sci- ence in Additive Manufacturing (MSAMD) and online Master of Engineering in Additive Manufac- turing (MEngAMD) degrees. Both are 30-hour programs available to graduate students. Students will work in PSU's additive manufacturing laboratory, the Center for Innovative Materials Processing through Direct Digital Deposition (CIMP-3D); the Material Characterization Laboratory; and the Factory for Advanced Manufac- turing Education in Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering. Tim Simpson, Paul Morrow professor of engineering design and manufacturing and co-director of CIMP-3D, will serve as director of the new program.
