We recently caught up with Jonathan to discuss current industry challenges and future directions for APWORKS’ partnership with Additive Industries.
I have been fortunate to have spent the majority of my career focused on metal additive manufacturing. I first got involved with the technology in 2005, working for a small contract manufacturer providing healthcare solutions that leveraged the advantages of additive manufacturing. It was an exciting time; there was no roadmap for establishing a legitimate AM manufacturing process and it took some time to find the appropriate applications for the technology.
