Principal Additive Engineer
Benjamin has a PhD in material science from the University of Sarrland in Germany and is one of the world’s leading authorities on additive manufacturing. An engineer, Benjamin is highly experienced with the DMG Mori Lasertec 65 3D 5-axis synchronous laser deposition, welding and milling machine, having worked directly with DMG Mori in Germany prior to joining Romar.
Before joining Romar, Ben worked with DMG Mori in Germany. He has a wealth of experience in materials science for additive technology utilising the DMG Mori Lasertec 65 3D 5-axis synchronous laser deposition, welding and milling machine.
Ben’s focus is on developing material process parameters for the Lasertec 65 to ensure we optimise our additive manufacturing solutions to meet client objectives and robust quality and compliance requirements for highly regulated industries such as aerospace, medical, mining and defence.
“At DMG Mori, we produced the Lasertec which can be used for diverse applications, so I had to find suitable materials for all kinds of industries, from aerospace to tooling. For each material you use, you need different process parameters or variables to determine how best to produce an effective and quality outcome,” says Ben.
Whilst at DMG Mori, Ben met Steve Milanoski, Romar’s Head of Advanced Manufacturing, who invited him to join our specialist team. With a passion for additive manufacturing and a keen interest in Australia, Ben was a natural fit for the Romar team.
“We had a chat about the role. I love working on the Lasertec, and I knew Romar was expanding rapidly into advanced manufacturing, so I was very happy to come on board.”
Ben works with our world-class team of additive, manufacturing and material engineers with diverse expertise spanning areas including medical device manufacturing, advanced manufacturing, elastomers, precision molding and silicone products.
