Ian recently completed his PhD, in which he developed AM technology process modifications to solve a commercial manufacturing problem for an industry partner that manufactures large components for the mineral processing sector. His doctorate focused on using AM laser technology to weld “un-weldable” materials.

His years of research experience encompasses various AM technologies; materials design, characterisation and testing; process monitoring & process control; and mechanical design and construction of fixtures & test rigs. He also has over a decade in automotive, giving him broad knowledge of multiple manufacturing processes like welding, fabrication and machining skills.
We're proud and very fortunate to have Ian at Conflux.
