“In order to ensure certified serial Additive Manufacturing it is crucial to be able to scale qualified and robust AM production processes. The AM Global LAB- & HUB-structure enables our customers to develop, qualify and scale their AM production on a local or global basis tailored to their specific needs”

Nel is responsible for Operational Excellence and has been with AM Global from the beginning. Prior to AM Global he worked as an application engineer at various companies, latest AM Ventures, where he managed the Operational Excellence Program (machines, people and processes) at 3TRPD based in Newbury, UK. He has 7 years of experience in AM.

The set up of the EOS innovation center in Düsseldorf was mainly driven and shaped by Nel. There he consulted various customers in different projects (e.g. layout planning of AM facilities, Design for AM, AM process development and application development along the entire process chain) to enable them implementing and fully utilize Additive Manufacturing.

Nel holds a master degree in mechanical engineering from university of Duisburg-Essen.
