Digital Alloys, the creators of the Joule Printing method of fast metals 3D printing, has announced it’s added Carl Calabria as its CTO.

A veteran of the additive manufacturing industry, Calabria joins from a successful stints at Formlabs, where he was head of engineering; as well as Markforged, iRobot, Sonos and Avid.

Digital Alloys believes the move will speed the release of its Joule Printing metal additive manufacturing technology, a radically simple new process that can rapidly print production-quality parts at a fraction of the cost of other systems.

“Attracting Carl to Digital Alloys was a coup for us”, said Digital Alloys CEO Duncan McCallum. “He brings extensive experience commercialising additive manufacturing and other cutting-edge technologies, and has a track record of building and leading strong organisations.”

Calabria will have overall responsibility for both research and engineering at Digital Alloys. Elad Taig, VP Engineering, will continue to lead the engineering organisation.

“Leaving Formlabs was a difficult decision”, said Calabria, “but I was drawn to the size of Digital Alloys’ market, the team, and the opportunity to use Joule Printing to deliver metal printing solutions that have the speed, cost and quality needed for volume manufacturing of larger parts.”
