Our mission, our people and our partners
Decades of experience has taught us that simply purchasing or accessing 3D printing technology is not the ‘silver bullet’ that end users initially hope for. The team at Additive Australia know that the best outcomes are achieved when companies fully leverage the unique benefits that AM has to offer.
Utilise our deep specialist knowledge; whether you are at the beginning of your AM journey or excited to extract the most value from your equipment as an existing end user of the technology.
Kevin Hazlehurst – Director & AM Lead
Possessing over 20 years’ of experience in various technical and managerial roles. Kevin spent his early career in traditional manufacturing environments, while the past decade has seen him become fully immersed in the world of AM and Industrial 3D Printing.
He gained his early AM knowledge as a researcher at University of Wolverhampton (UK) – one of the earliest adopters of metal laser powder bed fusion technology. Kevin’s PhD research investigated the use of AM for developing functionally graded orthopaedic implants. During this time he gained a deep understanding of the systems and the behaviour of additively manufactured components.
Upon completion of his doctoral studies, Kevin followed his passion of applying AM to end use and ‘real world’ applications; holding positions in the UK and Australia utilising his deep technical expertise whilst developing his commercial acumen and leadership skills.
Kevin’s experience has involved working for both suppliers and end users of AM equipment. This ranges from system and process development for precious metal production through to holding an executive position at a world leading AM heat exchanger company.
Kevin is a known authority in the AM space and is often contacted for his expert opinion in a range of settings, from publishing in high ranking journals through to presenting at internationally recognised conferences.
Gary London – Partner & Senior AM Specialist
Possessing over 35 years engineering experience, his principal expertise lies within the sale, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of high value capital equipment.
The past decade has seen Gary work with a globally recognised supplier of Industrial 3D Printing equipment. This has enabled him to position himself as a well-known specialist in the Australian AM world, where he has been based for the past 5 years.
Gary’s unique blend of strong engineering skills, problem-solving capabilities and deep AM knowledge have enabled him to perform specialist troubleshooting and provide knowledge transfer to clients across a range of market verticals, including defence, aerospace, lifestyle, medical and dental.
