Stewart Lane, corporate manager at additive manufacturing (AM) company Renishaw, has been selected as chairman of CECIMO's new AM committee. The committee will discuss EU policy challenges and drive AM forward in Europe.

CECIMO is the European Association representing the common interests of the machine tool industries globally and at an EU level. Lane was first appointed to the board in 2015. Renishaw says that it has shared its AM knowledge as part of CECIMO's AM working group and at multiple industry events. The aim is for the new committee to draw on expertise from 350 AM organisations across 15 countries and act as the voice of additive manufacturing technologies, focussing on the industrialisation of AM. 

‘To achieve productivity and competitiveness, we must industrialise additive manufacturing,’ said Lane. ‘We are currently on the verge of this, as the technology moves from prototyping to serial production. However, we must first address the challenges in the AM industry and use these to shape industrial policy.’
