The Manufacturing Technology Deployment Group (MTDG) has appointed Stephan Biller as the CEO of its new subsidiary, Advanced Manufacturing International (AMI).

Dr Biller reportedly has 20 years of experience in analytics, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), additive manufacturing and digital manufacturing, for which he has recently been elected to the National Academy of Engineering. He also served on the executive committee of America Makes.

‘It is a tremendous opportunity to contribute to not only building AMI into an industry leader in the digital manufacturing sector, but also continuing to innovate for the advance manufacturing industrial base at large,’ said Dr Biller. ‘There are significant benefits to integrating digital manufacturing technologies and processes into manufacturing operations. I look forward to helping our customers, particularly small to medium-sized manufacturers, harness the vast potential of digital manufacturing to transform their companies.’

AMI is a sister, not-for-profit company of the National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NCDMM), the company said.
