Replique, the provider of a secure 3D printing platform that makes part management more efficient and sustainable for OEMs, has appointed Nick Dinges as the company’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO).
As the new CTO, Nick Dinges will be responsible for developing Replique’s technology platform which enables OEMs to provide parts, on-demand, to their customers through a fully encrypted, global, and decentralized 3D printing network. In addition to the strategic development, he will focus on driving further expansion of the network of service bureaus and ensuring seamless integration with customers’ existing manufacturing workflows.
Nick Dinges joins Replique from Hitchhiker, an independent company providing flight rate management software solutions, where he also held the role of CTO. At Hitchhiker he coordinated the development of a platform designed to manage bookings with hundreds of data sources, active in more than 25 countries.
“Nick is a great addition to the management team, and we’re delighted to have him on board,” commented Dr. Max Siebert, CEO, and Co-Founder of Replique. “With more than 25 years of technical, strategic, and product management experience in the creation of highly scalable commercial software, we’re confident Nick is the right person to further drive our offering to OEMs.”
“Replique’s model enables the fundamental promise of 3D printing – parts when you need them, where you need them, in the exact quantity you need them. Decentralized production using 3D printing has great cost, design, and logistical benefits to OEMs, and as supply chain disruptions continue, Replique’s proposition becomes increasingly beneficial. I’m excited to be joining the company at such a pivotal time,” said Nick Dinges.
Replique is set to launch RSure, a quality tracking module that enables OEMs to track each of their 3D printed parts, directly, and ensure that the final parts meet necessary quality requirements, at Formnext 2022, in Germany.
