VM Podcast S3E4: from aerospace to supercars and back with APWORKS

Jonathan Myer, CEO of the Airbus spin out company talks about implementing aerospace technology across multiple segments

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Our guest for this new episode of the VoxelMatters podcast is Jonathan Myer, CEO of APWORKS.

As an engineering company, Munich-based APWORKS has been at the forefront of advanced additive manufacturing for state-of-the-art materials – such as the increasingly popular Scalmalloy, which it brought to market – and applications used in motorsports and aerosapce, since it spun out of Airbus in 2016.

First as Chief Product Officer and now as CEO, Myer has responsibility for product strategy and implementation.

Before joining APWORKS he spent over a decade as Technology Roadmap Owner for Additive Manufacturing at AIRBUS, with responsibility for defining the AM technology strategy at the group level.

Today APWORKS makes proven aerospace technologies accessible in many different industries. Focusing on metal PBF, the company covers the entire value chain, from optimized component and part design to the choice of

suitable materials, from prototyping to qualified serial production.

Armed with the latest design and analysis methods and tools, the APWORKS engineering team meets requirements whether the priority is to optimize performance, functionalize components, or to make them aesthetically stunning, leveraging skills and experience to make a vision into a reality.

Digital design and manufacturing has the potential to dramatically shift that paradigm. With Additive Manufacturing the classic economics of production are turned on their head. With no tooling necessary, the biggest barrier to customization is removed, but it isn’t the only one. The amount of engineering effort required to adapt a product for a specific customer is a huge barrier to customization, or at least it was…

​APWORKS offers a powerful development, verification and validation approach, coupled with efficient automation. Thanks to the Genome toolset APWORKS can help to deliver customized products in markets where it was previously not viable.

In this VoxelMatters podcast episode, we have the opportunity to speak with Jonathan Myer about the very latest progress at APWORKS, including the new Genome toolset, which helps customers rapidly implement AM where it makes the most sense – all the way from horse race shoes to Pinarello olympic racing bikes. More generally we’ll discuss how AM is impacting the aerospace segment today and how it will continue to do so in the years to come.
