Dr Klas Boivie
Klas Boivie started his career in additive manufacturing (AM) in 1997, and presented his Ph.D. thesis on process developments and application of metal AM technology in 2004. From 2007 until present, Klas has been employed by SINTEF in Trondheim, Norway, acting as the principal researcher in AM technologies. Over the years, he has been active in multiple research projects covering various aspects of AM, from new process development to industrial applications and road mapping for industrialization of AM technology. With respect to the ongoing development and emerging industrial needs, research activities have increasingly been directed at integration of AM as an integrated process in the industrial manufacturing system, from the development of practical solutions to more overreaching perspectives, including the development of international standards through ISO/TC261 and ASTM F42 technical committees.
