Presented by:

  • Matt Tusz, Magnitude founder and CEO
  • With his background in materials science and aerospace engineering, Matt has spent his career characterizing aerospace materials and bringing manufacturing processes to production readiness. He has supported aerospace and Formula 1 companies in process development and qualification in metal AM. Since 2013, he has supported OEMs and their suppliers in AM by bringing critical applications into production and fast-tracking their learning curve.
  • Charles de Forges, Co-founder and CEO at Spartacus 3D
  • Charles has 20 years of experience in several industries; he has been the managing director of a family-owned company in the glass packaging industry before founding Spartacus3D in 2014. Spartacus3D is focused on metal additive manufacturing and one of the main French players, operating in several industrial fields. Founding and developing Spartacus3D has been quite a journey and finding profitable businesses is still a challenge. Spartacus3D has developed key skills on some applications such as heat exchangers, hydraulic manifolds and turbine wheels, typical parts for which additive manufacturing can bring significant performance improvement.
