Christie is pleased to congratulate Hyphen employee Joe Holland on winning a 2016 Distinguished INovator Operator (DINO) Award from the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG).
Holland was one of ten industry veterans who received a DINO Award at the 28th annual users group conference in St. Louis, Missouri. Said Holland, "It's an honor to be presented with a DINO and join a distinguished group of past winners dedicated to contributing to the advancement of the industry."
Holland is the Rapid Prototyping Centre Supervisor with Hyphen, a division of Christie, located in Kitchener, Ontario, which specializes in rapid prototyping and environmental testing. Holland has more than ten years of additive manufacturing experience, with hands-on knowledge of the four core additive manufacturing technologies and in-depth understanding of all others.
Mark Barfoot, managing director, Hyphen, and AMUG president said, "Joe's robust experience within the additive manufacturing industry, his commitment to continually improving upon processes and technology, and his dedication to sharing his knowledge with AMUG and the industry all combine to make it a pleasure to have presented him with this award."
The DINO Award recognizes individuals for both their contributions and years of experience with additive manufacturing technology. Board members consider criteria such as contributions to AMUG, contributions to the industry, willingness to share and assist, and years of hands-on work with an additive manufacturing technology.
