Additive Manufacturing Lead Technical Consultant
Dr Martin McMahon studied at the University of Liverpool where he gained a degree in Materials Science and Engineering, specialising in Metallurgy, and his Ph.D involving the research of laser materials processing of aluminium alloys. His post-doctoral research then involved studies of the properties of laser and electron beam welded precious metals and copper alloys.
Martin's career in industry has spanned more than twenty years dealing with pioneering technologies, and has also included several years with one of the UK's leading metal AM service providers, prior to joining Renishaw in 2015. As one of our more experienced experts in additive manufacturing, his role is key to supporting the main technical aspects of customer projects across the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region and beyond. Martin advises on the design of parts to be manufactured, the selection of suitable alloys, and liaises with production engineers and external partners in the wider supply chain, seeking to further the potential of full-scale production with laser powder bed fusion.
