Sr. Process and Manufacturing Engineer
Stratasys Direct Manufacturing
Andrew Carter serves as a Sr. Process and Manufacturing Engineer supporting the Additive Metals (AM) Department at Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, which collaborates with strategic accounts in vertical markets to evaluate and leverage the unique capabilities of additive manufacturing technologies and develop advanced solutions for end-use applications. In this role he supports the Additive Metals Department by establishing Stratasys Direct Manufacturing’s resources for metallographic evaluation and managing government awards in excess of $1.25 million to pursue research aimed to develop novel applications and materials for additive manufacturing.
His projects include Army SBIR Phase 1 and Phase 2 which researched effective additive manufacturing processes to produce advanced combustion liners with shaped film effusion cooling holes for gas turbine engines; utilizing AFRL funding for the additive manufacturing of Monel K-500 for Hydrocarbon Boost (HCB) Oxygen Rich Staged Combustion (ORSC); a DOE funded development of an AM heat exchanger under contract with ARPAe; a customer-funded development of additive Invar36 for use as mold inserts; and more recently, a customer-IRAD-funded development of new copper ally for use with additive manufacturing.
Andrew holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Boston University and a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
