Romar Welcomes Benjamin Bax, Additive Manufacturing Authority

Romar Engineering is a leader in additive manufacturing, with niche technology that includes our Australian-only DMG Mori Lasertec 65 3D printer.

We already have an exceptional team of additive and materials engineers, and we’re delighted to announce that our newest team member has joined us, directly from DMG Mori in Germany.

Benjamin Bax is a leading authority on the Lasertec 65, and he will work with Steve Milanoski, Romar’s Head of Advanced Manufacturing, to develop additive manufacturing solutions for the aerospace, medical and tooling sectors.

Introducing Benjamin Bax

Benjamin Bax is a materials scientist with a background in advanced manufacturing. He has just spent six years working with DMG Mori, a global leader in cutting machines, CNC lathes and milling, and additive manufacturing technology.

“I have a PhD in materials science from the University of Saarland, and after university I worked for DMG, developing process parameters for additive manufacturing. I primarily used the Lasertec 65, which is the machine we have at Romar.”

At DMG, Benjamin gained experience in diverse 3D printing applications across multiple industries.

“DMG Mori produced the Lasertec which can be used for diverse applications, so I had to find suitable materials for all kinds of industries, from aerospace to tooling. For each material we use, you need different process parameters or variables to determine how best to produce a quality outcome.”

At Romar Engineering, we utilise robust processes at every stage of a manufacturing project. Benjamin’s expertise will help us deliver innovative and bespoke additive manufacturing solutions, optimised for client objective, efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

A global reputation

Romar expanded our additive technology this year with the acquisition of the Concept Laser M2 Series 5, a Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM) machine from GE Additive, that offers superior part quality, machine usability and repeatability at scale.

This adds to our Lasertec 65 3D 5-axis synchronous laser deposition, welding and milling machine. It is a singular 3D printer with unique additive and subtractive capability.

Thanks to our $5.8 million Federal Government MMI grant to grow Australian designed fluid and motion control solutions, Romar is expanding our expert team – and our global reputation.

“I knew of Romar through the Lasertec and Steve Milanoski invited me to chat about the role. I love working on the Lasertec, and I knew Romar was expanding rapidly into advanced manufacturing, so I was very happy to come on board.”

Growing our additive manufacturing

Now with Romar, Benjamin will be helping to develop aerospace components, among other projects.

“Romar has a great group of friendly and dedicated people, and we have a fantastic advanced manufacturing team. I’m looking forward to working in aerospace manufacturing and growing with the company.”
