Program Manager Precision Manufacturing, Smart and Digital Factory

Contact me to brainstorm on industry technology and innovation roadmaps, as well as how to translate these into concrete R&D projects. Together, we can lift conventional technologies to Industry 4.0 standards. More specifically, I’m happy to share over 20 years of research experience in high-speed milling, precision and micro machining with you to turn technological innovation into a competitive edge for your business.

Work experience 

Back in 2000, I started as a machining engineer. In the years that followed, I extended my knowledge towards automation and digitization, while assisting businesses as a senior consultant. Passionate about machining technology, I later became the driving force behind the programs ‘Precision Manufacturing’ and ‘4.0 made real’. Also, within the ‘Factory of the Future’ program, I’ve been serving as an expert and auditor since 2010, and support the transition of the methodology towards Europe.

Good to know: with the project ‘Integration of 3D metal printing’ to get innovation to the SME shopfloor, we won the REGIOSTARS 2021 Award for best project in the European Union.
