Speaker Biography (Anton Kaasjager)

Anton Kaasjager studied experimental physics at the University of Utrecht. In 1985 he joined the textile department of the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific research TNO. He participated in textile related projects which varied from ink jet printing for textiles to the water and vapor transport through textile fabrics. The last three years were focused on smart fabrics and especially the integration of electrical systems in garments.

Company Profile (Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (BMC))

Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (BMC) logo
The department of Equipment for Additive Manufacturing (EfAM) develops cutting-edge technology and high-precision machine concepts for 3D printing and layer-wise material deposition.
Among others, EfAM has developed a 3D chocolate printer, a 3D pasta printer, a high-viscous continuous inkjet system, a force feedback system for a 3D Digital Light Processing printer, a fast large area atomic layer deposition machine and biocompatible materials and ceramic slurries for stereolithography. EfAM has a track record of successful technology transfers to its business partners. For example, its experience with stereolithography was used to found two companies; Rapidshape and NextDent.
