Sergio Rios Contesse
Sergio has specialized in process monitoring, by welding video and arc signal analysis. He has developed precision hardware for the study of wire feeding into plasma WAAM, semi-automatic profiling of the part dimensions and other devices to study the performance of plasma torches. He is currently finishing his PhD in Additive Manufacture within the WAAMMat program, which began just after completing the MSc in Welding Engineering at Cranfield University. His industrial experience is in motorcycle fabrication, but has been close to science all his life. He obtained a degree in Mechanical Engineering, at Universidad de La Serena, in Chile, with a degree work developed for CTIO-NOAO, the astronomy branch in Chile of National Science Foundation.
