Tim Weber is Global Head of 3D Materials and Advanced Applications. His organization is responsible for development and commercialization of additive manufacturing (3-D Printed) materials, processes, and applications.
The materials development includes work in polymers, ceramics and metals. Applications include using multi-jet fusion to enable the manufacture of products that are impossible to make with conventional means.
Prior to HP, Tim worked for Boeing at their helicopter manufacturing facility in Philadelphia. He joined HP in 1993, starting as a product engineer on one of HP’s first thermal ink jet printers. Shortly thereafter he went into technical management and helped lead the development of numerous ink jet products, including the scalable print technology and early page wide array concepts that ultimately became HP’s current page wide technology.
Over the next several years Tim led several R&D projects, becoming a R&D director in 2001. He has led advanced printhead and printbar development, commercialization and manufacturing. Additionally he was responsible for incubating new businesses that enable printing services and digital publishing for desktop, SMB, retail and commercial markets.
Tim’s other R&D efforts have included printing technology platforms, MEMS-based technologies (such as HP’s state-of-the-art accelerometer), applied molecular systems (nanotechnology), solar applications, and printed electronics. His organization was responsible for the development and ongoing production of the MEMS-based advanced printhead technology recently introduced across HP’s inkjet product lineup. Tim holds 52 U.S.-issued patents.
A native and current resident of Corvallis, Tim is a member of the Oregon Nano and Micro Institute Board, the Corvallis Economic Advisory Board and the Oregon State University College of Engineering Dean’s Leadership Council. He holds a PhD in engineering from Oregon State University.
