Ante is an Additive Manufacturing Engineer at Exco Engineering, a high-pressure die casting tool builder specialized in making large dies for powertrain and structural components. There he has worked to develop the world’s only large-scale, hot-work tool steel 3D printer. Between the printers, a dedicated in-house heat treatment process, and specialized thermal simulation methodologies, Exco’s additive solutions have 3x longer service life while creating superior quality parts for the likes of FCA, GM, Ford, Honda, Toyota and others.
Ante was born and raised in the Toronto area. He received his BASc from the Engineering Science program in 2010 at the University of Toronto, majoring in Nanoengineering and his PhD in the Materials Science & Engineering Department at the University of Toronto. His thesis centred on using nanomaterials and 3D printing to create next-generation aerospace structures with Prof. Glenn Hibbard and Prof. Craig Steeves.
In addition to 10+ years of plastic and metal additive manufacturing experience, Ante is a member of ISO/TC 261 through the Standards Council of Canada’s delegation. There he works to develop standardization in Canada and abroad on the use and safety of additive manufacturing in all industries.
