Prof. Dr. Jürgen Stampfl
Chief Scientific Officer (CSO)
Prof. Dr. Jürgen Stampfl is the head of the field of research of additive manufacturing at the Institute of Materials Science and Technology at TU Wien. After graduating from Graz University of Technology and his doctoral studies in materials science at the Montanuniversität Leoben, he spent three years as a PostDoc at the Rapid Prototyping Lab at Stanford University. Since 2004 he is professor of materials science at TU Wien. In addition to his academic work, in 2011 he co-founded Lithoz GmbH, which for the first time enabled the additive production of high-performance ceramics with the LCM process. As head of numerous national and international research projects as well as the coordination of several transnational EU projects, Prof. Stampfl has been able to set decisive scientific accents in the field of stereolithography over the years. With the founding of Cubicure GmbH in 2015, a breakthrough in the additive manufacturing technology of plastics has now been achieved.
Dr. Robert Gmeiner
Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
Dr. Robert Gmeiner studied mechanical engineering at TU Wien with a focus on medical engineering. In addition to several internships in the field of medical electronics and as a measurement engineer in german nuclear power plants, he gained several years of design experience in the R & D department of Andritz Pulp and Paper. During his time as a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Stampfl, he first came into contact with additive manufacturing technologies in 2012 - a topic that has not left him since then, in addition to his strong interest in aerospace. His dissertation in the Christian Doppler Laboratory for the additive production of high-strength glass-ceramics for dental restorations allowed him numerous insights and first inventions on the topic of heated stereolithography, as well as the resulting process possibilities. In 2015, together with Prof. Stampfl, he founded Cubicure GmbH where he is Chief Executive Officer since then.
Dr. Markus Pfaffinger
Dr. Markus Pfaffinger studied biomedical engineering at the UAS Technikum Wien and subsequently at TU Wien. He focused on rehabilitation technology, biomechanics and biomaterials. In 2017 he received a PhD for his work in the Christian Doppler Laboratory for photopolymers in digital and restorative dentistry in the working group of Prof. Stampfl at TU Wien. The main research was the material development of light-curing ceramic slurries for the lithography-based additive manufacturing of ceramic dental implants and teeth restorations.
At Cubicure he is responsible for business development since 2017.
