Joost Anne Veerman

Joost Anne Veerman
Founder & CTO

Joost Anne Veerman has a PhD in Physics and is an expert in inkjet process development and printers for industrial applications.

“I believe that multi-material jetting can do miracles for many applications! I think that our ability of converting application demands into a customised process really makes us unique. I know that designing a reliable material jetting printer is quite challenging already, but it’s even more difficult to actually design the right one. I’m very proud of our wonderful team and my ambition is to build the best material jetting technology company in the world.”

Klaas Wiertzema

Klaas Wiertzema
Founder & CEO

Klaas Wiertzema is a psychologist with a strong entrepreneurial background in software development and complex sales processes.

“I was soon convinced of the potential of material jetting in the 3D world. That is why together with Petra and Joost Anne I decided to embark on this inspiring adventure . It’s great to see my beliefs come true.
My ambition is to continue building a team based on trust rather than control mechanisms, as I am convinced that this will stimulate people’s creativity. I am focused on solid long-term relationships, both with my colleagues and with external parties, because I believe this is the best foundation for the future.”

Ineke Wijnheijmer

Ineke Wijnheijmer
Senior 3D print process developer

Ineke Wijnheijmer has a PhD in Physics and is an expert in inkjet print process development.

“For many years, I have known the benefits of 2D inkjet printing. Since I have joined Lake3D a whole new world opens up by adding a third dimension. It adds a lot of possibilities, but also a lot of complexity. Actually, I like both. I am excited to further develop the 3D inkjet printing technology together with the rest of the team, enabling applications that will benefit society.”
