Distinguished Innovator Operators Award (DINO)
The DINO Award is AMUG’s most prestigious honor. It is bestowed upon those with the highest levels of additive manufacturing expertise and a willingness to share that knowledge through contributions to AMUG, its members and the industry it represents.
Welcome new DINOs
The Additive Manufacturing Users Group welcomed ten new DINOs in 2020. Due to the postponement of the conference, the awards were presented virtually. The broadcast is available on demand.
The new DINOs’ efforts behind the scenes and from the public stage have advanced the technology and the applications that leverage its capabilities. Through direct contributions of time and energy, all have had a hand in making the AMUG Conference a positive experience for those seeking insights and information.
Gary Rabinovitz, AMUG chairperson and DINO Selection Committee chair, said, “This award recognizes not only experience but also character and passion. Following a lengthy nomination and review process, the committee selected 10 deserving individuals from dozens of qualified candidates.”
Over its 32-year history, AMUG has awarded DINOs to only 168 individuals. Although there are many deserving of the recognition as a DINO, AMUG limits this prestigious award to no more than ten individuals each year.
