About us

ValCUN is a young dynamic tech start-up developing a new & disruptive metal 3D printing technology. Our mindset and hunger for technology & innovation allowed us to take the risk to re-think current state-of-the-art technology. By tackling their major shortcomings, ValCUN allows 3D printing in mass production and outside capital-intensive industries.

ValCUN aims for fast and affordable metal 3D printing, enabling mass production.

Jonas Galle

Jonas is passionate about mechatronics and technology in general. Professionally, he holds a PhD in electro-mechanical engineering and has work experience as a system engineer, tackling the technical overview of a project. His spare time is fully dedicated to gain experience in all the stages of product development ranging from electronics, multi-physics simulations, mechanical design, programming, data-acquisition & processing, experimenting to manufacturing. Now both his professional & spare time merged into ValCUN.

Jan de pauw

Jan is an electro-mechanical engineer in heart and soul. Combining pratical skills and theoretical knowledge is his main asset, a talent that he uses every day at ValCUN. Jan holds a PhD in electro-mechanical engineering but enjoys nothing more than making things with his own hands from turning/milling over assembling till testing. As R&D engineer he is responsible for the  development of the ValCUN technology. 

No obstacle is so big that one person with determination can't make a difference.”
