Gareth Hatch is a Founding Principal of Technology Metals Research, LLC. He is interested in helping people to understand the challenges associated with the growing demand for rare-earth elements [REEs] and other critical and strategic materials, and how those challenges affect market sectors throughout the entire technology supply chain. Gareth is also a co-founder of Innovation Metals Corp, a provider of downstream processing and marketing services to the strategic-metals industry, with a particular focus on rare earths. He is based in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois, USA.

For several years Gareth was Director of Technology at Dexter Magnetic Technologies, where he focused on the design & application of innovative magnetic materials, devices and systems, in order to solve real engineering problems. He led a stellar team of engineers who helped customers and clients in the aerospace, defense, medical, data storage, oil & gas, renewables and industrial sectors. He holds five US patents on a variety of magnetic devices.

Throughout his career, Gareth has been particularly interested in the strategic challenges faced by the permanent-magnet industry and its supply chain, in the face of growing demand for REEs as well as the increased use of permanent magnets in the areas of renewable-energy production and electric vehicles.

A two-time graduate of the University of Birmingham in the UK, Gareth has a B.Eng. (Hons) in Materials Science & Technology and a Ph.D. in Metallurgy & Materials, focused on rare-earth permanent-magnet materials. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining, a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering & Technology, a Chartered Engineer and a Senior Member of the IEEE. Gareth is a member of the Strategic Materials Advisory Council.

Latest Analysis
2016 engineering grads can expect to earn an average salary of $65,000 right out of the gate. Petroleum engineers' wallets are much fatter, though -- they are expected to earn about $20K more.
3D printing is now adding value to manufacturers at all steps along the business value chain. Come find out how at a talk by John Jaddou at next month's Embedded Systems Conference in Minneapolis.
From IoT and M2M to flexible robotics and consumer HMI, the advances in smart manufacturing are being deployed on the packaging floor.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
