Director of Engineering
Advanced Simulation Technology Inc
Steven Lelinski joined AST in 2004. In 2005 he helped AST enter the world of White Light scanning, initially leading their 3D scanning and reverse engineering efforts. From an initial workload of 7 parts a week, AST’s 3D scanners now handle 30 parts in an average day. After multiple successes incorporating silicone rubber molding into 3D scanning projects, Steven and AST launched their Metrology Materials division in 2014. With the goal of creating a replication rubber optimized for 3D optical scanning, AST brought ScanRubber to market. Along with continued internal use, ScanRubber has become an integral part of the inspection process for two of the big three aviation leaders. Steven has been involved in a multitude of high profile scanning projects, including NASA’s Return to Flight and Ares programs. In addition to ongoing work serving as AST’s Director of Engineering, he continues to manage the Metrology Materials Division, and is part of the team pioneering Digital Workholding and AST’s BlackLight Bonding systems.
