EOS, Krailling, Germany, has appointed Güngör Kara as its Chief Digital Officer (CDO). Kara will lead the business area of Digitalisation as well as EOS’s consulting arm, Additive Minds – a team of engineers, technical consultants and experts in digitalisation techniques which provides companies with end-to-end industrial Additive Manufacturing support and consultation.
Dr Adrian Keppler, EOS CEO and Speaker of the Corporate Management, stated, “We are very happy that Mr Kara is now taking on the newly created role of CDO. In recent years, he has successfully built up our consulting unit Additive Minds, which offers services that are unique to the market and provides active support to companies in building knowledge and implementing 3D printing successfully within an organisation. In this way, our technology is already making fundamental changes to companies.”
On his new role, Kara commented, “Digital transformation – with industrial 3D printing as one of the central drivers – will fundamentally change entire value chains for companies in the future. We see ourselves as catalysts and technical consultants for innovative companies. We support them in successfully mastering digital change processes – from digital smart factories for industrial 3D printing all the way to additively manufactured ‘intelligent’ components.”
“Under the keyword ‘3IGITAL’ we are already tapping the next technological dimension for the future: intelligent components – additively produced by a digitalised production cell – for smart applications,” he concluded.
