Güngör Kara Appointed Chief Digital Officer at EOS
Responsibility for Digitalization and Additive Minds
EOS GmbH Electro Optical Systems, Krailling/Germany appoints Güngör Kara as Chief Digital Officer (CDO). As an expert in industrial 3D printing and innovation, he leads the business area of Digitalization and the EOS consulting arm, Additive Minds – a team of engineers, technical consultants, and experts in digitalization techniques.
Güngör Kara stated: “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 digitalized production cell – for smart applications."
Intelligent, Digitally Produced Components for Smart Applications
Even today, additively produced components are meeting requirements from a wide variety of industries to generate substantial added value. A next step will be to expand the advantages of additively produced components, for example by integrating sensors to create intelligent components. The goal: Completely integrated data generation and sensor systems, which turn additively, produced components into smart applications that are highly tailored to customer-specific requirements.
Once the intelligent component has been defined, a next step will be the integration of additive production into the digital factories of the future. The goal: highly flexible and adaptable digital production that combines industrial 3D printing with conventional production technologies in existing and still-to-be-constructed production environments.
The component data is now available from design to production, to the 'intelligent' part and can be collected throughout the life cycle of the component. In the end, we have a chain of innovation comprised of intelligent components produced in a digitalized 3D printing production chain. In their later area of application, these parts will provide valuable information that can be used to improve both the production chain and the component design. This opens up completely new perspectives for end-to-end linking of the design, production, and utilization of the component, thus also permitting continuous optimization. This can result efficiency gains beyond the boundaries of the company, resulting in changes in entire value chains. In other words, the future of manufacturing is not only linked digitally and additively, but, above all, it is integrated.
