Roboze, the supplier of one of the world’s most accurate 3D printers for metal replacement with super polymers and composite materials, has announced the entry of Dr. Adrian Keppler, a veteran of the additive manufacturing industry, to its Advisory Board. His support and experience will open the doors to global markets like Germany, the US, and others bringing manufacturers closer to Roboze industrial 3D printing.
Most in the AM industry know Dr. Adrian Keppler, for his over 11 years at EOS, where he covered the roles of Managing Director and CEO, along with close to 15 years of experience in the world of additive manufacturing. Recently Mr. Keppler has been working as advisor for other key startups in the AM space, including bound metal stereolithography pioneer Incus. He has chosen to support Roboze in its further market penetration – with a strong focus on Germany.
According to Germany Trade and Invest (GTAI), the economic development agency of the Federal Republic of Germany, Germany is Europe’s number one market for 3D printing. Over 30% of large German industrial companies already use additive manufacturing solutions and over 20% of additive solutions manufacturing companies are located in Germany.
In recent years, these companies have included Roboze, provider of one of the world’s most industrialized 3D printers for the production of non-metallic parts for regulated industries. Roboze’s goal is to help companies, from Germany and around the world, accelerate the conversion of their digital production capacity and transfer know-how, services, and technology to support more flexible and shorter supply chains.
“Roboze has been on my radar for all these years and has immediately demonstrated its strong innovative character followed by a well-defined vision,” said Dr. Keppler. ” I am sure that the technological ecosystem developed will accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing even faster, helping innovative companies around the globe to tackle the challenges ahead”.
In 2020, in a full pandemic, Roboze opened its new office in Munich to get closer to its German customers and partners. In the last year, Roboze GmbH has opened technical-commercial and marketing positions to create new opportunities for collaboration, both on the technological and strategic fronts, with major German companies and leading research organizations in production worldwide.
“We are proud to have gained the trust of Dr. Adrian Keppler, veteran of the additive manufacturing industry, in our Advisory Board,” stated Alessio Lorusso, Founder and CEO of Roboze. “Germany has a cutting-edge engineering and manufacturing heritage and is already projected towards the next digital transformation solutions. I’m sure Adrian’s experience will allow us to increase our network and get in touch with the companies involved in this particular pioneering phase”.
