Ottawa-based Equispheres Inc. recently appointed Dr. Adrian Keppler to its Board of Directors.

“Adrian is both a great ambassador for the metal additive manufacturing industry and a great resource for us. He knows this business from every angle and has such confidence in the future of metal 3D printing,” says Equispheres’ CEO Kevin Nicholds.

Keppler has deep connections to the industry. He was Managing Director and CEO of EOS for many years and is now an advisor and board member for several companies within the metal AM supply chain.

“I believe in metal 3D printing,” Keppler comments. “It will add significant value to the overall manufacturing community. To achieve widespread acceptance, we must work on the economics; the cost per part must be reduced. Engineered materials are a critical enabler in that equation.”
 

Keppler says his focus is to make people aware of how Equispheres’ materials enable more efficient, consistent and repeatable AM manufacturing and increase productivity. “Equispheres is not just a powder manufacturer; it is a technology company engineering high-strength materials and optimizing them to be used efficiently in 3D printing. This is what users of additive manufacturing need, today and in the future.”

Since leaving EOS, Keppler has focused on scaling metal AM for industrial production. He founded AM Scalation, a consulting team of AM experts focused on helping OEMs, contract manufacturers, and end users increase the production of 3D printed parts.

As a member of the board, Keppler will lend his expertise to Equispheres as they add powder production capacity to support production programs and new developments.

Dr. Keppler is also a Senior Advisor for Digital Manufacturing at H&Z, a management consulting firm in Europe. He holds a PhD in Geotechnical Engineering from Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich and a degree in Business Administration from the University of Zurich.

During this period of rapid growth for metal AM, Keppler believes the sector needs to build credibility. “As an industry, we have to gain the trust of the broader manufacturing sector. Trust is about technical expertise and measurable results. This is how Equispheres is differentiating itself already in the market.”
