CRP Meccanica, a provider of high precision machine processing, and Zare Prototyping, a market leader in metal additive layer manufacturing (ALM) technology, have signed an ‘alliance of excellence’ which will see the two companies ultimately provide a comprehensive DLMS/ SLM service.
DLMS/SLM technology allows the melting of layers of metal powder using laser, and the production of pre-series, prototypes and finished components which are ready for testing, CNC processing, or thermal and superficial treatments (above).
The union between the two companies will create a complete service for end users, capable of supplying the best solutions, both in terms of production capacity, and the materials processed and the technology used.
“Through this alliance with Zare Prototyping we will continue to provide an immediate and concrete response to international customers through the implementation of the DMLS / SLM service, a technology which has seen a strong growth over recent years, and which we have decided to develop, explained Franco Cevolini, CEO and technical director of the CRP Group. “Our objective is to continue to innovate, in both precision machining and in the production of DLMS / SLM components, taking advantage of a machinery park which is at the forefront.”
“The alliance with CRP Meccanica is an important strategic step in being able to compete abroad and to assert, strongly, that Italian technological excellence is also entrepreneurial excellence,” added Sauro Zanichelli, CEO of Zare Prototyping.
“Challenging yourself outside your own borders means adapting very quickly and continuously investing in facilities which allow constant technological advancement. Together, Zare and CRP Meccanica bring experience and innovation to achieve the production of metal sintered parts and components.”
