Two Italian companies combine additive manufacturing technologies

CNC machining provider CRP Meccanica (Modena, Italy) and additive manufacturer Zare Prototyping (Boretto, Italy) have entered into a technology agreement that combines the two companies' additive manufacturing technologies.

The technology combo, known as direct-metal laser sintering/selective laser melting (DLMS /SLM), involves melting layers of metal powder using a laser, and will lead to production of pre-series, prototypes, and finished components ready for testing, CNC processing, or thermal and superficial treatments.

CRP Meccanica, part of CRP Group, is sending a strong signal to the international market by implementing DMLS/SLM in choosing Zare Prototyping, one of the main operators at the forefront of metal sintering technology. The union will create a complete service capable of supplying the best solutions in terms of production capacity, the materials processed, and the technology used. High-precision machine processing, for which CRP Meccanica has been known for 45 years, is now complete with the contribution of Zare Prototyping, as a means to increase the production of parts and components that require both CNC technology and metal sintering.

“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,” confirms Franco Cevolini, CEO and technical director of the CRP Group.

“Challenging yourself outside your own borders means adapting very quickly and continuously investing in facilities which allow constant technological advancement,” adds Sauro Zanichelli, CEO of Zare Prototyping. “Together, Zare and CRP Meccanica bring experience and innovation to achieve the production of metal-sintered parts and components.”

The alliance signed between CRP Meccanica and Zare Prototyping will complement not only additive and subtractive technologies, but also the experience of highly qualified and specialized personnel, becoming a point of worldwide reference for sectors such as aerospace, medicine, robotics, and other industrial areas that require reliability, high standards of quality, and the ability to create complex parts and prototypes in a quick turnaround.
