Modena-based CRP Meccanica is now the exclusive distributor for Italy of VELO3D Metal printers. CRP Meccanica, a leader in High-Precision CNC Machining service with 20 years of experience in the field of metal additive technologies, has signed the distribution agreement to become the exclusive distributor for the Italian market and an account distributor for Europe of VELO3D High-Performance SupportFreeTM Metal 3D printers. The experience and credibility the whole world recognizes in CRP Meccanica will help VELO3D transform the Italian and European metal 3D printing market. The skills of the CRP companies combined with VELO3D ‘s advanced technology will give life to an unprecedented, unique technological point of reference in the world. “I strongly believe in this project-Cevolini added. VELO3D ‘s Sapphire Metal Additive Manufacturing solution is the next generation in metal laser powder bed fusion, is a real game-changer, and can make the difference in many high-level industrial fields.” Franco Cevolini concluded: “Metal AM systems must address the challenge of support structures that are added to parts. This is a constraint: these supports need to be removed so this requirement adds steps throughout the workflow that negatively affect time, cost and quality. VELO3D has solved the issue, making advanced Metal AM a SupportFreeTM technology, suitable for the most demanding industrial sectors, which must manufacture parts of the highest level. The benefit of support-less metal AM promotes innovation by removing barriers that constrain designs, processes, and business models.” Never failing its avant-garde entrepreneurial origin, CRP Meccanica is planning a second phase in which the figure of the distributor will be revolutionized: “We are planning – Cevolini added – to set up in our production area a ‘technopole’, a highly technological integrated system to offer to VELO3D customers a complete, high-quality turnkey service.”
