FIT AG, Lupburg, Germany, reports that it has founded a subsidiary, FIT Eurazio s.r.o., based in Modletice near Prague, Czech Republic. FIT Eurazio is reported to have agreed extensive cooperation with 4isp s.r.o., also based in Modletice and a specialist in production systems using laser technology.
The company states that the cooperation aims to expand FIT’s range of products and services and to add technical prototypes made of sheet metal to the service portfolio. For this purpose, a production facility will be established in Modletice. In return, FIT Eurazio will offer the additive development and manufacturing services of the FIT Group in Central and Eastern Europe.
Carl Fruth, CEO of FIT AG, noted the objectives of the new business unit, “4isp and FIT are both specialists in the use of lasers in the production of metal components, each with their own focus. 4isp specialises in sheet metal cutting, while the FIT Group specialises in Additive Manufacturing and industrial 3D printing.”
Fruth added, “With this cooperation, we are launching the new Laser Technology division in the FIT Group, in which we will make our specialist know-how available to manufacturing companies of all kinds. This means we will also be able to offer technical prototypes made of sheet metal to our existing prototyping customers.”
