An agreement has been signed between Italy’s CRP Meccanica and Zare Prototyping. CRP Meccanica is recognised internationally for its high precision machine processing in motorsport, whilst Zare Prototyping is a market leader in metal Additive Manufacturing.

CRP Meccanica, with headquarters in Modena and part of CRP Group, states that it wanted to send a strong signal to the international market by implementing the service of Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) / Selective Laser Melting (SLM) through an agreement with Zare Prototyping, one of the main operators at the forefront of metal AM technology. 

The union is expected to offer a complete service capable of supplying the best solutions, both in terms of production capacity and the materials processed and the technology used. High precision machine processing, for which CRP Meccanica has been known for 45 years, is now supported with the contribution of Zare Prototyping as a means to increase the production of parts and components which require both CNC technology and metal Additive Manufacturing. 

“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. Our objective is to continue to innovate, in both precision machining and in the production of DLMS / SLM components,” stated Franco Cevolini, CEO and Technical Director of the CRP Group. 

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