VELO3D, the digital manufacturing innovator, has signed an agreement with CRP Meccanica, a leader in high-precision CNC machining services with 20 years’ experience in the field of metal 3D printing technologies, for exclusive distributorship of its advanced SupportfreeTM Metal 3D printing systems in the Italian market.
It is also empowered to sell the equipment in some other parts of Europe on an account basis, as well as provide after-sales support, service, maintenance, and production backup to customers throughout the region.
Speaking on the agreement, Franco Cevolini, CTO and President CRP Meccanica said, “We are leading the revolution in additive manufacturing technology. VELO3D’s Sapphire® metal 3D printing solution is the next generation in metal laser powder bed fusion. It’s a real game-changer for highly exacting industrial fields like aerospace, oil & gas and motorsports. Our company’s international reputation for expertise will help VELO3D transform the Italian and European metal 3D printing markets.”
According to Benny Buller, founder and CEO of VELO3D, “CRP Meccanica is unique with its more than half a century of experience serving high-tech industries with precision CNC machining and advanced manufacturing processes. Their 20 years working with metal metal 3D printing technologies have led them to appreciate the significant technological and customer benefits that our Sapphire system represents, so they are an excellent partner for us to support the Italian and greater-European markets.”
Cevolini added, “We are ready to embrace this cutting-edge technology, combining it with our expertise in serving the most demanding industrial sectors and delivering extraordinary results. The skills of the CRP companies, combined with VELO3D’s leading AM systems, will give life to an unprecedented, unique technological point of reference in the world.”
VELO3D’s unique additive manufacturing capabilities allow for the production of parts that cannot be made via any other technology—including most current metal 3D printing systems. It alleviates the designer from the constraints of Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM), meaning that engineers can now get the parts they really need, not just the parts advocated by commodity AM and DfAM practitioners.
