CRP Technology celebrates 25 year anniversary

Italian 3D printing service provider CRP Technology has celebrated its 25th anniversary. Launched by Roberto Cevolini back in 1996, CRP Technology started by investing in a sinter station for Selective Laser Sintering – at the time, it was the only company in Italy to own one. By the end of the 1990s, the firm had launched its Windform range of composite 3D printing materials, which have now seen use in applications such as satellites, patch testing for the medical sector, and fashion and design.

Roberto Cevolini’s son, Engineer Franco Cevolini, VP and CTO at CRP Technology, stated, “Purchasing an industrial 3D printer wasn’t enough for us, we wanted to make a major and stronger contribution: we decided to create a family of 3D printing materials suitable to manufacture high performing parts and applications, which could meet the needs of our F1 customers.”
