CRP Technology revises commercial strategy for Windform materials
CRP Technology has announced that it will no longer sell its Windform composite materials to service bureaus for the toll-manufacture of 3D printing components.
CRP Technology (Modena, Italy) has announced that it will no longer sell its Windform composite materials to service bureaus for the toll-manufacture of 3D printing components. CRP Technology and CRP USA (Mooresville, N.C., U.S.) will continue to offer Windform products to companies that directly produce their own components (OEMs), along with the company’s support for installation and assistance.
According to the company, the aim of CRP Technology is to ensure the highest quality in the manufacture of 3D-printed components in Windform. This has characterized the modus operandi of CRP Technology for over 20 years, and the revision to the company’s commercial policy is said to align with this goal.
The increase in production capacity both in Europe and in the United States will guarantee each customer the volumes necessary to satisfy any global request, the company says, in compliance with CRP Technology’s standards of service and quality.
The recent achievement of the ISO 9001: 2015 standard (regarding the manufacture of 3D-printed parts and the production of Windform composite materials for SLS technology) is in line with the new strategy decided by the board management, as well as the quality of the production process achieved from CRP Technology.
