CRP Technology selected for the 3D Printing Industry Awards 2021

After the victory in 2019, CRP Technology is shortlisted again for the prestigious awards dedicated to 3D printing. Two the categories reached by the Italy-based company: "Material Company of the Year" and "Best aerospace application". The Awards will be broadcast live on the 3D Printing Industry YouTube channel on October 21st, 2021, at 1600 BST

After winning the 2019 edition, CRP Technology is once again shortlisted upon the 3D Printing Industry Awards 2021: this reader and industry-driven accolade confirms CRP Technology, which has been involved in professional 3D printing with its Windform® composite materials for over 25 years, one of the world-leaders in the Additive Manufacturing sector.

CRP Technology competes in two categories: "Material Company of the Year" and "Aerospace Automotive or Energy Application" with the 3D printed main structure of the 3U technological demonstrator CubeSat for the Research Laboratory at Paris-Est Créteil University.

Everyone can vote on the shortlists at the 3D Printing Industry website:
Voting closes on Wednesday 20th October, 2021.
Winners will be announced during the online awards. The event will be live-streamed on 3D Printing Industry YouTube channel on Thursday 21th October 2021, 1600 BST:

The 2021 categories were designed to represent the broad span of applications of 3D printing, the range of technology used in the industry, and "also to acknowledge the companies and people that make our industry such a fulfilling area to work in", states the 3DPI's Award Organizing Committee.

"We are very proud to be shortlisted in two such important categories - Engineer Franco Cevolini, CEO and CTO at CRP Technology, comments - after winning the 2019 edition as "Material company of the year", we launched four new Windform® materials: Windform® P2 for High Speed Sintering technology, and 3 materials for Selective Laser Sintering, namely two flame retardants including the first in the world Carbon-fiber reinforced, and Windform RS with unique mechanical characteristics for its high resistance and high resilience properties."
"In addition - Cevolini adds - along with the partner company CRP USA, we have increasingly consolidated our presence in the Aerospace sector by the construction of main structures for the most advanced, operational and space-proven nano satellites.
The categories which we are competing in, are not exhaustive of the contribution we brought to the world of Additive Manufacturing in over 25 years of activity alongside the most advanced industrial sectors, but they aptly represent us."

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
