CRP Technology strengthens its European presence by signing an agreement with LSS Laser-Sinter-Service GmbH

Through the agreement, LSS will sell the composite SLS materials Windform® XT 2.0 and Windform SP throughout the German and Austrian markets.

Windform XT 2.0 and Windform SP are the polyamide-based carbon fibre reinforced materials from the Windform family of High-Performance 3D printing materials, created and developed by the R&D department of CRP Technology.

“We are pleased to launch this new dealer alliance”, states Franco Cevolini, CEO and Technical Director at CRP Technology. “LSS is our support and service provider for AM. We have known each other for a very long time now. Together with LSS we’ve developed customer-specific solutions and hardware and software upgrades for our 3D Printing Department. Now with LSS we decided to improve our collaboration. This agreement will further strengthen our business relationship and it will act as an important step in introducing Windform materials to new customers throughout Germany and Austria.”

Hermann Hanning, CTO of LSS GmbH: “I think this strategic collaboration is a logical consequence of our long-term partnership. We are thrilled being able to offer a benchmark-setting turn-key solution consisting of CRP’s Windform XT 2.0/ SP materials and LSS powered polymer laser sintering (PLS) equipment.”

According to the agreement, LSS will not only sell Windform XT 2.0 and Windform SP but will be able to provide the appropriate technical support, depending on customer’s needs, from initial set-up to the material processing phase.

Windform XT 2.0 is a ground-breaking carbon fibre reinforced composite 3D printing material known for its mechanical properties. It is particularly suitable in demanding applications such as motorsports, aerospace, and UAV sectors.

Windform XT 2.0 is an innovative material which replaces the previous formula of Windform XT within the Windform® family of materials.

Windform XT 2.0 features improvements in mechanical properties including +8% increase in tensile strength, +22% in tensile modulus, and a +46% increase in elongation at break.

The material allows for the creation of accurate, reliable, and durable prototypes and is perfect for functional applications.

Windform SP is a carbon fibre reinforced composite polyamide material characterized by a dark black colour.

Windform SP has excellent mechanical properties similar to Windform XT 2.0, with the addition of increased resistance to shock, vibrations, and deformation. The material also shows an increase in impact strength and elongation at break, as well as excellent thermal properties and resistance to high temperatures.

Windform SP is a material with optimal strength to weight ratio.

Windform SP has waterproof properties and is resistant to absorption of liquids and moisture.

Windform materials are laser sintering materials for 3D printing and Additive Manufacturing.

Windform composite SLS materials were born from the meticulous study and testing of the R&D department at CRP Technology.

Windform materials can satisfy the needs of the international market of Additive Manufacturing and can guarantee originality, innovation, reliability, and especially mechanical performance.

Windform materials make it possible to fabricate high-performance parts for wind tunnel applications, as well as fully functional and beautifully finished parts for nearly endless applications.

Furthermore, Windform materials can be CNC machined to obtain excellent dimensional accuracy, speed up production and save time.
