CRP Technology, a leading 3D printing service bureau known for its Windform range of composites for SLS process, has announced its participation in the upcoming edition of Space-Comm Expo.

This marks the first time that CRP Technology will attend this prestigious event, demonstrating its commitment to advancing the aerospace industry through innovative additive manufacturing solutions.

A substantial part of the innovation proposed by CRP Technology lies in the Windform materials, five of which have passed the outgassing tests led by NASA and ESA (in accordance to the ASTM E-595-07 and ECSS-Q-ST-70-02C standards).

Space-Comm Expo will take place on 6th and 7th March at the Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre in Farnborough.

CRP Technology will be located at booth D7, where attendees can explore a showcase of functional, space-proof components and parts manufactured for some key leader customers by the company's highly skilled staff using Windform composites as manufacturing materials.

Visitors to CRP's booth will have the opportunity to learn about the latest advancements in the aerospace sector achieved through professional 3D printing and the utilisation of Windform high-performance composite materials.

Of particular interest is the application of these technologies in the rapidly expanding sector of small satellites.

Franco Cevolini, CEO and CTO of CRP Technology, commented on the significance of additive manufacturing technologies in small satellite applications, saying: "Additive manufacturing technologies offer both opportunities and challenges to engineers and scientists in the field. While the ability to produce parts and components using these technologies holds promise in both metals and plastics, the most significant breakthroughs in recent years have been with thermoplastic carbon fibre reinforced composites. Our Windform range of materials, specifically designed for laser sintering process, plays a crucial role in this advancement. Originally developed for the motorsport industry, the twelve materials in the Windform range are now making strides in applications such as UAS, CubeSats, PocketQubes, and other space exploration endeavours

“Our partner company, CRP USA, has been instrumental in pioneering this sector, overcoming numerous challenges and contributing to the success of space missions with 3D printing and Windform materials. We have learned invaluable lessons from CRP USA, and today, we are proud to be one of the most trusted 3D printing services for space-ready parts."
