FIT Additive Manufacturing Group enters Italian market

Lupburg (2018-09-24) Italy is a promising market for additive manufacturing. Fast growing German FIT Additive Manufacturing Group is cooperating with Simone Casella, an established insider of the Italian additive scene, to promote its Large Format Additive Manufacturing.

Market research has shown that there is rising demand in Italy for Large Format Additive Manufacturing, a considerable strength of FIT. With Gel Dispensing Printing (GDP) for plastics and Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) for metal, FIT offers leading edge Large Format Additive Manufacturing technology.

In art, culture, and in advertising large plastic objects are required with very short lead times. With GDP, FIT manufactures high, internally hollow, and stable objects which can have surfaces fulfilling almost any requirements. Such objects are very catchy and useful for artists, architects, set designers and prop masters, booth builders, shop builders, scenery makers, event organizers, and many more.

For industrial metal components, FIT offers its five-axis surface welding technology WAAM, which uses a wide range of wire material to manufacture machinery components or spar parts at very high speeds.

High potential for large additive components
“I see high potential in the cooperation with FIT”, said Simone Casella, owner of DSC International, a representative company. Carl Fruth, founder and CEO of FIT, added: “We are the ideal development partner for clients who have a great product idea, but require the know-how of an experienced manufacturer. We advise our clients on material and technology selection, design, data preparation, and finishing options – now also in Italy.”
