CRP Technology and CRP USA have been shortlisted as finalists in the prestigious TCT Awards 2024, demonstrating their commitment to innovation and excellence in additive manufacturing. CRP Technology, a pioneering Italian AM provider, has been recognized in two distinguished categories. The company’s advanced thermoplastic polyurethane, Windform TPU, has earned nominations for both the TCT Creative Application Award and the TCT Materials Award. These accolades highlight the groundbreaking use of Windform TPU in creating the dynamic and lifelike cat’s eye prop for Michael Mann’s film ‘Ferrari’. The prop’s exceptional elasticity, flexibility, impact resistance, and elongation at break exceeding 400% underscore the material’s versatility and superior performance in demanding applications.

“These acknowledgments underscore our relentless commitment to pushing the boundaries of what is possible in additive manufacturing. We are honored to receive this recognition and remain dedicated to advancing high technology, efficiency, and innovative materials,” said Franco Cevolini, CEO and Technical Director of CRP Technology.

CRP USA, the 3D printing service bureau, has also been celebrated for its exceptional contributions. The company’s laser-sintered oil and water catch cans, crafted using Windform SP, a Carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic composite from CRP Technology, have secured a finalist position in the TCT Automotive & Rail Application Award category. These critical components were designed for the University of Victoria Formula Racing team’s car, exemplifying outstanding performance and reliability in the rigorous environment of Formula SAE racing.

“The durability and performance of parts 3D printed by CRP USA using Windform materials are exceptional. In competitions like the 2023 event, where we secured the title of the best-placing Canadian team, CRP USA’s support was invaluable. We are proud that the 3D printed liquid catch cans in Windform are recognized as finalists by an award that celebrates the pinnacle of additive manufacturing,” said Luke Wooldridge, Powertrain Lead of UVic Formula Racing.

“We are thrilled by the fantastic results achieved by the University of Victoria Formula Racing team. Being named a finalist in the TCT Awards is not only an honor but also underscores our relentless commitment to supporting our partners with the latest advancements in Windform tailored to their needs,” said Chris Brewster, CEO of CRP USA.

The TCT Awards finalists were selected from over 100 candidates across 11 categories, representing the very best in products and applications in the additive manufacturing industry. Winners will be announced at the black-tie awards ceremony on June 5th at the National Conference Centre in Birmingham, UK, alongside the annual TCT 3Sixty event.
