PRES-X S.R.L. has joined the ColdMetalFusion Alliance, together with other major industry players. With its track record in classical manufacturing, the company adds its wide array of capabilities – from tomography, or x-ray analysis, over hot isostatic pressing, (HIP) or heat treatment, to surface finishing including DryLyte, chemical etching, grid blasting, and drag finishing processes with in-house developed custom media. PRES-X is also a distributor of equipment, such as DryLyte, and can help customers scale up their operation from initial proof of concept to large-scale operation. PRES-X joins ColdMetalFusion together with partners from sintering, industrial manufacturing, and 3D printing.

ColdMetalFusion is an alliance of industry leaders with decades of experience in the fields of sintering, 3D printing, and classical industrial manufacturing. Together, the Alliance members provide services, equipment, material, software, and know-how to customers in the metal manufacturing industry.

PRES-X is in a unique position as an R&D and process developer on top of many of the world’s cutting-edge technology providers. We understand the huge potential of ColdMetalFusion to finally standardize part surface properties along the process chain both in green part and sintered part stage. This is fully aligned with our vision to make post-processing more efficient, cheaper, and green.  Pres-X is already working on ColdMetalFusion projects pushing way beyond the one million parts threshold thanks to the stability and robustness of ColdMetalFusion. We are industrialists by heritage and as such share many values such as trust, reliability, and innovation with the other ColdMetalFusion members. This shared culture is one of the reasons why we have decided to join the ColdMetalFusion Alliance,” said Andrea Scanavini, CEO of PRES-X.

ColdMetalFusion’s vision is to industrialize additive manufacturing through common standards in between sintering and additive manufacturing. ColdMetalFusion members not only share standards but also a common culture and way of thinking.  As ‘industrialists’ with a long history, the members have an exigence of robustness and 24/7 operation of a factory. The joining of PRES-X is the reported tipping point to accelerate that vision for ColdMetalFusion. Together with other members, PRES-X will instill this thinking into joint solutions.
