200 pieces in 7 hours

5 reasons why it is more advantageous to produce additives compared to traditional production technologies The rapid prototyping market is growing and has been the first market to discover the enormous benefits of 3D printing. Today, the real breakthrough is in producing definitive pieces with additive technologies. 5 reasons why 3D printing is convenient No equipment costs Production speed Reduction of costs Ability to make changes to mathematics without interrupting production Replacement of parts to be assembled since it is possible to rethink and produce them in one piece. Today I want to tell you a real case, about a month ago we were contacted by a company for the realization of 200 parts to be assembled on a piece…

The future of Additive manufacturing:

Yesterday afternoon we ended our tour of appointments in our 3 major reference cities: Milan, Modena and Turin. This time again it was a unique opportunity to present our company to those who do not know us yet and to strengthen the relationship with those who have worked with us for so long. During the three days we have heard important characters in the 3D printing world such as Professor Marinella Levi of the Politecnico of Milan, Davide Ferrulli of Hp, our General manager Italo Moriggi and many others that I take the opportunity to thank publicly. We communicate every day on the web through our social channels, our site on the advertising pages and much more but there is…

From single piece to production: how rapid prototyping is changing the world

Rapid prototyping for some still is an unknown world to discover. In the early 2000s those who used rapid prototyping technology had two needs: Realize a detail in a very short time Bring down the cost of equipment for the production of the pieces Today things have changed a lot! Rapid prototyping and in particular additive manufacturing technologies have marked a turning point not only in prototyping but also in production. The emergence of new technologies and the availability of any type of material: plastic, metal, rigid or flexible allows to achieve definitive productions with the use of 3D printing. Let's look at the benefits of the major additive manufacturing technologies on the market. FDM Technology uses the same tried…

Welcome to the era of digital production!

"Reinvent the way you produce functional parts and prototypes" After only 3 months from the first Jet Fusion 3D installation, Skorpion Engineering decide to install a new machine in the Trofarello manufacturing center expanding even further its production capacity with this new and extraordinary technology. A winning technology from the very first day of operation for any type of customer. Let's see what are the advantages of HP Jet Fusion 3D printer that is revolutionizing the world of prototyping and production of small series. 1. Production speed: 10 times faster than any other 3D printer.“ HP says 3D Multi Jet Fusion technology allows you to print three-dimensional objects up to 10 times faster than current 3D printing methods and at…

Think Big

I believe that in life in general you always have to have big goals, unique destinations. Only then we can get further than we ourselves can imagine. That is why when a customer asks us to make a project even the most complex our answer is always:It can be done!Technologies, knowledge and skills are fundamental but even more is the desire to reach any goal by overcoming any obstacle.Think Big has always been one of our payoffs because our specialty is the production of large pieces.We produce monolithic prototypes in stereolithography up to 2000x1000x1000mm with the great advantage of avoiding bonding of the pieces. Also through vacuum casting we can make typically pre-series of automotive components up to 2000mm, while…

The importance of finishing in the rapid prototyping world

Those who follow me for a while know that innovative prototyping technologies are being used more and more frequently by different types of industries, but above all in the automotive industry. Technology alone is not enough, having a rough prototype in just a few hours is already fantastic, but being able to have it painted and working is also great. Thanks to our know-how and our experience we are able to work on different materials in order to apply the finest finishes such as the soft-touch effect. A special coating is only applicable when the plastic prototype is perfectly smooth and has a soft touch to the touch and the sight. Chromium, wood and carbon finishes are also often required,…

Skorpion Engineering lands in Emilia Romagna

After the success in the Turin area Skorpion Engineering is preparing for a new challenge and arrives in Modena. Even though we live in the industry 4.0 era, our customers want to feel that we are close to them, so our factory in Trofarello (TO) has proved to be a success. Our customers like to come in order to see their work in progress and to discuss a project with our team of sales, project and designers manager. For us nothing is more important than the satisfaction of our customers and for that we want to get closer to all of our customers in Emilia Romagna, initially with a referent then we will start installing our machines and developing a…

BARILLA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 2017

The BARILLA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 2017 event has just ended these days, during which we attended the award ceremony of renowned international chefs with the prizes made by Skorpion Engineering. The awards, designed by Antonio Aricò were made with the use of latest-generation additive technologies such as Jet Fusion HP 3D. The most important aspect of this project was the cure for the finishes and details, to give maximum value to the prizes. In this project the tradition meets design and technological innovation to create objects with a unique flavour, but above all object Made in Italy. Once again our company has demonstrated its ability to combine technologies and expertise in different areas and with different interlocutors, because our technology is…

Think additive!

Since 3D printing has entered the world of rapid prototyping, there have been many changes in the industry world, which are mainly reflected in the following three aspects: • Drastic reduction in production times • High level of precision • Possibility to realize any type of geometry The real advantage is lightening, and this is only achieved with a little effort: think additive, think in terms of additive production. Software as Evolve and Inspire followed by FEM analysis allow to realize particular like automotive or aerospace components removing material where not needed without changing the technical and mechanical characteristics of the pieces. To fully exploit the potential of additive technologies and make solutions achieved truly efficient it is however essential…

Hp Jet Fusion: a 3D printing revolution!

Today we will talk about HP Jet Fusion 3D and how this technology is marking a big change in the world of additive manufacturing. Have you seen the presentation video? This video shows the creation of a chain ring of over 100 grams in only 30 minutes but the most impressive aspect is the fact that this ring can lift 4500 kg of weight. The installation of this machine in our production center of Trofarello took place about two months, and every day we discover the advantages of this technology. First of all, the speed of production. We managed to deliver 1000 small pieces over 48 hours, is not it amazing? In the Hp world we have always talked about…
