At the Reggio Emilia Technopole to talk about 3D printing and Industry 4.0

In February we will take part in a series of meetings entitled “3D printing for the mass customization of Industry 4.0”, organized by Reggio Emilia Technopole, to deepen the opportunities offered by additive manufacturing technologies.

Tecnopolo di Reggio Emilia

The Reggio Emilia Technopole is one of ten Technopoles of the Emilia Romagna High Technology Network which aims to offer skills, instruments, innovative products, more efficient processes, new technologies and resources to the production system based on the needs of businesses.

“3D printing for the mass customization of Industry 4.0” is a cycle of three meetings whose purpose is to analyze the possibilities of use of the AM. AM can be a tool to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of industrial processes through re-engineering, metal replacement, cost reduction…

The three meetings want to demonstrate, as in Industry 4.0 the role of Additive Manufacturing goes well beyond the concept of Technological Innovation to arrive at the optimization of the entire industrial process, implementing the company’s efficiency itself and contributing to customer satisfaction.

Even if the 3D printing was born as a tool to support hobbyists and craftsmen who needed to make small objects or as a means of prototyping, today the border between these realities and the additive production that is part of the real industrial world is increasingly evident.


As far as we are concerned, it could not be otherwise: that of additive manufacturing is a sector in which innovation is part of everyday reality. Being constantly updated on technologies and materials allows us to state that 70% of the company’s turnover is given by the production of definitive elements. Only in this way 3D printing definitely evolves into Additive Manufacturing, opening a new range of solutions linked to production, design and engineering possibilities.

Lorenzo Trombi, Material Engineer Specialist of Zare, will speak at the second and third meetings on 12 and 26 February, respectively entitled “Additive technologies for metals: from design to production” and “Additive Manufacturing and automation change industrial processes, from design to production”.
