For the second year in a row CRP Technology collaborates with ITS MAKER on guidance in training and higher technical education
“We are proud to contribute towards promoting Scientific Culture among young people” states Franco Cevolini, CEO and CTO at CRP Technology and CRP Meccanica.
The Head of the Reverse Engineering Department at CRP Technology, Engineer Matteo Levoni, will be teaching “Materials Processing” at Emilia Romagna’s Higher Institute of Mechanics, Mechatronics, Motoristics and Packaging (ITS MAKER), Modena headquarters.
The project involves the students of the second year of the training course “Higher Technician in Mechanical Design and Materials”.
Materials Processing lasts 12 hours and it is focused on Historical development of 3D printing and related technologies (principles and processes, with focus on Laser Sintering), applications and related case studies.
Matteo Levoni will also unveil how Windform 3D Printing materials, which were originally developed for the motorsports industry, are now finding a diverse range of uses outside of the race track.
ITS MAKER is Emilia Romagna’s Higher Institute of Mechanics, Mechatronics, Motoristics and Packaging. It provides top quality biannual post diploma courses, geared towards gaining access to the best mechanics and mechatronics companies in Emilia Romagna. The training differs from university education in that it is characterized by predominantly laboratory and practical learning, conducted with teachers who are experts in the sector and a large percentage of training takes place in companies.
The two-year Higher Technician in Mechanical Design and Materials training course works on design and industrialization of mechanical products, focusing on the characteristics of materials used and also to the use of representation and simulation software.
It is designed for 22 students with a secondary school diploma preferably of a technical or scientific nature, and it is divided in four semesters for a total of 2000 hours, 800 of which involve didactic internship in the most important mechanical companies.
