Things are moving on the Italian side of the additive manufacturing world. BEAMIT and ZARE, two well-established companies in the Italian AM landscape have announced their merging into one single organization with now over 100 employees.
With operations across 5 plants concentrated in a 40 Km area between Parma and Reggio Emilia, in the most industrialized and innovative district of the European Region. The structure is completed by 4 commercial offices in France, Germany, United Kingdom and Japan.
Both companies will continue to operate with their brands, but activities will converge into BEAMIT Group, whose specialization is to provide a comprehensive range of materials, processes, technologies and certifications to the international Aeronautical, Aerospace and Defence, Energy, Motorsport, Oil & Gas, Transportation & Industrial sectors.
Following the recent integration of Pres-X, the hub-ecosystem is now officially taking off in the world of competences, processes and technologies available to the market in order to bring Additive Manufacturing into a new industrial and digital dimension.
With this new set-up the Group mission is to make customer life and processes easier in all crucial strategic activities through fully integrated operations with unique partner services. This does not change anything for Sandvik that already holds a significant stake in BeamIT.
BEAMIT SpA is based in Italy, with over 22 years of experience in metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) and more than 30 metal AM dedicated systems. The company is a trusted supplier of advanced metal AM-components to demanding industries like aerospace, automotive, energy and racing and holds a number of relevant quality certifications, including AS9100:2016 for aerospace and NADCAP approval (National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program).
ZARE srl, operating since 1963, has progressively grown into an integrated Additive Manufacturing service bureau, devoting its activities to the production of complex components for motorsport, aerospace, automotive and oil & gas. ZARE’s services include quality assurance and certifications like AS9100:2016 and IATF 16949. Technologies offered are based on 25 different AM types, 10 CNC machines and a full range of services supported by a highly motivated and dynamic team of 50 people.
PRES-X srl is a company providing highly qualified solutions in additive post-processing, from de-powdering to precision surface finish technologies. PRES-X has been the first company in the world to install a HIQ60 system, an equipment designed specifically for AM parts. The HIQ60 System, located in Italy, performs heat treatments at high pressure, with specific features for a complete thermal cycle control, allowing to perform Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) and heat treatment at the same time.
Mauro Antolotti, BEAMIT President said: “I had the opportunity to meet special people and courageous entrepreneurs, Sauro Zanichelli and Andrea Pasquali. The idea to grow the Group further was born during one of these meetings: BEAMIT, Pres-X and ZARE. The extended organization is created to serve and support our common customers with a true 360-degree service span as well as greater investment capacity and financial strength, in order to become even stronger to meet further market challenges, while securing total reliability for present and new customers into this journey together. The Group is now officially launched: our claim is [we were] “born for you to stay by your side”.
Andrea Pasquali, ZARE General Manager said: “We have known Mauro for quite a long time and when he shared with us the challenging project he had in mind, we were truly impressed by the potential that the creation of the Group would generate. As he explained the amazing scenarios obtained by our merger, we immediately realized the huge step forward that this would bring in additive manufacturing as well as the maximization of customer service: a must for ZARE. With the Group, process optimization and integration will be unprecedented: this will enable to unlock new opportunities and break process limits that are still difficult to overcome today. Integrated additive manufacturing is finally concrete: this Group is ready for the market.”
The Board of Directors of the new set-up sees equal representation of BEAMIT and ZARE top management, securing that the alliance will continue to be inspired by a shared passion and vision.
