An important event in collaboration with Hufshmied took place on April 4th and 5th in the CMS headquarters.
A genuine partnership exists between CMS and Novation Tech, a leading European company in the processing and production of carbon fiber and composite material components. Novation Tech has two production plants based in Hungary and Croatia, with its main headquarters in Montebelluna, Treviso, where its offices, R&D department, and part of its production are located. Here is where we meet Luca Businaro, CEO and Novation Tech partner.
The principle at the root of a waterjet cut is simple but still surprising. As the name suggests, a jet of water is projected out of an opening at more than twice the speed of sound. The intense flow of pressure allows the water to cut practically any composite material and any kind of metallic alloy. The water flow is very fine, usually between 0.75 mm and 1.20 mm, which means the flow of water can cut details that are impossible to achieve with conventional cutting tools.
In order to fully understand the importance of the OMR group, one needs to start from a list of some of its most valued clients: Iveco, Fiat (Stellantis), Ferrari, Maserati, Renault, Audi, General Motors, BMW, Lamborghini, Alfa, Jeep, Bugatti, Dallara, Zoox as well as customers in the agricultural machinery and earth movement sector such as CNH and Dana.

In the tenth episode of the series, we explore the selection process and introduction of a 3D printer into a company with Cristian Parmeggiani, Italy Country Manager at 3DZ, and Maurizio Bernini, Product Manager Additive & New Technologies at CMS.
The ninth episode is entirely dedicated to the role that materials play in Additive Manufacturing technology.
The battery cases for the electric vehicles (battery cases, also known as shells, casings or battery packs) have a very simple purpose: to store and protect the battery modules. They come in different shapes and sizes and can easily be adapted to the battery modules’ different features. While numerous casings are currently produced in steel (or a combination of aluminum and steel), in the long term, aluminum seems to take the upper hand, especially thanks to its lightness and favorable technical features. It is, therefore, easy to understand how so much attention is focused on the battery case market and is always technologically more advanced both in terms of material and processes.
PUNTOZERO 3D is a team of experts capable of helping companies involved in Additive Manufacturing to make the most of the opportunities available, setting out the paradigms of engineering planning for different additive technologies. It is an organization capable of creating the best products, helping companies innovate and resolving problems with a planning approach outside of traditional frameworks.
With summer comes the desire for holidays, travelling, adventure and freedom. The camper van and caravan are the ideal combination of these 4 desires. Since the 1980s, CMS avant caravan has been the best option available on the market for the production of side walls, flooring and roofs on camper vans and caravans. Motorhomes and panels for refrigerated trucks can be added to these.
Briccoli Modelleria is an Italian company that designs and produces foundry models, molds and equipment. The company’s motto reads “Since 1885, we have been building a future with the oldest art known to man”. The experience matured throughout its history and the technological investments made have allowed it to expand dynamically and flexibly in the market, so they can provide instant answers to a target with different needs, manufacturing high-end products with precision delivery times.
In this seventh episode, Luca Rinaldi will take a close look at university education together with Serena Graziosi, professor at the department of Mechanics at the Politecnico di Milano. Professor Graziosi is an expert in Additive Manufacturing Design and provides us with an in-depth explanation on the role people like her play in the academic world and beyond.
Mistral Optical is a company producing, on average, 50,000 pairs of glasses a month. It is located in Quero Vas in the region of Belluno, global center for eyewear. Working on a pair of glasses is a complex operation that needs to find the perfect balance between expert manpower and automated work done by machines. There are about 30 intermediate stages. Knowing exactly at which stage a product can be found in the various processes, at any given time, is the turning point in the entire production chain; representing real added value in the service offered to one’s clients. Precisely with this in mind, the company decided to connect the numerous CMS machines together, from the latest additions to older versions.
Maurizio Bernini went to the prestigious Fraunhofer IWU Institute in Chemnitz to interview Christopher Schlegel for the sixth episode in this series.
The fifth episode in this series focuses the limelight on Professor Alessandro Pegoretti, Director of the department of industrial engineering at the University of Trento and Giacomo Barera, who is taking his industrial PhD at CMS as a materials expert.
Inventing a machine is easy, building it is more complex, but making it work is everything.
The structural frame part of the aircraft cabin door is a challenging piece to work on, in a sector like aerospace that requires inventive pieces with extreme precision. Perfection in the components can significantly influence cost reduction. The best possible combination between precision, speed, and reliability are needed to work on the cabin door in question. All this is done on a single CMS machine with ultrasound cutting, hole flaring, and piece trimming processings.
In the fourth episode of the series, Giovanni Negri, CMS’s CEO meets Alessio Lorusso, CEO and Founder of Roboze, one of the most surprising organizations on the Additive Manufacturing panorama.
