QPRO was founded in early 2016 as an innovative start-up in the production of advanced alloy metal components using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) technology. This technology enables the production of artifacts by creating and adding successive layers of material.
The materials are selectively solidified, with great material and energy savings when it comes to complex shapes not otherwise achievable in one piece.
QPRO TODAY TOWARD THE
CHALLENGE OF INNOVATION
Today QPRO is the leading manufacturer in Italy of CoCrMo ASTM F75 with more than 30.000 produced pieces and more than 70.000 production hours. This alloy is one of the most important ones in orthopedic implants, it’s even better than the more known Titanium-based alloys. It’s in fact one of the strongest metallic alloys both in additive manufacturing and machining with an Rm resistance above 1000 Mpa and excellent resistance to corrosion, even at high temperatures.
All pieces produced by QPRO undergo HIP (Hot Isostatic Pressing) treatment at 1200°C and 1020 bar pressure in Argon. This treatment compresses at very high pressure the material close to its plastic state and, by eliminating any microporosity, it allows to better the already excellent metal fatigue endurance. QPRO is equipped with modern CNC 5-axis machining centers. With these machines the artifacts, obtained from additive manufacturing, are finalized in their required geometric features.
QPRO is certified according to ISO 13485:2021. by TÜV Süd. ISO 13485 is the globally recognised standard for quality management in the medical device industry. This certification guarantees our customers that QPRO complies with the highest quality standards based on its certified organisation and documentation.
QPRO MEANS QUALITY,
QPRO IS ISO 13485
Evaluation and development of innovative solutions
Feasibility study of special structures
Production of prothesic toolings
For orthopedics, the main benefit of additive manufacturing is the possibility of creating implants with high osseointegration capacity surfaces. This enables the manufacturing of complex components in different sizes and shapes, perfectly adaptable to any anatomical requirement.
Thanks to the long lasting cooperation with Dr. Lodovico Renzi Brivio, QPRO is also able to provide a wide range of services in the orthopedic- traumatology field:
CRAFTSMANSHIP IN THE THIRD MILLENNIUM
QPRO can rapidly supply jigs & fixtures for a wide variety of industrial applications, produced with additive manufacturing of composite materials - polymers and carbon fibres, Kevlar, HT glass fibres.
By jigs & fixtures we mean all the equipment that, in an industrial context, supports and aids: Quality Control operations (e.g. Poke Yoke), the fastening of artefacts in the works, components assembling, positioning jigs etc.
