CRP USA, LLC
3D Printing, from the Race Track to Orbit.
The CRP USA based in Mooresville in North Carolina devoted its activity to the American market of Stockcar and additive manufacturing, application widely used in the United States. A staff of specialists study and draw up plans for the world of American motorsports, aerospace and UAV.
When discussing advanced manufacturing or innovative materials in the world of motorsports, it is most common to hear of the technologies that have been initially developed for Aerospace being applied at the track. Carbon fiber, Metal Matrix Composites and Titanium Alloys are a few that have origins in the Aerospace world. Windform materials developed by CRP Technology in Modena Italy, has become one of the few exceptions, as it was originally created for Motorsports applications (NASCAR, F1, MotoGP and Sports Car series) and is now being used in CubeSat technology, with components currently orbiting the earth.

Professional Development and Development of the Profession
The Piedmont-Carolina ASME Senior Section is dedicated to the development of the Engineering profession. To that end, we support The College of Engineering at North Carolina State University (NCSU) and their branch of their Youth Engineering Summer Program in Charlotte. We refer to this as “Development of the Profession”. Our ASME Section has donated a fund to be used for enrollment fees for those who may assistance in the enrollment cost. On February 20th at our Dinner Event in celebration of National Engineers Week a check was presented to the Carr Hughes the Engineering Camp Charlotte. Mrs. Hughes stated “As you know, there are thousands of students in Mecklenburg and surrounding areas who do not have the means to attend such a program. You are making it possible. You may change the very course of a child’s life with this donation. This scholarship fund will enable seven students to attend Engineering Camp Charlotte. Your contribution will make a huge difference in a child’s life and for that, we are extremely grateful”.
