Sinthesi Engineering was founded in 1992 in Parabiago, near Milano. It operates in most of Northern Italy and is set up as an ideal partner for the creation of new and innovative ideas. In 1994 the company entered the 3D CAD arena by introducing a few Pro-E stations and in 1996 it acquired its first rapid prototyping machine. In 2000 the company changes its headquarters and introduces prototyping by sterelithography as its core business, while also developing PUR based pre-series. In 2003 Sinthesi Engineering improves the range of services offered by allowing for external interface through the introduction of two Catia V5 stations. In 2008 it builds a new 620 square meters headquarter and factory to diversify the range of rapid prototyping services offered to include new machines and new high performance materials, while also offering a wider range of rendering and fluidodynamic calculation programs. Its current machine array is made up of resin based SLA machines working with ABS, transparent, policarbonate and simile propylene, two rubber stratification systems, 2 PUR replica systems from silicon molds and a finishing system for applying coloring to the prototypes.
