CNC machining and 3D printing from Weerg.com

 Matteo Rigamonti, the founder of the online printing service Pixartprinting, has now created Weerg.com, the first platform to offer CNC machining and 3D printing exclusively online.

After selling Pixartprinting to the Cimpress Group in 2016, Rigamonti spent some time trying to identify a mature market that was ripe for innovation, before combining the traditional CNC routing and new 3D printing sectors with the advantages of an e-commerce platform.

He explained: “When we first introduced Weerg, which enables customers to simply send their project file online, in one of the many popular 3D CAD formats available, and have it processed in real time, there were those who welcomed the idea with enthusiasm, and those who expressed perplexity, but now, just two years after its launch, we have enjoyed a tenfold increase in turnover and will be investing millions of euros in cutting edge technology.”

The company uses powerful machines, capable of guaranteeing extremely high levels of automation, which are divided into two production lines, one of which uses a battery of 10 Hermle five-axis, continuous work centres for CNC machining, while the other uses three HP Jet Fusion 4200 machines to produce 3D prints.

Rigamonti continued: “The demand for 3D works has exceeded our expectations and we have received many orders from customers attracted by the speed of our delivery times, which necessitated an immediate increase in our production capacity.

“The performance of the Jet Fusion 4200 printers fully met our expectations and they have proved to be incredibly fast and productive with very competitive costs, even for the production of runs of up to 5,000 pieces. We are convinced that thanks to this technology, 3D Printing, which has so far been limited to experimental uses, will soon become both ubiquitous and functional.”

He added that many Weerg customers are in fact using 3D printing for applications that were previously carried out in CNC or die-casting, while others are using the technology to service new markets.

Based in Marghera, Venice, in the same building where Pixartprinting began, thanks to the internet, Weerg has no geographical boundaries. Rigamonti reports that currently, 33 percent of its customers are Italian and 24 percent are German, with the rest operating elsewhere in Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

Rigamonti concluded: “I’ve always been passionate about mechanics, but what I find extremely stimulating is being able to offer the market what it needs. With Weerg we are able to provide users with a solution that wasn’t there previously – one that combines price transparency, with speed of execution and delivery.”
