NCS into the global market of ergonomics for automotive with JAC Motors

The Automotive sector has been for NCS one of the main passions since 2003, when Marcello Fantuzzi and Matteo Mantovani (respectively Technical Director & President and CEO of NCS Company) combined their expertise in rapid prototyping and engineering, making RP and additive manufacturing one of the main core businesses and beating heart of the Company, counting among their customers very important brands worldwide that have chosen NCS for the production of small prototypes or real display models.

Automotive  is now facing important and ambitious challenges: it is not just about designing more performing machines or innovative design, but it is about the actual need to look to the future (we can mention electric cars and self-drive cars).

This is the spirit of the partnership between JAC Motors and NCS: a long-term goal (2020 – 2040) that aims at  becoming together international players in the world of automotive ergonomics by developing electric cars with independent driving.

JAC Motors is the Chinese industrial giant with a global production of vehicles that are marketed all over the world and a production volume of more than 700,000 units per year.

Chinese cars with an Italian soul: the JAC style centre is in fact located in Turin, in Pianezza to be precise, where the staff headed by Daniele Gaglione, (Architect, born in 1974, director of the Jac Italy Design Centre since 2018), has developed projects for JAC S2, S3, S5, SC-9 Concept, SC-5 Concept, S4.

Today JAC, through the support of NCS, aims at becoming the world’s largest manufacturer of electric self-driven cars.

NCS, thanks to the R&D department that has developed two specific projects SHoW Motion and Cogito Ergonomic, will perform studies and evaluations on vehicle ergonomics through motion kinematics detection systems with inertial sensors.

All the companies in this sector, from automakers to traditional companies in tech sector, are attending this self-guided competition.

It’s not science fiction, then, but a real and achievable arrival point for NCS and JAC, combining the expertise of Gaglione’s team and the experience, passion and innovation that makes NCS grow every day, becoming a pioneer of new and cutting-edge technologies.

Schedoni, the italian luxury leather goods icon for automotive chooses NCS Company

NCS & Schedoni, Together.

Schedoni, the italian luxury leather goods icon for automotive chooses NCS Company

Schedoni, the historical Italian company based in Modena, produces authentic luggage jewellery for almost 140 years.
Now, thanks to the agreement signed between Marcello Fantuzzi, Technical Director & President of NCS and Simone Schedoni, fourth generation of the family at the head of SCHEDONI, NCS enters the world of Luxury.

Schedoni is the first company in the world to invent “luxury luggage for the automotive industry”.

This is a story that begins in 1977 from the cooperation with Ferrari Automobili: since then, a costumized set of suitcases has been dedicated to each car model to optimize the spaces in the trunk.

It is a story that continues today with completely handmade coatings made of refined leathers, the bespoke suitcase developed for the best Italian and British automakers.
Unique objects that combine the leather of the car interiors with technological materials such as carbon fiber, titanium, aluminum machined by numerical control.

NCS has been chosen to enrich these products: complex metal details and components are produced in Carpi by the expert hands of the company’s team, which since 2003 has been the point of reference in Italy – and not only – in the automotive sector for which the company produces aesthetic and functional prototypes thanks to one of the largest fleets of machines for additive manufacturing in Europe.

NCS and Schedoni share the same passion for their work, the ongoing search for new solutions and materials, the desire to combine tenacity and “know-how” that leads the two companies in the province of Modena to stand out in their sectors: points in common that have created a new and important collaboration.

A prestigious partnership which makes NCS fly all around the world, and which honors Emilia Romagna: land of passion, land of engines, work and dedication to create unique “Made in Italy”, innovative and durable products.


Schedoni & NCS, Together.
Quality as a starting point.
From Modena.

NCS is happy to present you DOSE: the hypercar prototype born from the Fabio Ferrante’s community of design

DOSE, Design Open Source Experiment, is an online scouting community for young designers willing to work in group projects which will pave the way for bigger projects.
The founder of DOSE, Fabio Ferrante commissioned NCS to prototype the DOSE Elytron, the project conceived by the community.

Who is Fabio Ferrante?

Fabio Ferrante is an Italian designer formed in Turin where he started working as Product Designer in 2003. In 2010, after working with high profile brands such as FCA Group, Alfa Romeo and Volkswagen group, he became Chief Designer of Puritalia Automobili, a new Italian automotive company that produces limited edition sports cars.
In 2013 Ferrante moved to New York, where he works with several clients on different Product Design projects.
After winning the 5 International Design Awards Ferrante launched DOSE in 2017.





What is DOSE?

DOSE - Design Open Source Experiment - is an online community where all members can be part of virtual design teams and create transportation design projects from first sketch to prototype. DOSE offers participants the opportunity to broaden their portfolio by sharing ideas and cooperating with a team to bring an idea to a prototype.

Ferrante launches a car design project with the respective guidelines to the community and all members are invited to participate and compete in order to be on a select team.
In each creative area a contest is announced and at the end, the winning idea is evaluated by Fabio Ferrante. The selected team is then supervised by Fabio Ferrante during the development process.

DOSE Elytron

DOSE Elytron is the name of the car design project born from the DOSE community and manufactured through the collaboration of Ferrante and NCS.
The DOSE Elytron is a concept of an electric hypercar. Concept cars such as Pininfarina ModuloCadillac Cyclone or the Norman Timbs Special, had an important influence on this project.


The NCS/Ferrante collaboration is a result of a long standing business relationship (and friendship) between Fabio Ferrante and Marcello Fantuzzi, Technical Director & President of NCS | Newcast.
In October of 2018, Ferrante sent NCS Proto and Style team the specifications of
the project and a model of the Elytron. The team reverse engineered and quickly built and assembled a 1:5 scale prototype. The NCS team worked in record time to complete the project while sharing their progress with Ferrante who in turn posted these updates with his followers on Instagram.


The project’s success came about as a result of the NCS team paying close attention to detail while perfecting every single component of the DOSE Elytron design.

Components are made in selective laser sintering (SLS PA12). The rear extractor is made of carbon fiber as the front splitter, headlights are in watershed, a transparent material similar to real headlights and, last but not least, wheels are made of aluminium.

The most interesting part of the prototype and in great detail are the wheels. Wheels are detached from the body of the prototype and held together thanks to a small dice in the middle. The Proto & Style team also created a key to mount and dismount the wheel.
When all pieces were assembled the Elytron was coated and the 21st of December 2018 the prototype was released.

The DOSE Elytron was very popular and successful on social media as a result of Ferrante’s satisfaction with the final results. NCS is proud of having been a part of this project and in the successful completion of this design masterpiece.

NCS supports STRETTO IN CARENA, the team of the University of Messina at the MOTOSTUDENT 2020

After the collaboration which brought SCIGHERA, the motorcycle designed by the PoliMi Motorcycle Factory, to win the MOTOSTUDENT championship, NCS | Newcast Services is ready to collaborate with another team of students. This team is from the University of Messina and it is called STRETTO IN CARENA, a young and determined team which will participate to the championship in the Petrol category with a petrol engine.

For the first time students will participate to the 6th edition of the MOTOSTUDENT international championship that will take place in Aragon in 2020.
MOTOSTUDENT is a four-day competition which calls to Aragon, Spain, students from universities from all over the world for a real race in which they have the chance to demonstrate their competences starting from the design of a project up to the creation of a prototype.

Marcello Fantuzzi, Techinical Director & President of NCS met the team at the Feltrinelli of Messina and has formalised the collaboration:

“I have the capability to lead you to Aragon. I am here to invest in your future because your future will be my profit and if you believe in what you are doing it will be so.”

The committment of NCS is to help students during the process of design and provide all the materials and means of production they need.
Fantuzzi also encouraged and provided valuable advice on the topic:

“The challenge is to sacrifice yourself and strive for an objective. Your team is very good one but the motorcycle is only one and it must be the best.”

and more

“You don’t have the requirements to go to Aragon, but you accepted the challenge anyway. This is what I saw in you. We will not go there to win but we will go there to join and win for ourselves.”

NCS is ready to collaborate and support the ideas of STRETTO IN CARENA, a team formed by 70 students at their very first experience but with a huge will of put themselves to the test with the big ones.

NCS Lab challenges cold ice and winds of Alaska

Alaska 2019 Ski Walking Winter Expedition is the next expedition of the project Alaska Adventures which will cross Alaska and Canada during the frightful polar winter. Following the roads of Klondike gold rush, the expedition will be partly on skis which will tow a sled on the snow and partly on foot with the sled towed on wheels.

Why a sled?

The choice fell upon a sled both to transport materials and basic supplies but also to emulate the limited possibilities available to pioneers at the end of the nineteenth century and their lonely crossing in 1997.

NCS is sponsor of this project as provider of the hull and also of the two sleds laminated in carbon fiber designed by students of the Department of Material Science and Industrial Engineering of the University of Trento.

Tomorrow, December 6th 2018 Marcello Fantuzzi – Technical Director & President and Andrea Vecchi – Laboratory Manager will take part at the official presentation of the project:



The challenge will be 1300 km long for approximately 50 days facing cold, thin ice, temperature variations and....grizzly bears!

NCSTeam wishes Maurizio Belli and Fulvio Giovannini good luck for the adventure! 

NCS presents “Arthroscopic Transosseous Rotator Cuff Repair”, the first monograph about transosseous

Tomorrow “Arthroscopic Transosseous Rotator Cuff Repair Tips and tricks” will be presented at the ICOT Institute (Surgery, Orthopaedy, Traumatology Institute) in Latina. Matteo Mantovani, CEO of NCS will talk about the arthroscopic surgical technique with the NCS Lab | Medical Devices Taylor Stitcher and about how this procedure improves the process of reconstruction of the rotator cuff. The procedure with Taylor Stitcher also guarantees several benefits for patients but also minimizes costs for operating rooms:

 “This book covers all aspect of the transosseous approach, starting from foundation of biological science and progressing through postoperative rehabilitation. Along the way, the chapters discuss biomechanical factors and technologies in the marketplace, tracing the evolution over time, proposing solution and offering a view on the future. All of the material is supported by an impressive reference collection, which provides infinite possibilities to deepen one’s knowledge on the subject”

At the presentation, along with Matteo Mantovani, there will also be other authors:

  • Claudio Chillemi – Author – Orthopaedic Aid at ICOT
  • Alessandro Castagna – Author – Director of the Shoulder Operational Unit at the Humanitas Institute, Milan
  • Marcello Osimani – Author – Radiology Operational Unit Polo Pontino
