Innovation in online manufacturing has revolutionised the production cycles for many sectors: the food sector has proved to be among the most advanced in this regard.
Push the accelerator in terms of design
Online manufacturing, especially 3D printing, have made it possible to quickly produce functional prototypes of their projects, being able to verify hypotheses of operation and quickly make design iterations. Statistically, additive manufacturing has sped up the design of a new product by 2.5 times.
Small and Medium Issues
Flexibility to produce only what you need
Online manufacturing, compared to traditional technologies, means it is possible to reduce the number of copies to manage the design breakeven: this means it is convenient to launch a production for even a few hundred copies, without having to bear fixed start-up costs.
Materials used in the food industry
Innovation in the food sector
The move to more flexible production processes has revolutionized the way many companies handle design, strategic and commercial aspects of production. Many aspects that once took months, today can be obtained in days or faster. Professionals most aware of innovation are in fact totally rethinking the production and operation mechanisms within their company.
New possibilities made available by technology
Additive manufacturing, but above all the revolutionary Multi Jet Fusion technology, have been real earthquakes in global production aspects. Today there are possibilities that up to yesterday were impracticable due to cost, efficiency or time issues. With these new technologies, today we can think of producing exactly what we need and how we need it: the possibility of creating repair parts or spare parts, but also the possibility of starting the production of customised parts, not having to incur start-up costs. There is also the advantage of not having to meet as many design constraints, being able to create complex geometries, concatenated objects and multipart objects
