The packaging and the consumer goods sectors enjoy the huge benefits of 3D printing.
Companies working in these fields need lots of prototypes during the long and complex design process before putting a new product on the market.
Previously, those prototypes took a lot of time to be built, due to the use of traditional technologies, passing thought the production, finishing and assembly.
Currently, large companies like Adidas are leaving those old technologies to work with new production systems able to meet a wide range of needs.
Indeed Adidas is using the additive manufacturing, especially the Polyjet technology, to realize sports shoes prototypes. Benefits are exciting.
But why bother using 3D printing?
There are many advantages in using 3D printing.
For example, let’s think about getting finished prototypes in short time , reducing long production and tooling process expected by traditional technologies, or about the lack of molds and equipment, or about the possibility of realizing prototypes with complex geometries. Before there were indeed many geometric limits because of traditional technologies, but now with additive manufacturing is possible to meet the most demanding needs realizing any kind of object.
Unleash the power of imagination
The prototype look and feel must be as close as possible to the designer’s idea. However, with traditional technologies the gap between his idea and the finished prototype is huge. That’s why working with a skilled 3D printing service using ever more performing systems is the key. The J750 printer of the Polyjet technology has been embedded in the production site of Spring srl, and now it’s possible to:
- Realize smooth, detailed and realistic prototypes
- Produce molds and production tooling with an excellent accuracy
- Embed the most wide range of colours and materials in one single model
The skills in using this printer allow to realize highly realistic models also thanks to the excellent colour and shape rendering, in this way designers can test what will be the realistic look and feel of the finished product.
Innovation is the key for the packaging and consumer goods sectors, for that reason it’s important to develop strategic alliances with an highly qualified company.
Spring srl is one of the top players in Additive manufacturing at an European level and is continuously working with the largest companies in these sectors. Spring srl after 20 years of experience in 3D printing is able to help these companies on their path of innovation.
