Calibration tools for the food industry

The Food Industry is an area in which 3D printing can assist in the development process. In terms of getting produce from one side of the factory to the other, most food processing factories use conveyor belts.

Through our various materials such as plastic, resin, and our multicolor material you can 3D print calibration tools (3D printed items which have the same weight and size as an average apple or potato) for processed foods. This will allow you to move the faux produce along the conveyor belt to calibrate for speed or other criteria. This will prevent you from damaging your inventory of fresh ingredients in the testing process. Thanks to the strength of plastic and resin you can use your calibration tools for various tests without using fresh foods.

3D printing of food replicas is a valuable asset in terms of calibrating your food processing machinery. If you produce food, you can 3D print plastic fruits and/or vegetables (and other types of food) several times to test your equipment without having to deal with damaging your real fruits and vegetables. Getting food prepared has never been so easy!


Equipment for the food industry

The benefits of 3D printing are numerous. For instance, you can now 3D print complex designs that are essential for machinery in the food industry. Thanks to 3D printing, you can create complex 3D printed food instruments that are essential for the proper operation of machinery for food production.

3D printing will allow you to create complex mechanical parts that are required to be strong and durable. You can create equipment for the food industry and get products with complex geometry at low cost.

Creating an item using 3D printing technology is more cost-effective because it doesn’t matter how complex the design is, the cost is based on how much material is used. You are able to create highly detailed 3D prints that you can use to make molds for different types of food like chocolates, hard candy, ice cream, or cakes. Thus, the impact of 3D printing in the food supply chain can be quite important.

Optimize your current food production processes now!

Prototyping for tooling in the food industry

With 3D printing, you can create an infinite number of life-size parts in order to find the right one for a low price. 

Thanks to 3D printing you can create ornamental prototypes, starting from construction drawings, as well as mechanical parts, and you can do all of this to learn what improvements can be achieved, and quickly receive your final product. It will help you build the best consumer product and food item, thanks to an optimized product design process.

3D printing allows you to create many parts in the research and development phase to validate the mechanical concepts, as well as the design and layout of your product. In just a few clicks you can create a customized print and receive it in your hands before you know it. This will truly help you build the future of food innovations.

They 3D print with us

Artisans, creators, industries? … they picked 3D printing online.
Sculpteo and his 3D printing service allowed me to create prototypes to validate mechanical concepts for my project.
3D printing has allowed me to create fingerprints for making molds for my chocolates bearing the image of the Church of Saint-Tropez.
Thanks for the beautiful models that you [Sculpteo] have produced for us, we will order from you again.
