3D Printing Consumer Goods

Enhance Product Customization with Additive Manufacturing

From sneaker soles and kitchen gadgets to skateboards and cell phone cases, customization is key in manufacturing and 3D printing consumer goods. While traditional injection molding remains king for mass production purposes, additive manufacturing is gaining traction for lower-volume applications, quickly and cost-effectively creating the prototypes, molds and even some end-use parts for short runs, special events and seasonal products. The Essentium HSE 180 3D Printing Platform gives engineers the opportunity to capitalize on the latest trends with unmatched freedom of design and speed to market. It has the power to keep pace with traditional manufacturing methods, but allows for the flexibility to create multiple iterations without impacting quality, strength or performance.
