Product life cycles are getting shorter and shorter. Personalized food is the big trend.
The challenge is to create a new product that’s even more attractive than the last… and to do it in no time.
The deployment of FoodJet printing systems in the food industry can be considered as Rapid Prototyping’s first steps into the field of mass production. Now it is possible to digitally print edible high-viscosity patterns of liquid foodstuff, using a system that can generate 2D shapes from a digital source at an incredible production speed.
Using drop-on-demand technology, thick liquids as chocolate, ketchup, icing, sauce, butter, gelly or dough can be printed in any pattern without using moulds or templates.
Allthough this is not 3D printing it shows new trends in digital food printing.
