Bioprinting Korean Food, Minifactory, and RV’s are featured in the latest 3D Printing News.


A New Era of 3D Printed Food: Combining Tradition with Innovation###

In an unexpected collaboration, giant Korean food company CJ Foods recently signed a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) with T&R Biofab, a bioprinting firm, to explore the world of 3D printed food. This partnership brings together the expertise of a leading distributor and brand owner with cutting-edge bioprinting technology. The primary goal of this venture is to create plant-based alternatives to meat that not only mimic the texture and mouthfeel of the real thing but surpass it.

CJ Foods, known for its popular brands such as Bibigo, has identified a unique opportunity in 3D printed food. While many envision the ability to print steaks and other meat options, the company believes that there is potential in revolutionizing traditional dishes such as mandu, or meat dumplings, through this innovative technology.

Taking a closer look at the 3D printing landscape, Finnish high-temperature 3D printer manufacturer Minifactory has made a significant breakthrough. Its latest creation boasts a 600 x 400 x 400 mm build volume and a heated chamber capable of reaching temperatures of up to 200℃. With dual extruders operating at a scorching 480°C, this 3D printer is perfectly optimized to bring intricate designs to life. The addition of optimized airflow ensures superior performance, making it an impressive development in the realm of 3D printing.

This exciting news comes hot on the heels of my previous exploration into the world of 3D printed trailers and Speciality Vehicles. Delving deep into the applications of 3D printing, I discovered the progress being made in this field thanks to Manitoba, Canada based Icon Technologies Limited, a leading RV components manufacturer. Icon Technologies has recently invested in a 3D Systems pellet printer, specifically designed to create molds using GF polycarbonate. By leveraging this innovative technology, the company hopes to drastically reduce lead times and mold costs. With their 3D printed molds already surpassing a staggering 1000 shots, the results speak for themselves.

Curious about the latest breakthroughs in the 3D printing industry and eager to stay ahead of the curve? Don’t miss out on the opportunity to receive updates, news, and exclusive offers from third-party vendors. By remaining informed, you can embark on a fascinating journey exploring the endless possibilities of this rapidly evolving technology.

In conclusion, the partnership between CJ Foods and T&R Biofab marks a new era in the world of 3D printed food. By combining tradition with innovation, these companies aim to create plant-based alternatives to meat that are indistinguishable from the real thing in terms of texture and taste. With Minifactory’s groundbreaking 3D printer and Icon Technologies’ successful utilization of 3D printed molds, the stage is set for a revolution in the way we produce and consume food. Stay informed, stay curious, and be prepared to witness the unimaginable as the 3D printing industry continues to push the boundaries of what is possible.
