PROTOTYPES, CUSTOMER satisfaction, JARS (Containers), THREE-dimensional display systems, DIGITAL printing, and CONTAINER design & construction
The article discusses the method of making existing milk chocolate spread jar more attractive. It states the method involved are standardizing the designs by making market study through observation, taking suggestion from customers, ideation, 3D prototyping, digital print, and new mold validation. It mentions it faced some constraints such as shrink sleeve owing to complex design and maintaining the overall existing volume.
The article offers information on how three-dimensional (3D) printing is advance in plastics manufacturing. Topics discussed include the reduced production costs in 3D printing, the option for making an injection mold in machines, and the use of plastic to replace metal in 3D printing. Also mentioned are benefits of 3D printing in prototyping.
