Seminar: International Congress for Additive Manufacturing and 3D-Food Printing for the Confectionery and Snack Industry // ZDS - Die Süßwaren-Akademie

International Congress for Additive Manufacturing and 3D-Food Printing for the Confectionery and Snack Industry CIS-723

The "INNOFORUM SWEETS & SNACKS" is a new, annual congress series that is organized by the ZDS. It deals with the most innovative products, technologies and processes for the confectionary and snack sector. On 19th and 20th of September we start this series with GERMANY'S FIRST CONGRESS ABOUT 3D PRINTING AND ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING FOR THE CONFECTIONERY AND SNACK INDUSTRY!

Not many topics are currently as much discussed as "3D printing" or "additive manufacturing". Thus this congress presents the possibilities and potentials of this new technology for the confectionery and snack sector. We are very glad that so many high class speakers from all over the world confirmed their lectures. This offers the great opportunity to the participants to receive first hand information from proven experts and to discuss individual topics personally during the congress breaks and during the congress dinner.

On the first congress day, experts from science and industry give an elaborated overview about the potentials of additive manufacturing for the confectionery machine construction as well as for product development of confectionery and snacks. Application areas of this new technology are presented as well as the different printing techniques and materials. Of course, the economic efficiency of the methods will also be in focus. Besides the topic "prototyping", also serial production of parts is dealt with. Thus the participants get profound theoretical information with various application examples.
Therefore the first day is a "must" for machine construction companies and product developers in the confectionery and snack branche.

On the second day of the event, the potentials of 3D food printing for customized products and future serial production will be presented. Renowned food printing experts from all over the world give a detailed overview on the current status of development, application areas, printing materials and methods like extrusion and powder bed printing, and provide an outlook for this still young technology for the future.

A special highlight of the congress are the various live demonstrations of 3D food printing as well as of additive manufacturing of prototypes during the congress breaks!
