Custom Push-Plates for Packaging Production Lines

In this application spotlight, learn how leading companies are modernising their Food and Beverage Packaging production lines with 3D printing.

Modern factories need strength and reliability, as well as the ability to retool their machines to quickly adapt to new requirements. Custom push-plates are no exception.

“Engineering, design, production & maintenance teams produce strong, reliable custom push-plates and mounting adapters on-demand using additive manufacturing.”

At a glance:

  • Produce new parts on demand using industry grade composite Onyx

  • Rapidly adapt to changing requirements

  • Reduce the need to procure and store parts: 3D print materials function as universal spares

  • Produce only what you need, instead of investing in costly and wasteful one-off tooling

  • Produce in hours instead of weeks vs conventional part production

  • Production line downtime significantly reduced

  • Independence from external suppliers
