As I mentioned before, the 3D chewing gum printing has been one of the most interesting presentations of last ISM. Please, check the different links that are included in this post, as they will take you to really exciting information!

The company who developed it, WACKER, had the printer in their stand and generated a great exposure in the media for this. We all could see how a gum was “printed” in front of us. Of course the concept is only a prototype now, with no industrial application. But for sure there will be more and more development on this field.

The company KATJES already showed a 3D printed candy last ISM (2016) and this year they had long queues of people waiting in front of their stand to have the pictures of their faces transferred by the software of the Magic Candy Factory to a 3D print of them. They are planning to install such type of 3D-candy printers in amusement parks and other events.

Another proof that the 3D era is coming, is that the German confectionery school (ZDS) has introduced this year for the first time a specific seminar: “International ZDS Congress for Additive Manufacturing and 3D-Food Printing for the Confectionery and Snack Industry”. This will take place in their premises in Solingen on 19-20th September.
