Powderbased 3D food printing technologies – Presented by Martijn Noort, Wageningen Food & Biobased Research at the 3D Food Printing Conference, Jun 28, Brightlands Campus, Villa Flora, Venlo, The Netherlands.
Besides FDM/extrusion printing also powder based techniques such as Powder Bed Printing (PBP) and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) offer potential for food production. Main advantages of powderbased printing are the higher degrees of 3D design freedom and scalability. Furthermore, these techniques offer unique potential to control the local composition as well as the physical state of the food product structure on a voxel base. This presentation gives an overview of the current state of the art of powder based food printing technologies and their added value over conventional food manufacturing.
