Exceptional R&D Expertise

FELIXprinters has exceptional R&D expertise, and we are able to work with our customers to develop tailor-made advanced 3D printing solutions bespoke to specific applications. The company encourages the formation of strategic partnerships with clients and other technology suppliers to further advance innovations in 3D printing.

While many of the tailor-made solutions we have developed are for confidential customer projects, we are able to give some details of two projects that we are currently involved with in the area of food printing and bio printing.

Customers are invited to discuss any tailor-made solutions that they feel would benefit their projects with our team of expert 3D printing innovators.

3D Bio Printers

In the field of 3D bio printers, FELIXprinters is participating in an EU subsidized project called “training4crm”. The goal of this project is to create an array of stemcells that can be manipulated to any cell. The initial goal is to find a cure for Parkinsons disease by replacing braincells, but ultimately the same technology can be used to cure or replace any cell type.

The consortium consists of 10 individual parties, 7 of which are universities and 3 commercial companies of which FELIXprinters is one. Our objective is to supply 3D printing technology to create these cell arrays, create an extruder which is able to print biofluid, and create a hybrid printer that can print two materials at once.

The project is fully funded by the EU.

Food Industry

The open design of the FELIX 3 and FELIX Tec series gives great freedom when it comes to experimenting with the printing of food. The use of a 3D printer in such applications leads to the production of novel shapes which can not be carried out by conventional food processing technologies. It is also used for the production of small batches, and customised products.

FELIXprinters has created a fully automated food printing series of machines, for an international client. The client wanted to be able to produce very detailed and unconventional objects with an edible dessert paste. Traditional moulding and other techniques could not deliver the unique results they required. That is why they opted for 3D printing. FELIXprinters' capability to produce an entire automated module is allowing this client to produce their intricate products for the world to enjoy.

In addition, for another customer we are currently working on an extruder which will be able to print any kind of food in paste form. Regarding food applications.

We would be delighted to discuss specific applications in this area with any prospective customer that can take advantage of our huge experience and technological savvy.
