Highlights of this video

  • Custom potato shapes using 3D printed moulds (1:05)
  • 3D Printed machine piston composed of a single moving part (1:24)
    • Made of a single piece
    • No fasteners needed = no risk of components coming loose and falling into the machine
    • Food sanitation problems solved
    • Part is much stronger than the traditional part with assemble components
  • Machine piston comparison to traditional machining:
    • 250 hours @ 10 hours per day = 25 days per set on CNC (1:38)
    •  3D Printed equivalent (with above advantages) = 90 hours straight time (no machine minders needed) = under 4 days per set (1:49)
  • Sensor housing (2:09)
  • CNC Production Part vs 3D Printed Production Part (2:49)
  • CNC part cost R 6,530
  • 3D Printed part cost R 652
