Create precise, high quality moulds for your goods

Create Sustainable packaging to fit your product

Overview

Traditionally, moulded pulp paper packaging tools are made using metal machining practices. These metal tools are designed to look like a mirror image of the finished good and have holes drilled into them and a screen attached to avoid the pulp from clogging.

Design and manufacturing of these parts can typically cost upwards of $30,000, with some projects costing in the hundreds of thousands depending on the size, number and complexity of the moulds being designed. These traditional moulds can take months to complete and cannot be altered if changes need to be made.

3D printing, however, provides an alternative method for producing the required moulds. Using the latest technologies, our team can dramatically reduce costs, improve lead time and improve the appearance of your paper pulp product.

3D printing creates moulds layer by layer with extreme precision. These moulds are significantly cheaper than traditional methods and do not require the manual forming of screens. Additionally, as our technologies have advanced, moulds can be created with significantly less lead times and offer great design flexibility.
