The Mass Portal printer is encouraging new product development. So far, the business has created several new molds for biscuit dough, which are being tested on the equipment, that are much more efficient and easier to sustain than copper molds, which after a period of time become oxidized and difficult to maintain. The molds created with the Mass Portal printer cost almost 30 times less than the molds ordered from the manufacturers, which also isn’t the easiest job, as most of the manufacturers don’t want to produce these molds, or even can’t, as it is very complicated. Pavels Laizans tells us, that
‘’The molds are required in non-standard designs and only few duplicates, therefore it is a very expensive and time-consuming process, as you have to consult and discuss the molds with engineers, wasting a lot of time, as we can do it much faster and create a larger variety of designs, allowing us as a business to grow much quicker.’’.
