Albéa and Erpro 3D Factory join forces to drive innovation in cosmetics with industry-leading HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology
Albéa will launch the first products very soon
Albéa takes a new step in the development of 3D cosmetic packaging solutions two years after integrating 3D printing technology into its services through a commercial partnership with the start-up Erpro 3D Factory.
The company is currently developing applications based on advanced HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology combined with Erpro’s know-how in cosmetics production.
As a result, the first generation of cosmetic parts, designed and produced to take advantage of the advanced capabilities of the HP platform, are in the late stages of development. Albéa will launch the first products very soon.
“Leveraging the expertise of HP and Erpro allows us to take cosmetic 3D printing to the next level, the finesse of detail that HP technology is able to provide is genuinely astonishing,” says Yann Crapet, Chief 3D project of Albéa.
“In doing so, we will provide our customers with quick-to-market solutions coupled with unprecedented custom design, in large and small quantities. “
In the initial phase of this joint effort, Albéa, Erpro and HP Inc worked closely to design and produce applications that meet regulatory standards for the cosmetic industry while offering unmatched levels of quality, cost and reliability. .
In addition, the design benefits were central to the development process, delivering extreme detail and mass customization.
“As we’ve seen in consumer goods and other markets such as automotive and healthcare, mass production of 3D printed applications has the potential to truly disrupt industries,” said Virginia Palacios. , responsible for the management of Multi Jet Fusion solutions, HP personalization and 3D. Impression.
“This breakthrough work with Albéa and Erpro opens up incredible prospects for major cosmetic brands around the world. The advanced capabilities enabled by Multi Jet Fusion enable incredibly detailed design, precision quality and top notch performance for parts such as cosmetic brushes and more. “
As the end user of the machine, Erpro has improved and personalized its manufacturing processes to support the industrial production of small parts designed by Albéa.
3D printing technology continues to evolve rapidly beyond prototyping, providing flexible options for highly customized mass production of final parts and opening up new perspectives for brands and manufacturers, especially in the cosmetics industry. : “Today, this technology opens up many manufacturing applications, with unprecedented precision. and reliability ”, explains Quentin Bertucchi, R&D Process Engineer at Erpro Group.
“We are now able to produce even larger quantities in a shorter time. Advancing the industrialization of 3D printing with HP and Albéa and exploring all the possibilities of this technology is an exciting experience ”, adds Cyrille Vue, CEO of Erpro.
