At the exhibition, Dubai-based D2M Solutions, a leading technology supplier to the Middle East industrial sector, will put the spotlight on 3D virtual design, 3D scanning and 3D printing. The company experts will take the visitors through all the stages of developing new packaging, from the 3D virtual design concept, or reverse engineering of an existing packaging product for the development of packaging molds or new packaging products, to 3D printing of prototype packaging, or prototype packaging molds.
Also a Stratasys Platinum Partner, D2M Solutions specialises in guiding industrial companies in eliminating problem areas from the product development process, and in providing cutting-edge 3D technologies to tackle efficient design, whilst minimising errors and waste. At the exhibition, D2M will showcase some of the best-in-class technologies available in the market, including 3Dexperience software for excellence in rapid product design from Dassault Systèmes, 3D scanners from Creaform, and 3D printers from Stratasys.
Besides several big names in the MENA region, such as, Emirates Trans Graphics, Giffin Graphics and Xerox, other leading industry manufacturers and suppliers, including Heidelberg, Kodak, AFRA, Bobst, Green Graphics Trading GMCC, Nilpeter and Prestige Graphics Trading will be exhibiting at the show.
“The 3D feature area is a valuable addition to the Gulf Print & Pack this year. 3D printing is already used for blow molding, thermoforming and vacuum forming, particularly for prototype packaging molds. In addition, this advanced technology is being utilised for short-run products and product trial approvals, as it can produce packaging on demand,” said Mike Simmonds, event manager, Gulf Print & Pack.
