In this episode the topic is 3D printed blister tool prototyping and how it can be used to improve cannabis packaging. Benjamin Voelker, the general manager for the packaging machine division of Maruho Hatsujyo Innovations explains how 3D Printed Tool Prototyping produces sample blister cavities nearly identical to final production. This allows cannabis companies to take a more expedient “try before they buy” approach to new or modified packaging platforms. The dramatically reduced cost also provides leeway to test multiple blister formulations to determine which is most suitable for particular cannabis formulations and cannabis-centric items.
