We were asked to manufacture a food safe marking tool for a well-known Scottish Fudge Maker. Measuring around 300mm in length, this piece would make up part of a machine within our client’s factory that accurately marks the top of freshly made Fudge, before being hand cut by their team.
We chose the HP Multi Jet Fusion 4200 to print this tool, due to the durable and smooth finish achievable on this machine which would help the next stage of the process, Nickel plating.
The tool needed to be plated with a food-safe metal, that could be sanitised and would not contaminate the food it would contact. Nickel is the ideal metal for this as it can be cleaned and sanitised, is durable and light weight.
