International Journal of Materials and Product Technology (IJMPT), Vol. 58, No. 2/3, 2019

Abstract: Additive manufacturing (AM) plays a vital role in the globalised world as it provides innovative technologies to manufacture customised parts with different materials in different volumes. Food and agriculture sector needs extensive customisation towards designing and development of types of equipment. Through this paper, we are proposing an extensive usage of AM in these sectors. AM is capable for designing/production of customised/innovative food items such as coffee, pizza, burger, biscuits, cakes, chocolates and other everyday food items as per the required volume of ingredients, shape and colour. AM brings innovation in the agricultural sector, with its capability to produce customised physical models and making them directly for use onto the farms. It enables testing of obtained design towards flaws/productivity before the actual production of agricultural equipment in the factory. A farmer can be provided ergonomically useful and customised agricultural equipment as per the need of shape, size and design.
