Allied Glass Containers invests in a new 3D printing

Allied Glass Containers has become the UK’s first glass packaging firm to offer customers 3D printing as part of its design service so they can create a bottle from scratch in just hours.

Allied Glass Containers, the luxury glass packaging manufacturer, has recently invested in a new 3D printer and is now offering customers the opportunity to create a bottle from scratch in just hours.
Allied is the first glass packaging company in the UK to make available 3D printing as part of their visionary design service, the technology giving the company’s team of creative designers the ability to go from a flat screen to an actual physical bottle, Steve Glover, Product Design Engineer at Allied Glass says:
“The acquisition of our new 3D printer allows our team to bring our design ideas to life, physical prototypes allowing investigation and interaction with the product, so before a bottle is produced our customers can touch it, feel it, turn it and look inside it. In essence they can react emotionally to it and fully evaluate it.”
