L’Oréal turned to HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology to quickly respond to shifts in its manufacturing processes and production lines, and the two companies worked together to quickly design and scale up large volumes of adjustable ‘pucks’, used in filling, labelling and packaging their products. The result was a 33% cost reduction, also thanks to the minimization of additional tools, and 66% time savings. All of this, while taking into account sustainability and carbon footprint.
HP has been collaborating with L’Oréal to increase production flexibility and create innovative new packaging and customer experiences: the company is well known to focus a lot on sustainability, and not just in terms of reusable / recyclable packaging. Another aspect they look at is an energy efficient and low carbon footprint production processes, a field where 3D printing parts with HP MJF comes in aid.
By using HP’s Digital Manufacturing Network (DMN) they managed to obtain a significant gain in terms of lowered carbon footprint, deriving from logistic operations. HP’s DMN is a team of members positioned all over the world: certified manufacturers that can produce the same components with the same capabilities all over the world, cutting out on all the delivery costs for the environment, by 3D Printing parts at location, on demand.
