New advancements in rapid prototyping for the footwear will offer manufacturers at Texprocess, held in Frankfurt, Germany May 4-7, an opportunity to learn how they can ramp up production.
Thanks to developments in rapid prototyping, the production technology is becoming more affordable even to small companies. A recent report from Texprocess said rapid figuring costs less than three Euros (about $3.65) and can reduce extra expenses.
By using rapid figuring, companies can cut down on costs incurred by duplication of work and lack of transparency, which the report said can be “poison” for business and efficiency. The data for a protoype is generated by computer-aided design programs, and offer more sector-specific solutions than relying on several individual departments to relay accurate information.
