3D Systems has previewed its CocoJet machine for 3D printing chocolate at this week’s CES show in Las Vegas.
The CocoJet, developed in collaboration with the Hershey Company, prints in dark, milk and white chocolate.
“Our partnership with Hershey, the largest producer of quality chocolate in North America and a global leader in chocolate and confections, allows us to create unique, exciting and personalized edible experiences,” said Chuck Hull, co-founder of 3DS.
“Our preview of CocoJet at CES showcases the power – and possibilities – of 3D printing, and it extends our experience and innovation in culinary 3D printing.”
The additive manufacturing company, which entered "culinary 3D printing" when it acquired The Sugar Lab in 2013, announced a partnership with Hershey early last year.
It describes the machine it presented at last year’s CES, the ChefJet Pro series of printers, as “the most advanced 3D chocolate printer in operation.” The ChefJet Pro is expected to be available in the year’s second half, according to 3DPrint.com
