Abstract

With continuing growth in the personalised high value product manufacturing sector, there is a need to provide new ways to store and transport high value parts economically in small batches/batches of one without damage and contamination, providing complete environment buffering. Current methods have an inability to design and generate on demand-individualised packaging as individual unique moulds are required. This paper provides a new approach to packaging individualised components and artefacts through combining a scanning methodology, and computational design methods to generate cryogenically machined packaging solutions using a computer aided design and manufacturing system. A prototype is used to demonstrate the proposed method and is validated by two example case studies consisting of a high value component and a representative artefact example.
