Alpa, a Swiss producer of high-end cameras, is constantly enlarging its product assortment including towards medium- and large-format videos. Moving images are in demand, not only for online advertising but also for screens, which are increasingly replacing wall posters.
Alpa’s system combines photos and videos in association with Product Development Group Zurich headed by Prof. Mirko Meboldt. By means of additive manufacturing and 3D printing, the partners make prototypes and camera components for end-users easily, quickly and economically. Feedback from the user communities is systematically and promptly factored into product tweaking. AM technology makes it possible to create cost-efficient product designs in small series or as single units. This gives Alpa an advantage with respect to its highly competitive Asian rivals.
