Puxi 1 is a “deployable” semi-trailer type truck. The equipment inside it is used to demonstrate and teach the four plastics processing technologies:
ARBURG hybrid injection moulding machine
MATEX VARESE extrusion line
RAISE 3D printer
And a “Matériautech” area: presentation of Gems®, material samples to learn about the composition of polymers and their sector of application.
Puxi 1 is also a digital experience.
Puxi is also the name of an interactive and recreational digital innovation system inside the truck which is used to learn about the world of plastics and composites in a different way.
Equipped with a tablet and a headset, you can immerse yourself in this world of plastics processing and composites:
Digitalisation of industrial processes: discovering what goes on inside machines
Design of a phone case in augmented reality
Injection of the Puxi mascot by 3D simulation with possibility of adjusting the settings
Video presenting eco-design, sustainable development, etc
JEUNESSE BOOSTER PROJECT
This project is being conducted to “boost” the integration of new generations in the French industrial ecosystem by familiarising them with industrial product design methods: brainstorming, design thinking, “user push”, etc.
To give them an opportunity, under the guidance of the start-up Athletics 3D, to invent a 3D laser rifle butt with a futuristic design and have it manufactured and tested during the exhibition. The specifications of the equipment were provided by the top-level biathlete Emilien Jacquelin. Three designs have been conceived, prototyped, designed and tested with end users in the space of seven months.
We invite all amateur or professional shooters to come and admire and test the result of this work.
You will also be able to use these laser rifles on real rifle ranges!
