The well-known shoe brand Callaghan, belonging to the Hergar group, has just announced the launch of a new program called personal adaptation. In this, as they have published, they seek to be able to make a revolutionized footwear capable of adapting to each foot in a totally personalized way thanks, above all, to the fact that their soles will be manufactured using 3D printing.
For the manufacture of the soles, in Callaghan they have decided to bet on all the technology that Dynamical tools, Aragonese company specialized in manufacturing 3D printers, has included in its model DT600. Among the most interesting features present in the DT600, for example, it is worth highlighting its ability to work with highly demanding technical materials as well as flexible, an ideal feature for making custom soles for Callaghan shoes.
Callaghan bets on Dynamical Tools 3D printers for the manufacture of his custom shoes.
After many hours of work, design and development, the new hexagon-shaped shoe soles with an air chamber stand out for significantly increasing comfort and improving cushioning thanks to being customized according to the weight of each person. Undoubtedly a very interesting program since, in addition to being able to offer personalized footwear, it will allow the company streamline production y reduce costs associated with it.
According to Callaghan officials, carrying out a project like this has been a huge job. Far from looking at the greats of 3D printing such as Stratasys or HP, they have decided to have Dynamical Tools, a startup founded in 2015 that has just over a dozen employees on its staff. In addition to this, the company has taken into account the closeness and the fact that both Callaghan and Dynamical Tools share the same vision of things.
