Steakholder Foods develops temperature-controlled print bed system for its 3D bio-printer

Steakholder Foods, the food company previously known as MeaTech 3D, has developed a temperature-controlled print bed for its industrial-scale food 3D printer. This is another important step in the company’s journey towards mass production of cultured meat using 3D printing technology.

Temperature control is a critical requirement when printing a cultivated product containing live cells. Maintaining optimal temperature poses a challenge in the architecture of Steakholder Foods’ industrial printers, so the development of temperature-controlled print beds is a major milestone on the path to production at scale. Contactless electromagnetic power is delivered to the print bed which is connected to a wireless communication module that monitors and controls its temperature.

Arik Kaufman, CEO of Steakholder Foods: “We are proud to have reached this important milestone with our technology. It is a critical step toward producing structured cultivated meat at scale.”

Steakholder Foods Ltd., formerly MeaTech 3D Ltd., is an international deep-tech food company at the forefront of the cultured meat revolution. The company initiated activities in 2019 and is listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the ticker “STKH” (formerly MITC). Steakholder Foods maintains facilities in Rehovot, Israel and Antwerp, Belgium and has recently expanded activities to the US.

The company is developing a slaughter-free solution for producing a variety of beef, chicken, pork, and seafood products — both as raw materials and whole cuts — as an alternative to industrialized farming and fishing. With its membership in the UN Global Compact, Steakholder Foods is committed to act in support of issues embodied in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which include strengthening food security, decreasing carbon footprint, and conserving water and land resources.
