A freeformer demonstrates that ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (APF) is not only suitable for prototyping but also for the industrial additive manufacturing of functional components in particular. The exhibit processes qualified standard PP and the water-soluble support material Armat 12 to produce functional cable clips with delicate yet durable structures. Visitors can handle so-called "experience parts" at an interactive station and convince themselves of their functionality and quality.
The open system affords users independence: they can qualify their own original material and optimise the freely programmable process parameters specifically to the relevant application. In addition to amorphous standard granulates such as ABS, PA and PC, the ever-expanding range of materials qualified by ARBURG includes, for example,elastic TPE, medical grade PLLA, PC approved for the aerospace industry and semi-crystalline PP.
