Industrial additive manufacturing with the freeformer

A freeformer 200-3X for industrial additive manufacturing as well as various functional components made from only recently qualified materials will be presented at Chinaplas 2019. In addition, ARBURG’s portfolio includes the new freeformer 300-3X – a large, three-component machine that can produce complex and resilient functional components in hard/soft combinations, made from two plastic components plus support material.

The open ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (APF) system offers great freedom in terms of materials. Users can process their own original materials and optimise droplet size as well as process control themselves. The process is based on qualified plastics in the form of inexpensive granulates, which are also used in injection moulding.
