ARBURG at formnext 2023

At formnext 2023 in Frankfurt, Germany, ARBURGadditive will be presenting its complete range of products for industrial additive manufacturing based on granules, filaments and liquid silicone (LSR) at Stand D79 in Hall 12.1. One highlight is the new high-temperature freeformer 750-3X from ARBURGadditive. TiQ and LiQ series 3D printers from innovatiQ will be demonstrating the processing of fibre-reinforced filaments and certified LSR.

freeformers for high-temperature and soft materials

At formnext 2023, the new freeformer 750-3X in high-temperature version will be producing geometrically sophisticated air distributors from original aerospace-certified material Ultem 9085. The temperature of the build chamber can be raised to 200 degrees Celsius, and the granules are plasticised at up to 450 degrees Celsius.

A second freeformer 750-3X will be producing orthopaedic insoles up to shoe size 50. Thanks to the APF process, certain parts of the insole can be individually reinforced and others specifically designed to be soft – either through a multi-material combination of e.g. hard PP and soft TPE or by adjusting the filling density.
The third APF exhibit, a freeformer 200-3X, is specially designed for processing soft materials.

TiQ series for fibre-reinforced filaments

In Frankfurt, a TiQ 2 from innovatiQ will be manufacturing resilient suction pads and mechanical grippers made of fibre-reinforced PA and PP with individualised fingers for picking up components, mounted on robot arms.

Another exhibit, a TiQ 5 "pro", has integrated material drying and active build chamber temperature control. One component highlight is a high-speed water scooter board, 3D-printed from fibre-reinforced filament using this high-performance printer. Its individual parts are laminated to form a functional prototype.
