ARBURG at rapid+tct 2023

rapid+tct, the largest US trade fair in the field of 3D printing, will be held in Chicago from 2 to 4 May 2023. A highlight on ARBURG's stand 3812 (West Hall) will be the freeformer 750-3X, which is making its North American debut.

North American premiere for the freeformer 750-3X

The freeformer 750-3X celebrates its premiere in North America. This largest industrial 3D printer from ARBURG has a build chamber of 750 square centimetres, around 2.5 times larger than the freeformer 300-3X – with the same external dimensions. This enables it to produce larger functional components or to additively manufacture small batches industrially. At rapid+tct, a freeformer 750-3X will be demonstrating a typical automotive application. The exhibit will make a seal out of soft TPU with the help of support material. The component is used for car windows.

3D printing for aerospace and medical technology

A second freeformer exhibit of size 300-3X will produce components for aerospace at the fair. This machine in high-temperature design allows the build chamber to be heated to up to 200 degrees Celsius. The exhibit will process Ultem 9085, an original high-temperature plastic approved for aerospace applications, into air duct prototypes for aircraft cabins. Arburg will also be presenting a number of component examples on its stand, including those made of TPE, PP and multi-material designs, as well as the possibility of finishing and polishing in subsequent machining processes.

3D printers from innovatiQ round off product portfolio

With the innovatiQ exhibits TiQ 2, TiQ 5 and LiQ 5, which will be producing a vacuum gripper made of fibre-reinforced filament, a holder made of PC and a tyre model made of LSR live at rapid+tct, ARBURGadditive's entire product portfolio will be on show this year.
