ARBURG at Rapid.Tech 2024

ARBURGadditive will be among those attending the 20th anniversary of Rapid.Tech in Erfurt from 14 to 16 May 2024 with two exciting exhibits: a large freeformer 750-3X, which works on the basis of plastic granules, and an LiQ 5 for 3D printing liquid silicone (LSR). Visitors will find ARBURGadditives in Hall 2/2-215.

Focus on automotive, aviation and medical technology

The primary areas of focus will be transport, aviation and medical technology, as well as software/AI and design for additive manufacturing and 3D-printed electronics. The LiQ 5 3D printer will be demonstrating LAM (liquid additive manufacturing) technology for processing liquid silicone. This can be used to produce customised orthopaedic accessories and products for the food sector, for example.

freeformer 750-3X

With the large freeformer 750-3X in the high-temperature version, the build chamber can be heated up to 200 degrees Celsius, with plasticising taking place at up to 450 degrees Celsius. This means that geometrically sophisticated ventilation ducts for the aerospace industry can be produced from Ultem 9085, for example. With its large build chamber (max. 330 mm x 230 mm x 230 mm), the freeformer 750-3X also offers the option of additively manufacturing larger functional parts or small batches industrially – such as orthopaedic insoles up to shoe size 50. The possibility of additively manufacturing components from soft materials and high-temperature plastics or in hard/soft combinations is an impressive illustration of the machine’s wide range of applications. Short fibre-reinforced parts made of PA with 25 percent glass fibres and sealing components made of coloured LSR are other innovations that will be presented at Rapid.Tech.
