freeformer parts

Manufactured on an additive basis

The freeformer uses qualified standard plastics to produce fully functional parts as one-offs or in small batch volumes. As well as functional integration and multi-component technology, ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (APF) also enables large-batch series parts to be individualised.
