Successful formnext 2022

Innovations inspire the trade

The freeformer 750-3X and the innovatiQ printer TiQ2 literally took centre stage at the the ARBURG stand at formnext 2022. laced on a rotating platform, the two innovations wowed trade visitors. There was also a great deal of interest in the processing of high-temperature materials and soft materials.

Strong trade fair presence
"Our presence at the trade fair was an impressive demonstration of the strength of ARBURGadditive and the potential of our machines," said Dr Victor Roman, Managing Director of ARBURGadditive. "Our stand was very busy every day and we were also able to forge a lot of new links with companies on the lookout for new solutions in the field of additive manufacturing," added a delighted Dr Victor Roman. Arburg's many examples of components, including a wide variety of success stories from customers such as Tesa and Wilson, were a great source of ideas and inspiration here.

New freeformer 750-3X
ARBURG presented its new freeformer 750-3X at the trade show. Compared to the previous model, this new machine's part carrier is around 2.5 times larger – with the same external dimensions – and the process is faster and more economical. In addition, the GESTICA control system has been optimised for additive manufacturing in terms of process stability, part quality and build time.

freeformer 200-3X "soft"
When it comes to processing soft materials, Arburg used a large number of parts to demonstrate that a very wide range of shore hardnesses can be achieved with the Arburg Plastic Freeforming (APF). Specifically for this sector, there is currently a limited sales promotion with the freeformer 200-3X "soft".
This machine has special equipment for processing soft materials and is also very attractively priced.

APF components made of high-temperature materials
Another focus was the processing of high-temperature materials. A suitably equipped freeformer 300-3X was exhibited for this purpose, as well as part of an aircraft cabin with various APF parts made of Ultem 9085, which is approved for aerospace applications. These re-worked lighting and ventilation components and the cup holder made it clear that the freeformer can be used both to produce spare parts and to implement customised design requirements.
