With the open freeformer system, you have the process control in your own hands and can specifically adjust and optimise layer separation, droplet size and parameters.
With the freeformer, you can use the same plastic granules as for injection moulding. Use a wide range of certified original materials.
Components made of TPE or in hard/soft combination. Complex geometries or integrated functions. Working in clean rooms. For all this and more, our freeformers are the right solution.
freeformers from ARBURG
With our freeformers and ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (APF), you have an open system that you can use to additively produce functional components from plastic granules.
The TiQ series from innovatiQ is an entry-level solution if you want to manufacture additive components from filament using the fused filament fabrication (FFF) process.
Benefits of freeformers
Up to three discharge units, combination of hard/soft or of materials and colours, support materials for complex geometries
Build chamber in stainless steel, residue-free process, water-soluble support material, no manual finishing work, also designed for work in clean rooms
Use of certified original materials, processing of specific material compounds, constantly growing material database, qualification of own materials, material dryer, optimised software
Easy to understand
Easy to understand
High-end control system with multi-touch screen in industrial PC technology, easy-to-understand, intuitive user interface, automated slicing software
High-performance components: servo motors, integrated material preparation, control cabinet "made by ARBURG"
Areas of application
With freeformers and the APF process, you can additively manufacture medical technology products, even from qualified original materials. With total freedom: biocompatible, sterilisable, implantable and even resorbable.
Mobility and lightweight construction
Production of honeycomb structures and bionically optimised components on freeformers. Flexible functional components made of original soft materials. Not only saves you weight, but costs and time as well. In terms of both material and equipment.
Lead the way. With your additive manufacturing, you are way ahead in lightweight construction. With a high degree of freedom, resource conservation and sustainability. When processing high-strength, high-temperature plastics.
Consumer goods and packaging
Mobile phone covers, flower vases, spectacle frames and shoe soles – manufacture additively personalised products for the consumer goods segment. The benefit for you: a functional component in no time, plus reduced costs in the process.
Multi-material processing, flame protection, function integration, miniaturisation or the combination of various processes. freeformers can meet all these requirements. Even if you want to process electrically conductive materials, this is not a problem.
