Impressions formnext 2018
The world premiere of the freeformer 300-3X was one of the biggest crowd-pullers at formnext, the world's leading trade fair for additive manufacturing. The new machine was presented hourly in a hosted show featuring live music. The visitors were highly impressed by the new large three-component machine, which enables industrial additive manufacturing of complex functional parts in resilient hard/soft combinations with support structures as a world first.
Not only the new freeformer 300-3X, but also the four interactive stations where numerous parts could be handled, impressed the trade fair visitors. At one of the stations, visitors were able to light up LEDs using a model hand that was rendered conductive with the help of carbon nanotubes and featured capacitive sensors.
