Additive manufacturing

ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (APF) and the freeformer

Industrial additive manufacturing. This is the process of manufacturing components in premium quality and stability from a wide range of original substances, material combinations and colour combinations. The highly flexible production process is easy and intuitive to access and can be configured to meet specific requirements.
Both the production of individual parts and low volumes from qualified standard granulates and the customisation of mass-produced articles can be handled with ease. Even production in clean room environments is possible. By combining fundamental research with continuous technical advances, we are able to offer you both extensive know-how and practical technology to enable you to take your first steps into additive manufacturing with ease.

The APF process

The APF process

We developed the ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (APF) process and the freeformer very specifically as an open system. The manufacturing process can be custom configured to meet individual requirements by adjusting slicing, droplet size and process control to influence the layer-by-layer build process. 更多...
