World premiere at the K 2013

freeformer: additive manufacturing reinvented

We are presenting a world premiere at the K 2013: the unique freeformer and ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (AKF). With this revolutionary development, we have reinvented additive manufacturing. This world premiere can be seen from 16 to 23 October at Stand A13 in Hall 13.

World premiere: start a new era with us
We have expanded our product portfolio to include additive manufacturing, opening the door to completely new possibilities in plastic parts production. With the freeformer, you can now efficiently produce fully functional parts singly or in small-volume batches – very easily from 3D CAD files and without a mold. With our unique freeformer, you can satisfy today’s requirements for variety and individual products. ARBURG Plastic Freeforming ventures far beyond the capabilities offered by 3D printing and other additive processes available today:

  • Because AKF and the freeformer have been developed by a machine manufacturer with plastics expertise
  • Because fully functional components can be produced singly and in small-volume batches from standard granulates
  • Because it enables the production of complex geometries and moving hard/soft combinations with no support structure
  • Because the mobile freeformer is clean, quiet and environmentally friendly in operation
  • Because you get the customary high quality you expect from us, Made in Germany
