freeformer parts

Manufactured on an additive basis

The freeformer uses qualified standard granulates to additively manufacture fully functional parts as one-off items or in small-volume batches. As well as functional integration and multi-component technology, ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (APF) also allows large-volume parts to be individualized.
