Juliane Hehl, Arburg's Managing Partner, was standing next to the Freeformer 300-3X.

Formnext 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany, has been extremely successful for Arburg. The world premiere of the Freeformer 300-3X was one of the main attractions at the trade fair for additive manufacturing (AM).

Freeformer 300-3X for three-component parts

Equipped with three discharge units, the open system can produce complex and resilient functional parts in hard/soft combinations from two qualified standard plastics and a support material for the first time worldwide.

The available surface area of the platform is almost 50% larger than that for the Freeformer 200-3X. Thus, the build chamber has room for larger small-volume batches and parts with dimensions of up to 234 x 134 x 230mm.

By opening the upper half of the two-part build chamber door, it is for example possible to refill the material containers while the machine is in operation. The build chamber, which can be heated to up to 200°C, then only needs to be opened up to insert the part platform, and remove the finished parts.

The automatic opening and closing of the build chamber door and optional interfaces make it possible to automate AM, and to integrate the Freeformer into complete production lines.

"With the world premiere of the Freeformer 300-3X, we have really hit the mark. Apparently, such a three-component machine, enabling complete new applications for industrial additive manufacturing, is just what the experts have been waiting for. The response has been excellent," commented Juliane Hehl, Arburg's Managing Partner.

New rental model: getting started in AM

The Arburg stand was a major attraction at the Formnext 2018.A new offer for getting started in AM sparked great interest. Since Formnext 2018, Arburg has been offering a new rental model for its Freeformer 200-3X.

With this "All-in Package“, the customer benefits from the extensive Arburg know-how and low investments. The package includes the rental of a Freeformer 200-3X for twelve months at interesting conditions, the production of a bench mark part, extensive application technology support by Arburg and access to the company's material database.

The customer can use qualified Arburg material for its product portfolio, to manufacture, for example, functional parts, but also grippers or a mounting device for its own production. The offer also includes training courses at Arburg and individual in-house training on the customer's premises.

In addition to that, upon request, the renter can request ten man-days of an APF expert. After one year, the customer himself will decide whether and how to continue. The rental fee will be taken into account in the purchase price.

Diversity of functional parts manufactured by AM

Moreover, at four interactive stations, Arburg showed a selection of functional parts made from original materials as used, for example, in medical technology, aerospace or automotive industry.

This included a hand model made conductive by carbon nanotubes and equipped with capacitive sensors. The visitors were able to use them, for example, for illuminating LEDs.
