Plastics Processing – At the Arburg booth at Formnext, the company will demonstrate the industrial capabilities of Arburg Plastic Freeforming (APF) with two Freeformers and at four interactive stations.

A Freeformer will process standard, semi-crystalline PP (Moplen) and Armat 12 support material, which are subsequently dissolved in a water bath, to produce cable clips with delicate structures and a click effect in a live additive manufacturing process at the company booth at Formnext.

Arburg says it has achieved a breakthrough in extending the range of materials suitable for industrial additive manufacturing by qualifying standard PP and the new support material Armat 12 and that the trend is going towards even faster and higher-quality production of genuine functional parts.

At four interactive stations at Arburg's booth, visitors will get the opportunity hands-on to "evaluate" the quality of selected parts produced using the APF process. They will have the chance to view over 40 examples of functional components and judge the quality of some twelve items for themselves.

At Formnext, Arburg will be in Hall 3.1, Booth E70.
