International Engineering Fair

ARBURG: Gold medal for the Freeformer device


ARBURG celebrated success with a device for the production of functional plastic parts using a new patented technology AKF / APF at the International Engineering Fair in Brno. The Freeformer device had its Czech premiere in Brno, where it won the gold medal in the Best Innovative Exhibit category.

The Freeformer device is intended for the production of plastic parts, which are produced due to the revolutionary injection principle without using a mould. In doing so, the products retain nearly identical mechanical, chemical and electrical properties, which traditionally manufactured parts have.

"Freeformer is a very similar device like as 3D printers, but differs in using standard pellets and can even produce two component parts, i.e. combining soft and hard plastic. It is a machine which partially resembles the injection moulding machine, there is a specially modified injection unit that homogenizes the granulate, melts it and the melt is subsequently spotted on a platform where the layers then form the entire part. Unlike the injection moulding machine,  a mould and a closing unit are absent. From our perspective, this is a device that is designed for prototype or small batch production. We would be very pleased if in addition to conventional injection moulding machines there were also our Freeforms standing in press shops to complement their production programme," says Daniel Orel, a representative of Arburg, who also briefly mentioned the ‘medal Monday’.

"We are very pleased with the Gold Medal. We will certainly share this success with both our existing and new customers. Arburg products are usually located in press shops and tool rooms. We expect that our new device will arouse interest from various design and development companies, carmakers and others," said Daniel Orel at the stand in Hall G1.
