Unique Freeformer System
The freeformer can be used to process standard granulates in a flexible way. It does not require any prefabricated materials such as resins, powders or filaments.
The freeformer is designed as an open system. Slice and process parameters are freely programmable and can thus be individually adapted at any time.
The freeformer is equipped with several discharge units as standard. You can use these to produce parts in various material and colour combinations – also as resilient hard/soft combinations.
Automation and more
With the high-quality technology of our freeformer you can manufacture your products with ease in any environment, free from emissions and without active extraction. The larger freeformer 300-3X also offers you more opportunities for industrial applications. For example, the automatic opening and closing of the build chamber door forms the basis for an automated additive manufacturing process. The closed cooling system can also be expanded with a cooling water connection.

Case Studies for Freeformer
The ability to simultaneously print functional parts with rigid and flexible components has historically been a challenge within the Additive Manufacturing (AM) industry. Either the additively produced parts lacked the required strength or engineers were forced to bond hard and soft materials together with obvious concerns related to durability.
A living hinge is a thin flexible hinge (flexure bearing) made from the same material as the two rigid pieces it connects. A living hinge is typically designed to flex more than a million cycles without failure and lasting throughout a product‘s lifetime.
Patient-specific implants from original material being made via additive manufacturing? Believe it or not, this is now a reality – and SAMAPLAST AG is doing the pioneer work. SAMAPLAST AG has a long and successful history of developing healthcare products.
When Mosca approached ARBURG, it quickly became clear that the freeformer was capable of much more than expected. ARBURG‘s Plastic Freeforming (APF) marked the beginning of a new level of innovation with reduced storage requirements and unmanned production if required.
