Arburg’s Freeformer 200-3X and 300-3X are said to cover a wide range of industrial AM applications. While the Freeformer 200-3X is equipped with two nozzles as standard, the Freeformer 300-3X can process three components to produce complex functional components in resilient hard/soft combinations with support structures. The open system is said to be ideal for medical technology, as it can also be used to economically process biocompatible, resorbable and sterilisable FDA-approved original plastic granulates.

The Freeformer 200-3X is now equipped with the same single-piece nozzle system as its big brother. A comprehensive software update is also available.
