Freeformer has larger build chamber

Oct. 28, 2022
Arburg's latest 3D printer is suitable for the rapid production of large components or multiple parts at once.

Freeformer Arburg’s 3D printers use a special plasticizing screw to melt standard resin pellets, then apply tiny plastic droplets layer by layer to produce parts directly from 3D CAD data. The machines are appropriate for small volumes and the customization of parts, and can be used in clean rooms.  

What’s new? The Freeformer 750-3X, making its debut at Formnext. The new Freeformer model features optimized melt pressure generators for dosing and injecting, with three discharge units positioned near each other to improve air flow and circulation, and maintain temperature stability.  

Benefits The capability to make bigger parts. While it has the same outside dimensions as the Freeformer 300-3X, the new Freeformer 750-3X has a build chamber around 2.5 times larger (about 13 inches by 9.1 inches by 9.1 inches), making it particularly suitable for the rapid production of large components or multiple parts at once. In addition to other enhancements, the new model has advanced software features that allow for faster printing.
