Injection molding company Arburg plans to display turnkey system built around two of its machines, a hydraulic Allrounder 370 S and a Freeformer 200-3X for industrial additive manufacturing (AM) at the MECSPE trade fair, held 28 to 30 March 2019 in Parma, Italy.

The turnkey system is built around a hydraulic Allrounder 370 S with 700 kN of clamping force and a size 170 injection unit. The production cell is networked with the Arburg ALS host computer system and, in a cycle time of 35 seconds, produces ready-to-use inspection mirrors in a hard/soft combination for injection molds. Arburg says that its Freeformer offers material freedom for the AM of prototypes, functional components and individualised high-volume parts and is therefore referred to as an open system.
