Arburg - Victor Roman

German machine manufacturing company Arburg has combined all its Additive Manufacturing activities under one roof. The newly created company, ARBURGadditive GmbH + Co KG, aims to highlight the significance and future potential that it believes additive manufacturing holds as a key supplementary production method in plastic processing.

At the heart of ARBURGadditive GmbH + Co KG, there is the Freeformer as key product portfolio as well as the purchase of innovatiQ that reinforces the range of services Arburg can provide to the AM industries.

The ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (APF) process with the Freeformer, has been designed to act as an open system, making it possible to adjust the component manufacturing process in line with specific requirements. The process uses verified standard granulates of the kind found in injection moulding. The innovatiQ 3D printing systems operate on the basis of FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) technology. Other products include the LiQ 320 printing system, which processes liquid silicone rubber (LSR) in a special LAM (Liquid Additive Manufacturing) procedure.

The various machines work in perfect harmony, enabling them to cover an extensive range of additive applications.

ARBURGadditive GmbH + Co KG will benefit from the leadership of an experienced industry expert. Dr Victor Roman, 52, who brings here two decades in development, sales and additive manufacturing.

Over the course of 2022, ARBURG Plastic Freeforming will switch entirely over to the new company. This division now has around 40 employees working in sales, development, application technology and assembly. innovatiQ GmbH + Co KG, which currently employs approximately 25 staff members, will remain an independent company based in Feldkirchen, near Munich, but will be affiliated with ARBURGadditive GmbH + Co KG. innovatiQ Managing Director Florian Bautz will in future report to Dr Victor Roman.
