Formnext Preview: Verashape, Arburg, AMFG, Wondercutter, CoreTechnologie, Henkel (Part 1)

One day to go, and Formnext, the most expected event of the year in Europe, will open its doors in Frankfurt. Over 600 participants will be presenting their latest innovations, products and services to a savvy public.

What can you expect from this 6th edition? A few companies such as Roboze, Tridtive and Xerion have already made their first announcements. Others have followed this move:

Verashape will unveil a new 3D printer dedicated to healthcare 3D printing: VSHAPER 500 MED

VSHAPER 500 MED 3D Printer was created to meet the growing demand of contemporary world for spatial printouts intended for use in medicine. The machine is characterized by a ​​420/420/440 mm workspace and an extruder equipped with two V-JET heads. The combination of these components enables efficient creation of high quality, precise 3D models.

A closed chamber with UV light, silver-based antibacterial powder coatings and a vacuum table provides perfect environment to create precise 3D Prints intended for medical applications says Marek Kantowski, R&D Lead Engineer from VERASHAPE.

VSHAPER 500 MED together with other solutions offered by VERASHAPE will be available to view at stand 3.1-G88.

Arburg and its Freeformer 300-3X

The Freeformer is a process that comprises three components that functions with the Arburg Plastic Freeforming (APF) process, enabling the additive manufacturing of complex functional parts in resilient hard/soft combinations with support structure. In addition to the new “big version”, two proven Freeformer 200-3X machines will be on view. At the Arburg exhibition stand E70 in hall 3.1, visitors will also be able to view more part samples and test them at four interactive stations.

AMFG will demonstrate new post-production management solutions to its AI-driven software platform

Autonomous Manufacturing aka AMFG is a UK-based software company that provides workflow automation solutions through an AI-driven software platform. The new solutions that the company will showcase include a tool that helps users identify parts post-build, a new post-processing scheduling system and a quality assurance (QA) management tool. The company wants to demonstrate the potential of a Digital Part Identification tool; how it can automatically identify finished parts post-build, so as to compare them to requirements and prepare them for additional post-processing and delivery.

Visitors to AMFG’s stand at Formnext in Hall 3.0 F68 will also be able to use the Digital Part Identification tool to identify real-life 3D-printed parts for themselves.

WONDERCUTTER wants to amaze with an ultrasonic cutter

Have you ever found it difficult to cut a plastic printed part? – Companies such as Wondercutter offers practical solutions for such matter. A picture is worth a thousand words:

4D Additive from CoreTechnologie

Unveiled for the first time in April, at Add Fab, CoreTechnologi will officially launch its software in Germany. The software makes it possible to check and find the ideal positioning of a part, to create supports and finally allow the nesting and the production of several forms at the same time. As a reminder, it works via two main settings: Standard and Expert.

The company will carry out demos of the software as well as its prints on booth C60 – Hall 3.0.

Henkel and its adhesive solutions for 3D printing

LOCTITE 3DP Bonding Kit is a set of bonders that address the assembly issues of 3D printed parts.  According to Ozgur Tanriverdi, 3D Printing Global Manager at Henkel, “the new LOCTITE 3DP Adhesives enable 3D printer owners to print bigger parts in pieces, to optimize their processes by enabling assembly of many parts in the same print volume, and to bond dissimilar and difficult materials to each other.”

Henkel will also provide visitors with further information on Post Processing applications on the booth:3.1-H59.
