Our hardware.

 

 

The AFU5 printer unit is optimized for manufacturing of printed injection mold tooling.

 

With emphasis on precision and repeatability, it is built for one single purpose: To deliver the fastest and most versatile low-volume printed tools on the planet


The AFU5 seamlessly integrates with all other AddiFab equipment and is compatible with all AddiFab printed tool resins (as well as the 3D-printing resins of most of our competitors).

 

With the AFU5, it has finally become possible to economically manufacture injection molded batch-of-one prototypes and low-volume injection-molded components - in the entire range of injection-moldable materials.

FEATURES

  • Patent-pending build vat with ultra low-force layer release for increased Z-axis precision

  • Automated resin supply - reduces the amount of resin in the vat, while preventing that large prints run dry

  • Erowa ITS build-plane connector, for trouble-free plane exchange with ultrahigh repositioning accuracy

  • AddLine job management software, for easy handling of print jobs from CAD to component

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Ultra heavy duty, for stable round-the-clock operation

  • Build volume: 54 x 96 x 200 mm

  • Resolution: 50 µm X/Y, down to 20 µm Z

  • Precision: 50 µm X/Y/Z

  • Print speed: Up to 90 mm/hour

  •  L x W x H: 1.5 x 0.9 x 2.4 meters 

AFU5 - PRINTER

PFU2 - CLEANER

The PFU2 cleaning station provides cleaning of your printed mold cavities in a controlled, well ventilated environment.

 

Partially automated, it provides you with the means to clean even the most complex cavities with confidence.

FEATURES

  • Two automated vats, for assisted cleaning of printed cavities

  • Two manual vats, for thorough after-cleaning rinse-off

  • Programmable, for tailored cleaning programs

SPECIFICATIONS

 

  • Closed fluid management system, for improved operator protection

  • L x W x H: 1.5 x 0.9 x 2.4 meters

The PFU3 de-molding station is the last station in the Freeform Injection Molding tool-chain.

 

It provides a safe enclosure for dissolving of sacrificial printed tools.

PFU3 - DEMOLDER

FEATURES

  • 3 vats

  • Sequential de-molding

  • Parallel de-molding

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Closed fluid management system, for improved operator protection

  • L x W x H: 1.5 x 0.9 x 2.4 meters

Our tooling resins.

IM2.0 GP - RESIN

The General Purpose version of our printed tooling resin.

 

Fast and easy dissolving, with good support for the cost-efficient molding of non-filled materials

 

It provides a safe enclosure for dissolving of sacrificial printed tools.

SPECIFICATIONS
