Opening of prototyping centre in China
With prototyping centres already in Germany and the Americas, German plastics machinery manufacturer Arburg (Loßburg; opened an Arburg Prototyping Centre (APC) in Shanghai / China in spring 2021. The new centre, with four freeformers that produce benchmark parts using additive methods, gives prospective customers from additive manufacturing the chance to see Arburg Plastic Freeforming’s (APF) component quality and performance.

Gerhard Böhm, MD, sales and service at Arburg, said, “In Asia, we are experiencing growing demand for our freeformer machines in applications that involve additive manufacturing of functional components made from original materials.” The four machines in Shanghai are primarily used for processing and assessing materials from Chinese suppliers. Demand from the medical technology and packaging industries is particularly high.

In May 2019, Arburg had inaugurated the Arburg Technology Center in Portugal and Thailand (see of 30.05.2019).
