The additive Think Tank
Our interdisciplinary team of experts come together to ask the right questions and find the best solutions for our clients. From initial ideation to functional full scale prototypes, we focus on intelligent design that showcases the potential of AM.
As Additive Manufacturing capabilities increase exponentially, the range of technically achievable and financially feasible applications grows simultaneously. We bridge the gap between design and engineering to create the products of the future for industries ranging from automotive to aerospace, medical, construction, and beyond.
Consulting & Research
We evaluate client needs to create a paradigm shift rethinking existing manufacturing processes. This includes part screening, redesigning FDM-optimized parts, integrating AM into existing value chains, training and orientation workshops. Our foresight into the future of AM helps us guide clients in the right direction to become cutting edge market leaders.
Our lab features an industrial robotic system with a build volume of 10 m3. We develop experimental processes like upside down printing, live surface scanning, printing reinforcement onto curved objects, and 10x faster throughput. We envision a factory of the future where integrated robotics support printing through digitized workflows, information feedback, and automated post-processing.
We do it all
We pride ourselves in being self-sufficient. Our combined capabilities allow us to do everything in house from research to consulting, ideation, design, fabrication, electronics, iterative prototypes, and finished products.
Each NOWlab project is unique and requires specific skills and talents to achieve the perfect result. We make the most of our multifaceted group by hand selecting members to assemble a customized dream team for each project.
As part of the BigRep family, we also have access to experts and specialists in other departments. We are able to cross-collaborate with mechanical engineers, material scientists, industrial designers, corporate strategists, and many more.
