BigRep Hannover Messe Recap

Hannover Messe over but we’re still buzzing with excitement, weeks later!

Held over the course of 5 days, between 1-5 April the world’s leading trade show for industrial technologies welcomed 215,000 attendees. Central themes included 5g mobile standards, autonomous systems, and integrating artificial intelligence.

“Hannover Messe 2019 showed that is the most important international platform for all technologies related to industrial transformation.” - Dr. Jochen Köckler, CEO of Deutsche Messe AG


Over 6,500 exhibitors were spread out over 227,000m2. This year, BigRep showed up like never before, with partners, Bosch Rexroth to present their idea, Factory of the Future, enabled by BigRep 3D Printers. Together, the NEXT AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle), an Autonomous transport system, was presented, as well as the unveiling the NERA bike, alongside the BigRep PRO. With the help of 5G (a central theme of Hannover Messe) data-intensive processes such as quality monitoring in the multi-variant manufacturing can be outsourced to the cloud or production-related edge systems.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven presided over the opening ceremonies, and even stopped by to see the 5G Robotic Hand presented with Bosch Rexroth and BigRep. Chancellor Angela Merkel said “I remain a big supporter of open markets and free trade.”


The NERA bike was created in 12 weeks from sketch to a functional, driving prototype, using BigRep printers, and Bosch Rexroth technology.

“This is what we at BigRep called rapid innovation. In my opinion, what the industry is currently lacking the most, is innovation. And what we do best, is rapid innovation. So, in a very short period of time, we’re taking an idea from zero, to creating a working piece of equipment. This gives our customers a true competitive advantage in the market. With BigRep printers, we enable our customers to do the same. We’re not just selling a machine, we’re selling a reliable process.” said BigRep CEO Stephan Beyer.
