"Signed, sealed and delivered!"
Over at BigRep we're passing milestones and celebrating the 500th delivery of our large-format 3D printers - making BigRep one of the world's most trusted and successful AM manufacturers!
It's just the latest news in an exciting string of BigRep product and service launches, like the opening of a new 3D printing service in Boston - BigRep 3D PARTLAB - to expand North American customer benefits by offering 3D printed parts on demand, the recent premiere of a new printer - the STUDIO G2 - and the introduction of three new engineering-grade filaments - PA6/66, PLX, and BVOH.
For many customers across industries, BigRep’s large-format AM solutions are the preferred choice. In automotive, major global players such as Ford Motor Company and Volvo Car Corporation rely on BigRep systems for prototyping, tooling, and other applications. In aerospace, AIRBUS SAS and Etihad Engineering are using BigRep’s 3D printers for a variety of applications. Other renowned customers include Bosch Rexroth AG and manufacturing companies such as JC Steele & Sons Inc. in the U.S.
“This delivery is more than just a figure, it shows how much industrial customers value our products and the production freedom they create. We greatly appreciate this trust and will continue utilizing the full potential of AM applications to the benefit of our customers, new and old,” says Martain Back, BigRep's Managing Director. “Delivering consistently high quality, fast, precise, and cost-efficient products, is unthinkable without BigRep’s dedicated employees, as well as the commitment of our investors and partners, whom we’d like to thank with gratitude.”
The 500th delivered system is a BigRep ONE acquired by e-mobility tech-company JAMADE GERMANY, which just recently launched their underwater scooter, AMAZEA, the world’s first water sports mobility device scheduled to use serial produced AM parts at the consumer level, being 75% comprised of custom 3D-printed features.
“We are very excited about this delivery because it represents a new dimension of industrial AM in endconsumer products, both for us as a company and the industry. The new BigRep ONE will enable us to launch the serial production of AMAZEA as planned, completing our existing fleet of four BigRep ONE printers,” says JAMADE Managing Partner and Technical Director, Detlef Klages. “We greatly value the printers’ cost efficiency, accuracy and quality when compared to the extremely high investment for traditional tools.”
The BigRep ONE is among the three German-engineered AM systems manufactured by BigRep, which also include the recently introduced STUDIO G2 and BigRep PRO – the company’s next-generation 3D printers. The PRO includes BigRep’s proprietary Metering Extruder Technology (MXT®) and is equipped with a state-of-the-art Bosch Rexroth CNC motion control system to combine speed and precision for a truly industrial additive manufacturing solution with IoT connectivity to fully integrate with Industry 4.0. In addition, BigRep, in partnership with BASF, provides engineering-grade materials to take full advantage of their 3D printers’ potential.
Here at BigRep we're proud of these important milestones we're passing, and of the continued trust from our industrial partners who innovate their manufacturing with our systems. We're looking forward to continue working towards our goal to provide industrial manufacturers anywhere in the world with the tools they need to make production faster, more innovative, and more affordable.
