SHIELD Passive Filament Dry Box

Shield

Industrial-Quality
Workflow Protection

Constant Over Pressure

The Constant Over Pressure
The SHIELD maintains constant over pressure in its cabinet for an airtight storage volume. This prevents new moisture from entering its chamber during regular operation and ensures the system can quickly remove any and all airborne humidity with 100% air recirculation.

Massive Volume

The 60 kg Storage Chamber
With an industrial-sized storage chamber capable of holding up to 60 kg of standard or engineering-grade filament, the SHIELD creates room for the safe, long-term storage of highly-sensitive additive manufacturing materials in their ideal condition.

Industrial Reliability

The Siemens Control System
With its high-quality Siemens control system, the BigRep SHIELD is calibrated for superior protection at all times. With intermittent cycles, the control system separates descants past a quality-assured moisture threshold to refresh in a high-efficiency drying process to ensures the ultimate productivity protection long term and at all times.

No Humidity, No Heat

The Controlled Desiccant Air Loop
The BigRep SHIELD prevents filament moisture absorption without heat by operating in a sealed environment with highly-effective air circulation. By looping air through a controlled descant chamber the SHIELD effectively eliminates 99.9% of airborne moisture, maintaining 0.1% relative humidity to handily beat the 1% industry-standard without risking over-drying from long-term heat exposure.

HUMIDITY SAFE

Keep your materials safe and dry for as long as you need. Protect materials from atmospheric humidity without heat in our sealed industrial filament cabinet.

HIGH CAPACITY

With an industrial-sized cabinet that holds up to 60 kg of 3D printing materials, you can store all your sensitive industrial filaments in an easily accessible location.

SECURE PRODUCTION

Ensure the smooth operation of your 3D printing processes. Protect sensitive filaments and prevent workflow disruptions from poor quality parts and clogs.

LONG-TERM PRODUCTION SECURITY

Protect your production with the BigRep SHIELD

A high-capacity filament dry box for the safe storage of 3D printing materials. Designed to protect industrial workflows by preventing material degradation that leads to lost time and damages, the BigRep SHIELD secures filament in ideal conditions for both short and long-term storage.

By storing materials in a sealed, humidity-controlled environment the BigRep SHIELD effectively prevents filament moisture absorption and protects your prints, 3D printers, and productivity. The SHIELD circulates air in an over-pressured chamber - capable of storing up to 60 kg of filament spools - and a desiccant chamber to maintain humidity levels as low as 0.1%. Unquestionably vital for the storage of hydroscopic materials the SHIELD ensures any filaments, from standard to engineering-grade, do not absorb water and maintain their ideal properties until needed.

HIGH-CAPACITY STORAGE

SECURE WORKFLOWS

With an over-pressured filament storage chamber and controlled desiccant air circulation, the SHIELD secures industrial productivity from lost time and damages due to degraded filaments. Able to maintain a relative humidity of 0.1%, it crushes the 1% industry standard to provide the best possible protection for your materials. Able to protect even the most sensitive filaments in humid environments, the SHIELD is a must-have insurance policy against unexpected workflow disruptions.
