The EDGE from BigRep is an industrial device for the additive manufacturing of large-scale objects in challenging work settings. The EDGE uses high-end thermoplastic materials for functional prototypes, end-use products, and composite tooling. With an advanced Bosch Rexroth® motion control system, an optimum design, new Metering Extruder Technology (MXT®), a heated chamber, the EDGE raises the standard in additive printing.
The BigRep EDGE was skillfully engineered and produced to print large industrial objects using high-end engineering-grade materials in a temperature-regulated setting. Its massive structure and progressive industrial features guarantee solid results and transformative value for companies across various industries.
Benefits and Features
The Metering Extruder Technology
Speed and Precision
BigRep’s second-generation Metering Extruder Technology (MXT) offers excellent precision and speed for industrial projects, making it one of the major features of the EDGE. A higher travel speed renders the top model machine ideal for high-speed print completion.
The Build Chamber
A heated build chamber offers a controlled, high-temperature setting for engineering-grade materials of up to 200 °C in the chamber and 220 °C on the print bed. The EDGE’s ventilation system, matches typical factory settings, guarantees an even chamber temperature and user safety from smokes.
The Build Volume
Enormous Print Bed
The largest of its kind with a regulated heated setting, BigRep’s EDGE offers huge volume for highest flexibility and mass industrial print capacity. The EDGE has a form size of 1500 x 800 x 600 mm and an advanced pull-out print bed guarantees large, heavy prints are not difficult to remove.
The Graphical User Interface
Accessible and Intuitive
The EDGE aims to place importance on a first-class user experience, with completely automated doors opening upwards, providing access to the print bed from every side. A user-friendly graphical user interface with a very large screen allows crucial control of all print settings.
Metering Extruder Technology (MXT)
BigRep has built a metering extruder with excellent precision and speed, which is one of the crucial features of the EDGE. The advanced extruder allows for definitive control on large-scale industrial prints, enabling users to realize the maximum quality in all applications.
With unrivaled active response for start, stop, and corners, BigRep’s Metering Extruder guarantees precision and superior print quality each time. Made for speed, the lightweight extruder is agile and dependable under pressure to deliver rapid, complete results.
BigRep’s device fast-tracks print times with high material throughput. The extruder gets the most out of output, as an agile component German-engineered to print in high volume full-time.
