BigRep has launched its newest addition to its family of additive manufacturing solutions – the BigRep PRO. German-manufactured for precision and speed, the PRO is a device for industrial solutions.
BigRep has engineered and manufactured a machine that prints with engineering-grade materials to guarantee users can produce the large scale applications they need. The PRO is an industrial 3D printer that provides solutions to market demands.
Whether it is composite tooling, functional models, or end-use products, the PRO delivers, with a variety of new features, such as an advanced Bosch CNC system, new Metering Extruder Technology (MXT®), a sealed off build chamber, and temperature-controlled filament chambers.
The PRO was inspired by the ONE and STUDIO 3D printers, winners of numerous awards including the 2018 German Innovation Award, the 2018 German Brand Award, and the 2016 German Design Award.
Benefits and Features
The Build Platform
BigRep manufactures machines for big prints as its name implies, and the PRO is a perfect match. With a structure envelope of one cubic meter, the machine is designed for 3D printing of large-scale industrial objects, enabling endless application possibilities.
The Enclosed Frame
An insulated enclosed metal frame guarantees ideal uniform temperature control and the glass doors provide the best view of the print. Further enhancing safety is the PRO’s agreement with typical ventilation systems, for smoke and emissions control, rendering it a best practice example for 3D printing in industrial surroundings.
The Insulated Filament Cabinet
Industrial Material Compatibility
The PRO offers an optimal atmosphere for printing with industrial-grade materials, because of a humidity-controlled spool chamber. The inner air circulation fans make certain of the air flow for even temperature across the filament cabinet, and the cabinet contains up to four filament spools.
Speed and Precision
BigRep is launching a metering extruder technology (MXT®) with brilliant precision and speed, which is one of the significant features of the PRO. This advanced extruder allows for definitive control on the materials deposition, enabling users to realize maximum quality for each application.
The Print Bed
The heated print bed mounted with polyimide foil offers ideal adhesion in the printing process. An incorporated inductive sensor permits semi-automatic leveling of the print bed.
The CNC System
Bosch Rexroth Technology
A new advanced Bosch CNC motion-control system renders the PRO the perfect machine for regulating the whole printing process, from the first step to the last. Extensively used in the automotive sector, the Bosch system guarantees highest responsiveness, accuracy, and closed-loop control in BigRep’s industrial-grade machine, as well as greater connectivity.
