BigRep, responsible for a range of large 3D printers, has signed a development partnership with Bosch Rexroth, which supplies drive and control technologies. This means that BigRep will be able to add state-of-art CNC control systems and drives by Bosch Rexroth to its 3D printers.
BigRep CEO Dr. Stephan Beyer, explains: “As BigRep is the first to integrate CNC-grade control systems in 3D printers, we will re-define Additive Manufacturing. The Rexroth controls are also an excellent platform for providing our 3D printers with full connectivity for existing production and automation systems. This will establish 3D printing as a key industry 4.0 application.”
BigRep currently sells two printers – the large BigRep One and the smaller Studio, which is built under contract by Heidelberg. The company has already partnered with Etihad Airways and Deutsche Bahn and counts BASF, Koehler, Klöckner and Körber amongst its investors.
