BigRep, a global leader in large-format additive manufacturing (AM) technology and solutions, celebrated the delivery of its 500th industrial 3D printer since the company was founded in 2014.
The announcement is the latest in a string of BigRep product and service launches such as 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. Other recent launches include the premiere of a new printer, the STUDIO G2, and the introduction of four new engineering-grade filaments: PA6/66, PET-CF, PLX, and BVOH.
For many customers across industries, BigRep’s large-format AM solutions (FFF segment) 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.
The 500th system delivered is a BigRep ONE acquired by e-mobility tech-company JAMADE GERMANY, which just recently launched its underwater scooter, AMAZEA, a water sports mobility device scheduled to use serial produced AM parts at the consumer level, being 75% comprised of custom 3D-printed features.
