BigRep is introducing a 3D printer leasing service of their large-format industrial 3D printer (FFF segment). Available to customers across North America, the turnkey solution offers the BigRep STUDIO G2 industrial 3D printer, the company’s 3D printer for industrial applications. It is available in 6-month rental leases at an affordable rate, in addition to installation, training and other service features, the company says.
“For the first time, our service makes a large-format industrial 3D printer available to new customers or small- to mid-sized businesses looking for a hassle-free and flexible turnkey AM solution at an affordable rate,” says Frank Marangell, BigRep CBO and president of BigRep America. “Facing a challenging economic environment and volatile markets, customers today want quick and flexible solutions without big investments or long-term obligations. By making 3D printing available today, BigRep is helping companies stay ahead of the curve with an agile manufacturing solution to be even more competitive tomorrow.”
The STUDIO G2 rental service is offered in partnership with NCP Leasing, a company specialized in lease financing of AM systems and providing capitalization of other high technology capital equipment.
The BigRep STUDIO G2 standard rental lease covers a 6-month period at a competitive monthly rate of (net) $3,000 USD. A small nominal base fee covers the simple installation and training. In addition, rental customers gain access to all of BigRep’s 3D printing technological expertise, industrial applications and full range of high-performance filaments as well as the company’s global partner network.
Once the lease has expired customers can opt for different ways to proceed, giving them maximum flexibility: they can simply renew their lease, purchase the system at a competitive price, or return the printer to BigRep.
The STUDIO G2 is optimal for any workspace—from the office to the factory floor. Its fully enclosed build envelope boasts a generous build volume of 1000x500x500 (mm) and maintains a controlled environment to ensure optimal conditions for advanced materials. With its high-flow dual extruder equipped with tool-steel nozzles, the G2 produces geometrically complex parts with ASA, ABS and abrasive materials like carbon-fiber reinforced plastic, the company says.
The STUDIO G2 also comes equipped with BigRep’s BLADE slicer software, which provides accurate printing time and material use calculations for optimized productivity.
The STUDIO G2 leasing service adds to BigRep’s expanding product offering options in North America. Earlier this year, BigRep opened the BigRep 3D PARTLAB, the new, Boston-based center providing on-demand 3D printing services for parts including prototypes, tooling, molds and end-use parts; printed to customers’ specifications with BigRep’s extensive line of engineering-grade materials. PARTLAB makes the full potential of the company’s technology and expertise in large-format additive available to new customers while offering comprehensive services for BigRep’s industrial customer base across North America.
