BigRep PRO Makes North American Premiere at AMUG
Powered by BigRep MXT and computer numerical control systems and drives by Bosch Rexroth, the PRO delivers full connectivity to integrate additive manufacturing with Industry 4.0, BigRep reports.
March 28, 2019
BigRep is debuting its PRO at AMUG (Additive Manufacturing User Group) conference in Chicago, March 31–April 4, 2019. For the first time in North America, attendees can experience the PRO. Equipped with BigRep’s new MXT, a Metering Extruder Technology and a Bosch Rexroth motion control system, the PRO delivers speed and IoT connectivity that fully integrates with Industry 4.0, according to BigRep. It can be ordered now.
During AMUG, BigRep will offer two presentations in partnership with industry experts. During one session, “Speed, Precision and Connectivity for Factory 4.0,” BigRep and Bosch Rexroth will share their vision for the factory of the future, the role that additive will play and how to fully connect 3D printing into manufacturing. The second presentation, “How Large-Scale Additive is Transforming Industries,” will feature experts from Boyce Technologies and Ford Motor Company, as they share case studies for prototyping, tooling, patterns/molds and end-use parts.
“We are proud and excited to have our partner, Bosch Rexroth, and customers, Boyce Technologies and Ford, join us at AMUG to share their expert insights on the value and future of additive manufacturing,” says BigRep chief business officer, Frank Marangell. “Our latest technology offers customers complete solutions for integrated additive manufacturing systems, enabling companies to reimagine how they produce parts from design to production.”
During AMUG, BigRep will be conducting live demonstrations of the PRO. During the demo, attendees will get to see up close the PRO’s 1 cubic meter build envelope and large, temperature-controlled spool chamber allowing for continuous printing with high-performance materials. Attendees can learn more about the software and technology powering the PRO including the new CNC control systems and drives by Bosch Rexroth and BigRep MXT.
“Our new groundbreaking MXT system is something the industry has been waiting for, as it makes the PRO five times faster with greater precision and quality than current extrusion speeds,” says BigRep CEO, Stephan Beyer, PhD. “And AMUG, which encompasses a wealth of additive knowledge and industry leaders, is the perfect place to introduce the PRO to the North American market and demonstrate its full performance capabilities.”
