Berlin startup BigRep is partnering up with Heidelberg Digital Platforms for production of the BigRep STUDIO large-scale 3D printer.
Technology company BigRep is collaborating with Heidelberg Digital Platforms, a division of Heidelberg Druckmaschinen, to build the new BigRep STUDIO 3D printer. After thousands of print hours and extensive beta testing, construction of the new machines is now well under way.
BigRep is a startup in Kreuzberg, Berlin, which specializes in large-format 3D printing solutions for professional and industrial applications. The cooperation with Heidelberg is a major step towards becoming a global supplier of additive manufacturing systems.
In a press release, the company said they stand to benefit from Heidelberg’s know-how in industrialization, product validation, and flexible production.
“The strategic partnership with Heidelberg gives us the opportunity to focus on efficiently developing our portfolio,” says Dr. Stephan Beyer, CFO of BigRep.
Josef Schell, Head of Digital Platforms at Heidelberg, adds: “With this cooperation, we’re contributing to the development of industrial 3D printing, as well as the digitalisation of traditional production processes.”
Heidelberg is assembling the 3D printing systems for BigRep at their Wiesloch-Walldorf location. The partnership includes logistics for delivery to customers worldwide, including order management “as a service”, and is expected to result in a significant increase in efficiency.
“We’re contributing to the development of industrial 3D printing.”
It should also considerably reduce time-to-market for the BigRep STUDIO, allowing BigRep to concentrate on marketing and customer support for this latest product.
According to BigRep, their new STUDIO sets new standards in terms of speed, precision and reliability. It has a newly developed print head extruder to process a variety of high-temperature filaments and flexible materials. And with the smaller design, BigRep STUDIO is ideal for use in smaller workspaces like studios or offices.
