BigRep’s second-generation Metering Extruder Technology (MXT) delivers exceptional speed and precision for industrial projects, forming one of the defining features of the EDGE. A higher travel speed makes the premium model machine ideal for high-speed print completion.
The Build Chamber
A heated build chamber provides a controlled, high-temperature environment for engineering-grade materials of up to 200°C in the chamber and 220 °C on the print bed. The EDGE’s ventilation system, compatible with standard factory environments, ensures an even chamber temperature and user safety from fumes.
The Build Volume
The largest of its kind with a controlled heated environment, BigRep’s EDGE offers enormous volume for maximum flexibility and large-scale industrial print capacity. The EDGE has a build size (1500 x 800 x 600 mm) and an advanced pull-out print bed ensures large, heavy prints are easy to remove.
The Graphical User Interface
The EDGE places an emphasis on a premium user experience, with fully automated doors opening upwards, access to the print bed from all sides. An easy-to-use graphical user interface with an extra-large screen enables ultimate control over all print settings.
BigRep has developed a metering extruder with exceptional speed and precision, which is one of the defining features of the EDGE. The state-of-the-art extruder allows for ultimate control on large-scale industrial prints, allowing users to achieve the highest quality for every application.
With unmatched dynamic response for start, stop and corners, BigRep’s Metering Extruder ensures precision and high print quality every time. Built for speed, the lightweight extruder is agile and reliable under pressure to deliver fast, detailed results.
BigRep’s device accelerates print times with high material throughput. The extruder maximizes output, as an agile component German-engineered to print in high volume around the clock.
Founded in 2014, BigRep set sail to transform the 3D printing and manufacturing business. With its 1m3 volume, the BigRep ONE opens the gateway to a new dimension of 3D printing and 3D manufacturing, while the BigRep Studio allows fast and precise large-scale 3D printing.
From furniture to vehicles to robotics, we think everything is possible. We want you to envision everything from human scale robot parts, sculptural artworks in all their full-dimensional glory, and dream the impossible world-changing designs of tomorrow while enabling you to print them today using one of our 3D printers.
