THE CUTTING-EDGE OF 3D PRINTING
INDUSTRY LEADER FOR HIGH-END MATERIALS
The BigRep EDGE is an industrial machine for the additive manufacturing of large-scale objects in demanding work environments. The EDGE uses high end thermoplastic materials for end-use products, functional prototypes and composite tooling. With a state-of-the-art Bosch Rexroth® motion control system, new Metering Extruder Technology (MXT®), a heated chamber, and an optimum design, the EDGE sets a new standard in additive printing.
The BigRep EDGE was expertly designed and manufactured to print large industrial objects with high-end engineering-grade materials in a temperature-controlled environment. Its enormous build and advanced industrial features ensure big results and transformative value for businesses across industries.
BENEFITS & FEATURES
Speed & Precision
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 VOLUME
Enormous Print Bed
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 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 GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE
Accessible & Intuitive
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.
OUR NEW METERING EXTRUDER TECHNOLOGY (MXT®)
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.
