This edition of Rapid 3D Printing News brings you 3D printing news from Formnext 2018 and other sources. We have seen a large number of new introductions last week. Continue reading to know about the two new 3D printers from BigRep, new binder Jetting system from ExOne, world’s fastest large-format 3D printer from Nexa3D and new material introductions from Stratasys.
BigRep, the global leader in large-scale 3D printing, introduced two new industrial FFF 3D printers at the recently concluded Formnext 2018 exhibition. The printers will be powered by BigRep’s new proprietary MXT® extrusion technology.
One of the new printers launched is BigRep PRO. It is specifically designed large-scale 3D printing of industrial parts. It features a large build envelope of one cubic meter with temperature controlled spool chamber which allows continuous printing with difficult-to-print materials like ABS, Nylon, etc.
The 3D printer also presents a metal frame with a glass door. It has a heated bed mounted with polyimide foil for enhanced adhesion during the printing process, and an integrated inductive sensor allows for semi-automatic levelling.
Speaking about the new MXT® technology, BigRep CEO, Stephan Beyer, Ph.D., said, “This new technology delivers the type of innovation that the industry has been waiting, as our ground-breaking MXT® system makes our new printers five times faster – with greater precision and quality – than current extrusion speeds.”
He added, “This is one giant leap for additive manufacturing, allowing BigRep customers to make full use of today’s most advanced large-scale 3D printing technology.”
