BigRep & BASF strategic alliance to develop 3D printing

On the occasion of formnext in Frankfurt, BigRep and BASF are finalizing negotiations surrounding a strategic alliance to jointly develop 3D printing solutions, aimed at accelerating the wholesale introduction of additive manufacturing technologies into industrial applications.

Upon successful finalization, BASF will become a preferred material and application development partner for BigRep, while BigRep will continue to develop advanced equipment and software solutions ready for integration into digital manufacturing environments.

Berlin-based 3D printing manufacturer BigRep, which provides hardware, software, materials and services for large-scale 3D printing, sees a future cooperation with chemical company BASF as proof of its continuing commitment to engineering and manufacturing cutting-edge filaments and printers.

Both companies expect to be finalizing the partnership in the coming weeks, and solidifying plans to work together internationally on innovative 3D printing applications and materials.

BigRep will run a booth at leading international additive manufacturing fair formnext in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, from 14 to 17 November, presenting the latest innovations in additive manufacturing for end-use spare parts and prototyping.
