BigRep, the developer and manufacturer of the serial 3D printer, has declared at the recent Formnext in Frankfurt (Main) that it has entered an exclusive cooperation with a well-known German developer of 3D printers Kühling&Kühling. This cooperation has resulted in the launch of a new high-end printer, which complements the concurrent release of BigReps’ in-house designed studio-format printer. BigRep presented the VP 75, which was developed and manufactured by Kühling&Kühling, as the new “BigRep Tech” printer. The “BigRep Tech” is the first 3D printer in BigReps’ product portfolio which can process technical plastic polycarbonate.
Three years after BigRep’s foundation, the company proudly presents its next product: the “BigRep Studio”. The new “BigRep Studio” was presented at formnext. This device is considerably smaller and lighter in terms of size (1022mm x 1660mm x 1500mm), build volume (500mm x 1000mm x 500mm) and total weight (approx. 250kg) than the “BigRep ONE”, which is designed for large-scale production. René Gurka, CEO of BigRep says: “We are very pleased to announce our cooperation with Kühling&Kühling. The two companies share the same quality and service philosophy. Jonas and Simon Kühling are old hats in this young industry and have been building high-tech printers at their factory in Kiel for five years. The VP 75, which is distributed by us, has had one and a half years of development work. In the future we plan to implement joint development projects tailored to the needs of BigRep customers.”
