Bosch & BigRep announce a development partnership in AM

BigRep, active in large-scale 3D printers, and Bosch Rexroth, active in drive and control technologies, have announced a development partnership: 3D printers by BigRep will be equipped with state-of-art CNC control systems and drives by Bosch Rexroth, firmly establishing Additive Manufacturing as a key industry 4.0 application in industrial production technology while also making 3D printing a truly IoT-ready “made in Germany” machine with full connectivity and data.

Additive Manufacturing is establishing itself as a manufacturing technology for the Factory of the Future and has already had a significant impact on prototyping and small serial production. Bosch Rexroth is committed to this innovative technology. On the one hand, the specialist for drive and control technologies is using the process to enable the fast and cost-efficient creation of models, patterns, prototypes, tools and end products. One the other hand, the company offers 3D printing components and solutions.

By combining the experts in drive and control technologies with the experts in large-scale 3D printing, the additive industry will see faster and more cost-efficient creation of models, patterns, prototypes, tools and end-use products. BigRep and Bosch Rexroth are committed to reshaping manufacturing.
