The Germany-based 3D printing manufacturer, BigRep, and engineering company, Bosch Rexroth, have launched a development partnership to implement state-of-art CNC control systems and drives into new additive manufacturing systems, 3D Printing Industry reports.

After previously agreeing a materials partnership with chemicals company, BASF, BigRep has accelerated its intent to utilise large-scale industrial 3D printing as its 3D printers will hold full connectivity and data processing capabilities.

Dr. Stephan Beyer, CEO at BigRep, said: “Across industries, customers are looking for reliable, controllable and efficient 3D printers in order to manufacture top quality parts.”

“As BigRep is the first to integrate CNC grade control systems in 3D printers, we will re-define additive manufacturing. The Rexroth controls are also an excellent platform for providing our 3D printers with full connectivity for existing production and automation systems. This will establish 3D printing as a key industry 4.0 application.”
