FORD UPSCALES THEIR IN-HOUSE TOOLING WITH BIGREP 3D PRINTERS

BigRepLogo

“After two or three successful prints, we already returned the investment on the BigRep machine. Was a huge success!”

Lars Bognar Research Engineer in Advanced & Additive Manufacturing at Ford

Ford embraced additive manufacturing 30+ years ago and now relies on BigRep for large-format 3D printing to produce full-scale jigs and quality assurance tools in one single piece. For Ford, the cost savings are huge, as their BigRep machine paid for itself after just the first few prints.

just one application. Following such incredible success, Ford expanded their BigRep ONE’s use and eventually needed more additive manufacturing capacity – leading to their next investment in a BigRep PRO!" />

Learn how Ford Motor Company optmized factory-floor tooling production with a 94% lead time reduction by introducing BigRep large-format additive manufacturing. With over 30 years of experience in additive manufacturing, Ford upscaled their Cologne prototyping facilities with two BigRep additive systems. After first acquiring a BigRep ONE, Ford returned their investment with just one application. Following such incredible success, Ford expanded their BigRep ONE’s use and eventually needed more additive manufacturing capacity – leading to their next investment in a BigRep PRO!

BigRep ONE

The Big Rep One is a large-scale 3d printer that can produce prints rapidly. Have the ability to create a variety of products at a low cost and boost your design development process. It is a open spaced printer, allowing you to closely monitor prints. The easy to use interface also allows you to edit printer settings as they are being printed.

BigRep PRO

BigRep PRO

The Big Rep Pro’s most unique advantage is the high level of precision, quality and detail in the prints produced. Inbuilt filament storage ensures the filament is kept at the ideal quality, fully enclosed chamber, inbuilt sensors and an innovative Fiber Ready Advanced Capabilities Extruder produces excellent products in a short period of time.
