BigRep, a global leader in large-scale 3D printing, appointed a new reseller in Spain, Multi3DPrint, to continue its expansion across Europe. Multi3DPrint, located in Oliva, Valencia, will now be the official distributor and a technical service centre for BigRep, in Spain.
Currently, Multi3DPrint has multi-sector customers from OEM’s to Metal handling, including Grupo Aguas de Valencia and Ibys Technologies. Furthermore, and integral to Multi3DPrint’s business is the value-added service that they offer: implementing and integrating additive manufacturing in industrial companies—also a cornerstone of BigRep’s innovation lab and consultancy – NOWLAB.
Speaking on the appointment as the official distributor of BigRep, Daniel Collado Serrano, business development executive of Multi3DPrint said, “We have 3 significant manufacturers of industrial machines in Spain. The market is really full, but from my point of view and experience, BigRep seems to be the best option for medium and big customers.”
He continued, “BigRep’s fast and precise industrial printers will allow Multi3DPrint to sell to manufacturers that want more than just prototyping. Of course, prototyping will be a central application for end-users, but with the potential to print spare parts, jigs and fixtures, and end-use parts, giving manufacturers an opportunity to cut operating costs, and reduce their time-to-market.”
As a test to showcase the disruptive capabilities of 3D printing, Daniel Collado 3D printed a replica of an aluminium profile that works as a trim of a machine. He observed that “The mould for extruding the aluminium doesn’t exist yet,” he continued, “This is something that a customer wants to test and design before production commences. 3D printing opens new design horizons, by drastically reducing the costs to test new designs. Where before, a design would need to be CNC machined or milled, now manufacturers can print on-site, test if the part works, and redesign until the part has been perfected.”
Commenting about the future of industrial 3D printing Daniel Collado said, “Probably the future will be in the automation of feeders and the post-processing of 3D printing via robotics, to improve the production and advance this amazing technology from prototypes to a mass production system,”
As BigRep looks to the future and continues to innovate, the full integration of robotics with AM will allow the industry to transcend from small batch production to industrial production lines.
