Large-format 3D printing company BigRep GmbH is getting bigger. The German company has acquired Austrian company HAGE3D GmbH, which specializes in open high-temperature additive manufacturing systems. As a result of the acquisition, BigRep is strengthening its position in the open extrusion-based AM market by offering a broader spectrum of AM hardware, as well as expanding its reseller network and global operations.

While the specific details of the acquisition have not been disclosed, the companies have said that they have combined installed base of over 1,000 large-scale 3D printers across a range of industries. With HAGE3D solutions added to its portfolio of open large-format extrusion systems, BigRep is expanding its capabilities, particularly for medium- and high-temperature 3D printing. For HAGE3D, the acquisition means greater visibility for its systems globally.

BigRep HAGE3D acquisition

Thomas Janics, Managing Director of HAGE3D, said of the acquisition: “While our focus was previously on the German‐speaking markets, we now can provide our products globally through BigRep´s sales network, adding Graz to map of technology centers next to BigRep’s in Berlin, Boston, Shanghai and Singapore. Complementing its current low‐temperature and energy‐conscious large-format AM platforms, we will expand BigRep´s portfolio with a range of high‐temperature 3D printers that open a broad spectrum of new applications and markets.”

“We are excited about the merger with HAGE3D,” added Sven Thate, Managing Director of BigRep GmbH. “We expect the AM market to continue its dynamic growth for the foreseeable future, driven by strong megatrends such as digitalization and decentralization of manufacturing. We will capture this opportunity with HAGE3D, who ideally complement our team and portfolio of open AM solutions with its high‐temperature FFF platforms.”
