BigRep, a LEADING player in large-scale Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) 3D printing, launched two high-temperature 3D printers – the ALTRA 280 and the IPSO 105 – derived from the acquisition of Austrian company HAGE3D last year.

While marketed by HAGE3D, these two 3D printers are already known in the European region as PRECISE and MEX. The updated machines are engineered to meet the needs of the demanding industrial applications from aerospace to defense to automotive, offering speed, reliability, precision, and automation. They have now been rolled out in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, and are available for purchase.

BigRep unveils ALTRA 280 and IPSO 105 3D printers offering high-temperature capabilities via integration of HAGE3D tech Dr.-Ing. Sven Thate, Managing Director of BigRep GmbH commented, “We are proud to extend our portfolio towards high-performance filament extrusion with our open system approach, thereby aiming to double the addressable market of our solutions with the technology from HAGE3D, our recently announced planned acquisition. For our European customers, both the ALTRA 280 and IPSO 105 are considered game-changing industrial AM solutions at different scales that come with all temperature capabilities, unlocking wide material options. Backed by our 3D printing ecosystem of an intuitive software suite, global customer service, and an eLearning platform, we have customer success in focus as we expand our offering to high-performance applications.”

The ALTRA 280 and IPSO 105 update the company’s portfolio to include high-temperature FFF 3D printing and expand into new applications, that can print the full range of standard to high-performance polymers. They have an open material system for a broad filament choice, either with BigRep’s quality filaments or 3rd party compatible materials.

Key highlights of the BigRep ALTRA 280 include the large, heated 280-liter build chamber (500mm x 700mm x 800mm), that reaches temperatures up to 180°C, state-of-the-art DSX extruders reaching up to 450°C, and the fully automated quick start. With up to 4 DSX extruders, the ALTRA 280 is designed to achieve reliable dual extrusion, additionally safeguarded by their respective backup extruders. Designed for productivity, the machine can be used to produce functional parts.

While smaller in size, the BigRep IPSO 105, is a large-scale industrial 3D printer with high temperature capabilities. It is an industry all-rounder at an attractive price-to-performance ratio in the high-temperature machine category. Designed for tooling applications requiring high-performance materials, the IPSO 105 is engineered to be a tool maker’s tool, with a heated build chamber of 105 liters (400mm x 600mm x 440mm) reaching up to 100°C, and a print bed heated up to 180°C. It features dual DSX extruders, capable of printing high-performance materials up to 450°C. The 3D printer shares some of the key features with its big sister, the ALTRA 280, such as the fully automated quick start.

Thomas Janics, Managing Director HAGE3D GmbH said, “We believe that both machines will transform the way manufacturers approach additive manufacturing, especially in the aerospace, military, and automotive segments, where high-performance parts are crucial. They are a combination of reliability, precision, large volume, and high-temperature capabilities and are engineered to push the boundaries of what’s possible with AM.”
