EngineeringWhen engineering new products, 3D printing lets you test functional prototypes and finding solutions as you go, saving time and costs at every stage of product development.
BCN3D Printers in Engineering
IDEX technology: Same investment, double productivity
IDEX technology is the only extrusion system capable of printing with two heads independently. This system allows enabling Duplication and Mirror printing modes capable of printing two pieces at a time. Double printing capacity means double productivity, all with the same investment. Unlike any other dual extrusion machines on the market, when you acquire a Sigma or Sigmax machine, you get one printer but you double your productivity. All thanks to the IDEX technology.
Big volume with the biggest printing surface
The BCN3D Epsilon offers a large print volume of 420x300x400mm. The main advantage of this feature is its proportions, offering the largest printing surface on the market with an incredible height of 400mm. This allows to print the vast majority of parts that are manufactured.
High-performance materials for professional prototyping
BCN3D Filaments are manufactured by BASF and Mitsubishi Chemical, two of the most renowned chemical corporations in the world. Their reputation in the manipulation and production of plastic materials, along with the advanced plastic processing techniques, allows BCN3D to provide the filaments with more repeatability of the market. Each spool will consistently show the same quality and will always offer the same results.
