René Gurka, the CEO of BigRep, was personally approached by the chancellor, whereby he demonstrated the performance of large-format 3D printing solutions by the Berlin technology startup, much to Mrs Merkel‘s delight. In addition to the exclusive presentation of the new, third generation of the BigRep ONE, she also looked at various examples and applications of this breakthrough technology that is defining the industry of tomorrow.

René Gurka, CEO from BigRep states: “We are very proud that we were able to welcome Chancellor Angela Merkel to our stand at CeBIT. She could get an idea of the opportunities and potential  offered by large-scale 3D printing with respect to the digitalization of the local economy. Current studies conclude that there is still a great need to catch up on the digitalization and digital transformation of the German economy. Our goal is to enable our 3D printing solutions to address this opportunity and to be a significant contributor. “
 
BigRep is the main partner of Bitkom this year, whose breakthrough changes by digitization under the motto “hub@CeBIT” allow you to become familiar with this technology at their stand. Moreover, companies from different areas, which are excellent examples of the digital transformation, are represented at the Bitkom booth. We cordially invite you to stop by the Bitkom stand in Hall 4, Stand B72 to get a personal impression of large-scale 3D printing technology and to obtain more information about BigRep – until March 18.
