Meet the BCN3D Epsilon and BCN3D Sigma 3D printing series
The BCN3D 3D printer has been adopted to provide innovation professionals with innovation from their work. We are proud to have our own generation of 3D printers combining increased productivity, professional reliability and availability for trouble-free everyday work.
BCN3D Epsilon 3D printer series: Industrial power in your business.
Combining the latest generation of state-of-the-art 3D printers and Smart Cabinet, this series is designed to deliver exceptionally strong functional parts with quality and precision, delivering industrial power to your business or factory. This complete, professional 3D printing solution has been developed to enable innovators - from manufacturers, engineers to designers - to easily create functional parts, prototypes, production jigs and tools; and everything else you can imagine with the greatest bandwidth for maximum performance.
The Epsilon 3D printer with a working area of 420 x 300 x 400 mm has been improved and got the new name Epsilon W50. Now it is the turn of the smaller version of the Epsilon W27, which offers the same high performance with a compressed construction volume of 420 x 300 x 220 mm. These printers have the IDEX system and allow you to print using water-soluble support materials.
The printers are equipped with the IDEX (Independent Dual Extrusion) system, which allows you to print in mirror mode and in duplicate mode. This improves the print quality and allows you to print twice as many models at the same time.
BCN3D Smart Cabinet: Seamless integration for longer uptime
The new Smart Cabinet BCN3D integrates seamlessly with both Epsilon 3D printers, maximizing their uptime. Filament moisture control increases material efficiency by protecting the filament and reducing printing errors caused by moisture, significantly improving the quality of prints.
The dehumidifier can hold up to 8 small spools (from 750 g - 1 kg) or 4 large spools (up to 2.5 kg) that can be loaded into the 3D printer directly from this humidity controlled environment, thus enabling printing while keeping the materials in perfect condition.
The power supply protects your work at all times, avoiding the risk of losing the printing process due to power cuts: in the event of a power failure, this system provides 2 minutes of additional printing time after a power failure, allowing the 3D printer to return automatically to its starting position. After power is restored, you will be able to resume printing from the last position.
Print easily and securely on industrial materials
BCN3D Epsilon 3D printers have been designed to support the most demanding applications thanks to features such as a full housing and a passively heated chamber, where the temperature can reach up to 60ºC. Many industrial applications are at hand with the Hotend X, made of a special tool steel alloy. Combined with any BCN3D Epsilon 3D printer, it enables printing on fiber-filled materials, making it possible to print stiffer parts, designed to withstand the most demanding jobs. Good examples of such technical materials are PP GF30 (30% glass fiber) and PAHT CF15 (15% carbon fiber), developed by BASF exclusively for the BCN3D Epsilon series.
To be able to work with these technical and abrasive materials, safety must be guaranteed. The Epsilon BCN3D series includes unparalleled safety features, including HEPA filter and carbon filter, to prevent potentially harmful particles and fumes from being released into the air; providing a sheltered environment for people around the printer. In turn, the Safety Pause function will stop the printing process every time the enclosure door is opened, so your experience will always be completely safe.
Full connectivity for a smooth workflow
Both the Epsilon W50 and Epsilon W27 are equipped with the latest connectivity features. Easily send files to print from anywhere with our BCN3D Cloud service and do it over Wi-Fi for the most hassle-free workflow. You can also forget about manual firmware updates: should you decide to have them, our Over The Air (OTA) updates will ensure your 3D printer is always up to date.
BCN3D Epsilon 3D printers are also compatible with a wide range of heads: 0.4, 0.6, 0.8 and 1.0 mm; which increases their versatility and application, from printing small, delicate details to solid parts on a large scale.
Strength, advanced technology and world-class reliability are ensured with the 3D printing solutions of the BCN3D Epsilon series. They are designed to create complex parts with solid mechanical properties - the possibilities are endless!
The BCN3D Sigma series of 3D printers: designed for maximum productivity
Since the introduction of the Sigma 3D printer to the market in 2015, Sigma has become the best-selling 3D printer from BCN3D, known in the desktop 3D printing market for its pioneering IDEX (Independent Dual Extrusion) technology. Today we say goodbye to the Sigma R19 that has been discontinued and present the new Sigma D25. Sigma D25 is designed for maximum productivity with features such as huge print volumes and full connectivity.
The printer has a working area of 420 x 300 x 200 mm and is equipped with the IDEX system. The Sigma D25 becomes the perfect tool for rapid prototyping. With 3D printing modes such as mirroring and duplicating, you can speed up any product development process, quickly create new iterations, and eliminate the need to wait days for the part to be ordered.
Simple workflow for maximum ease of use
Sigma D25 has been optimized for trouble-free work with the materials most often used by our users, which are also the safest for printing in the office environment: we are talking about standard filaments BCN3D PLA, PET-G, TPU and PVA. You can select an enhanced printing profile for each of them directly in BCN3D Cura and let the 3D printer do its own thing - no tweaking or customization needed, just hit the "print" button and continue your day!
In addition, like Epsilon 3D printers, the Sigma D25 is equipped with the latest connectivity features. With our BCN3D Cloud service, you can easily send files to print from anywhere and do it over Wi-Fi for the most hassle-free workflow. As with the Epsilon BCN3D series, you can forget about manual software updates with our Over The Air (OTA) updates to ensure your 3D printer is always up to date!
Integrated with the front panel, a sensitive, multi-lingual 5-inch touchscreen makes operation easy and conscious - just scroll through the menu and select options. Detailed information such as heatbed and nozzle temperatures keep you up-to-date on tasks in progress and allow you to take action with ease, even without leaving your desk.
Advanced features and increased functionality
Compared to the Sigma R19, the new generation of desktop printers shows some differences. The first is, of course, the exterior design, with a new look chosen to make the BCN3D Sigma line stand out among our growing product portfolio, create a more unique image and better fit the desktop market.
However, the most exciting improvements aren't that easy to spot from the outside. For example, the new Sigma D25 offers better heat distribution thanks to its aluminum build plate and silicone thermal pad that evenly distributes heat over the printing surface. The calibration process has also been improved with an optimized firmware calculation system that allows more accurate level adjustment.
The extruders have also been moved to the back of the printer, reducing the distance to the head and preventing overheating problems; and both the X and Z axes have been strengthened, the first by changing the material to stainless steel and the second by repeatedly changing its mechanical structure.
We have no doubt that all of these features make the new Sigma D25 the most efficient partner for all your needs - whether it be rapid prototyping with IDEX independent printheads or developing functional parts to support your workflow Sigma D25 is the tool for that!
Epsilon W27 and Sigma D25 are now available for pre-order and will be available locally from BCN3D partners around the world on October 19, 2020. Smart Cabinet will be available from Spring 2021.
