Filament Dry Box for Ideal Material Conditions

Protect your materials in the BigRep SHIELD

Designed to protect your filament from material degradation, the BigRep SHIELD dry box stores filament in ideal conditions to save you time and money by preventing downtime and damages.

Air circulates in the high-capacity, overpressured chamber - capable of storing up to 60 kg of filament spools - and in the desiccant chamber that achieves 0.01% humidity, crushing the industry standard of 1% by 100X.

Unquestionably vital for the storage of hygroscopic materials, the SHIELD keeps all types of filament in perfect condition, reducing misprints and material waste by up to 20%. Extend the life of your BigRep machine and save up to 50% on repair costs caused by clogging and extruder damage. The SHIELD is a must-have insurance policy to avoid workflow disruptions.

NO HUMIDITY, NO HEAT: The Controlled Desiccant Air Loop

The BigRep SHIELD prevents filament moisture absorption without heat by operating in a sealed environment with highly-effective air circulation. By looping air through a controlled desiccant chamber the SHIELD effectively eliminates 99.99% of airborne moisture, maintaining 0.01% relative humidity to handily beat the 1% industry standard without risking over-drying from long-term heat exposure.

MASSIVE CAPACITY: The 60 kg Storage Chamber

The industrial-sized dry box holds up to 60 kg of filament, enough material for one month continuous 24/7 printing. The SHIELD provides ample space for safe, long-term storage of highly-sensitive additive manufacturing materials to maintain their ideal condition.

INDUSTRIAL RELIABILITY: The Siemens Control System

BigRep collaborated with Amboss+Langbein, an industry leader with almost 40 years expertise in drying systems for plastics manufacturing. The BigRep SHIELD's high-quality Siemens control system uses intermittent cycles to separate desiccants past a quality-assured moisture threshold, ensuring ultimate productivity protection at all times.
