Titan Robotics Debuts New Atlas-H 3D Printer with Dual Pellet Extruders at Rapid+TCT 2019
May 20, 2019
Titan Robotics, Ltd. will debut its latest production 3D printer with dual pellet extruders at the RAPID + TCT Event, May 21 – 23, 2019 in Detroit.
The new Atlas-H product line features dual retracting pellet extruders combined with an industrial closed-loop motion control system that enable print speeds reaching 30,000mm/minute, according to the company. Titan says the dual pellet extrusion system further reduces part production costs by combining high-speed printing with the ability to use a wider range of low-cost pellet feedstocks.
“Titan has been a pioneer in the development and implementation of pellet extrusion technology in the additive manufacturing industry,” says Clay Guillory, Titan Robotics CEO, via a press release. “Our Atlas-H product launch aligns with Titan’s mission to develop innovative solutions and technologies to bring additive manufacturing into industrial production.It strengthens Titan’s reputation as one of the most innovative companies in the industry.”
Titan Robotics says pellet extrusion 3D printing on the Atlas with a heated enclosure significantly increases the number of materials that can be 3D printed, ranging from the very flexible, to high stiffness and from low-temperature commodity materials, to high-temperature engineering thermoplastics. This range of materials in pellet form is also the lowest cost 3D printing feedstock available on the market to date, according to the company, with cost savings reaching 10X lower than traditional filament feedstocks.
The new Atlas-H model with a build volume of 42x42x48 inches also features a new industrial design capable of reaching print speeds of up to 30,000 mm/min with multiple extruder heads on the same gantry, according to Titan Robotics.
“With the launch of Atlas-H, we believe both existing and new customers will benefit from increased speed and reduced raw material cost with high reliability never seen before in this industry. Our expanded product portfolio empowers our customers, enabling them to choose the configuration that meets their production needs,” said Titan’s CCO, Rahul Kasat, via a press release. “Available configurations include options for multiple filament and pellet extruders on a single gantry, thus optimizing customers’ capital investments and operating expenses.”
Titan plans to conduct live 3D printing on the new Atlas-H Dual Pellet Extrusion 3D Printer during Rapid 2019, using dual materials as well as showcasing high print speeds. Rapid attendees will also see Titan’s flagship Atlas 2.5 3D Printer with Hybrid Pellet + Filament Extrusion 3D printer in action in the Titan booth (#527).
