Titan Robotics, Ltd. will debut its latest production 3D printer with Dual Pellet Extruders at the Rapid+TCT exhibition, May 21 – 23, 2019. The new Atlas-H product line features dual retracting pellet extruders combined with a robust frame and industrial closed-loop motion control system that enable print speeds reaching 30,000 mm/minute. The Dual Pellet Extrusion System reduces part production costs by combining high-speed printing with the ability to use a wider range of low-cost pellet feedstocks. This feature enables polymer extrusion 3D printing on the factory floor.
A heated enclosure on the Atlas 3D printer 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, with cost savings reaching 10X lower than traditional filament feedstocks.
The Atlas-H model with a build volume of 42”x42”x48” also features an industrial design, capable of reaching print speeds of up to 30,000 mm/min with multiple extruder heads on the same gantry. This high-speed motion control system uses industrial controllers and servo drives on all axes, enabling precise and reliable movements and smooth G-Code execution.
Titan’s Atlas line of 3D printers are used by industrial customers across multiple industries, including aerospace, government, defense, automotive, foundry, manufacturing, universities, apparel and visual merchandise across the globe. Customer applications range from end-use production parts to mass customization, molds, tooling and design iteration.
“With the launch of Atlas-H, we believe both existing and new customers will benefit from increased speed and reduced raw material cost,” said Titan’s CCO, Rahul Kasat. “Available configurations include options for multiple filament and pellet extruders on a single gantry, thus optimizing customers’ capital investments and operating expenses.”
Titan will conduct live 3D printing on the new Atlas-H Dual Pellet Extrusion 3D Printer during Rapid 2019, utilizing 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).
