Colorado Springs-based industrial 3D printer manufacturer Titan Robotics will show off its newest offering, the Atlas-H, at RAPID + TCT 2019 in Detroit. Titan Robotics sells three other versions of the Atlas that have different build volumes, but the Atlas-H separates itself from the pack with dual extruders and a heated build chamber for high-temp materials like PEEK and PP.
Instead of spooled filament, the Atlas-H uses a dual-extrusion pellet system, which makes its operating cost around ten times cheaper; it can also easily print composites by mixing pellets of different plastics. It boasts a 42” x 42” x 48” build volume for fabricating large components that require no assembly, and the extra extruder enables the use of dissolvable support materials that drastically reduce part cleanup time. “With a second pellet extruder on Titan’s Atlas-H, our customers can deposit multiple model materials within a single part or model and support materials so that parts with complex features can be more readily realized,” said Bill Macy, Titan’s CTO.
Industrial-grade CNC motion controllers and servos along with screw extrusion allow the Atlas-H to print at speeds of 500mm/s, meaning massive parts can be completed in hours rather than days. Titan Robotics continues to design 3D printers with industrial and manufacturing use cases in mind. “Titan has been a pioneer in the development and implementation of pellet extrusion technology in the additive manufacturing industry. Our Atlas-H product launch aligns with Titan’s mission to develop innovative solutions and technologies to bring additive manufacturing into industrial production,” said Clay Guillory, Titan Robotics CEO. “It strengthens Titan’s reputation as one of the most innovative companies in the industry.”
