Clay Guillory is a mechanical engineer by day, and a mechanical engineer by night. His passion for 3D printing began as a hobby, building the machines in his garage during his spare time. But the hobby quickly grew into a business, and Clay founded Titan Robotics at the age of 26. As a Mechanical Engineer, Clay knew he wanted to use his skills to make a difference in the lives of others, and found that path through 3D printing. From making custom prosthetics for children, to pushing the envelope of 3D printing with new technology and machine design, Clay has become an expert in the field of additive manufacturing and the head of a successful start up in Colorado Springs. As founder and CEO, Clay envisions Titan Robotics leading the way in the fields of 3D printing and manufacturing, from the medical field, to research, product development and every day manufacturing processes.
