Our Biggest Year Yet: Titan Robotics Gears Up for 2019 Expos

Titan Robotics is excited to unveil our latest products at several of the biggest additive manufacturing events and expos this Spring! You’ll have a chance to see Titan’s newest industrial 3D printers in action and meet the Titan Robotics team at three events across the country.


AMUG logo2019 will be the first year Titan Robotics showcases an Atlas 3D printer at the Additive Manufacturing User’s Group (AMUG) conference, held this year in Chicago, March 31 – April 4, 2019. The AMUG expo is much more than a trade show, with an intimate setting focused on sharing information and networking. Not open to the general public, the AMUG expo is exclusively for conference attendees and innovative companies like Titan Robotics demonstrating the latest in AM technology.

Titan will be printing with several unique materials (announced at a later date) during the AMUG expo on the Atlas 3D printer with the hybrid pellet + filament extrusion system. Materials being printed will include high temperature and high performance polymers. The Titan team and materials experts will be on hand to answer questions and discuss your specific application needs.  Register to attend AMUG here and visit Titan Robotics at Booth 78! (Early registration pricing ends March 2, 2019)



cast expo

Titan Robotics will also be exhibiting at CastExpo for the first time, held this year in Atlanta from April 27 – 30, 2019. Occurring every three years, CastExpo is the largest North American gathering of the metalcasting supply chain companies. Titan Robotics is excited to share how 3D printing and Titan’s line of Atlas 3D printers can improve pattern making processes with lower cost patterns, faster turn around time and better ROI.

3D Printed PatternTitan will showcase a wide variety of examples, demonstrating how pellet extrusion and filament extrusion on the Atlas can be a game changer for foundries of all kinds.

Rapid + TCTThis will be Titan’s biggest year yet at RAPID+TCTthe largest 3D printing event in North America! Held this year in Detroit from May 20 – 23, 2019, the RAPID+TCT trade show is the most comprehensive event in the Additive Manufacturing industry. Each year Titan’s presence has grown more prominent at RAPID, and 2019 will be no exception. With multiple machines on the show floor, Titan will unveil its latest developments and new technology at RAPID 2019!

Atlas 2.5 enclosureThis event will also be an opportunity to see a wide range of unique and new materials being printed live in the Titan booth. As always, Titan’s experts will be on hand to answer your questions, discuss unique applications and demonstrate our cutting edge AM technology.

Titan Robotics Debuts Faster, More Reliable 3D Printers at RAPID + TCT 2018

 

Fort Worth, TX – Titan Robotics’ Pellet Extrusion 3D printing technology and a new lightning fast 3D printer will be front and center at the RAPID + TCT 3D printing event this week.  Titan will be featured in several displays around the expo and debut a new, fully Yaskawa servo controlled 3D printer at the Titan booth, printing at speeds reaching up to 5Gs acceleration.

Titan Robotics will demonstrate direct pellet fed 3D printing on the Atlas in a heated enclosure at RAPID, enabling printing with a wider range of materials compared to traditional filament extrusion. Sample parts demonstrating the expanded capabilities of Pellet Extrusion on the Atlas will be on hand, from the very soft, rubberlike materials up to high performance materials, including 50% glass filled nylon and 50% carbon fiber filled PEI.

 

Custom Atlas

Titan Robotics teamed up with motion control experts, Yaskawa America, to set a new pace for 3D Printing speed, accuracy and reliability.  The system combines Titan’s expertise in large-format Additive Manufacturing technology with Yaskawa’s top of the line motion control systems. The machine’s advances are achieved through technology that is new to the field of additive manufacturing, and was drawn from the world of automated industrial machinery.

 

The new printer, developed in a cooperative effort between Titan and Yaskawa, is able to achieve an impressively fast printing speed of 350 millimeters per second. When moving between print events, the print head can travel between two precise points at a remarkable one meter per second.

“We’re really focused on having an accurate, robust machine that can do big parts really quickly and reliably, over and over again,” said Clay Guillory, Titan founder and  CEO, adding, “Our customers want something they can trust…they can’t afford to waste two weeks of print time on a really large, mission critical part.”

The new line of Titan 3D printers utilizes Yaskawa’s servo systems and machine controllers, components more commonly found in the world of high end automated factory equipment. Real-time feedback and automatic monitoring features are then enabled through Titan’s unique interface, giving the operator increased control and repeatability in 3D printing.

“I think this is a sign that we’re seeing the industry rise to the next stage in its development,” said Kevin Barker, Director of Sales for Yaskawa’s Motion division. “We’re seeing companies like Titan enter the top tier of the business. More of the producers who started at the hobbyist end of the industry are stepping up to create products that outperform the high-cost competitors who once set the standard in this technology.”

Atlas Pellet Extrusion

Titan’s revolutionary pellet extrusion technology will also be front and center at RAPID on multiple platforms at the expo, in addition to the enclosed Atlas Pellet Extrusion system at Titan’s booth (1830).

Taking center stage in the arena, Titan’s pellet extrusion system helped to create a dazzling display as the backdrop for RAPID’s keynote speakers. A series of 3D printed hexagons can be seen on each side of the stage, which light up in an elaborate projection mapped display. The 75 hexagons were fabricated using pellet extrusion on Titan’s Atlas 3D printer and the design and display put together by Go West Creative.

At the 3D Printing Playground, Titan’s collaboration with visual merchandising giant Fusion Specialties fuses Additive Manufacturing with fashion design. Six unique mannequin displays blend Titan’s colorful pellet extrusion 3D printing with traditional filament extrusion, to create a one-of-a-kind platform to display 3D printed fashion pieces. Fusion created the designs for the six hybrid mannequins, creating a distinct look that can only be achieved through 3D printing.
