Titan Robotics Unveils the Improved Hyperion Design

In pursuit of our mission to provide the highest quality large-format 3D printers on the market, the Titan team is excited to unveil the improved Hyperion design. The first thing you’ll notice, the new Hyperion is larger than the previous model, with a build volume of 24 x 24 x 24 inches. The frame is now a heavy duty welded steel frame that is precision machined to provide a solid foundation for the printer, with a custom sheet metal heated enclosure to allow for reliable prints in high temperature plastics.

The Hyperion

The Hyperion still maintains the overhead gantry, core XY design, but we have upgraded to the stronger 15mm GT3 belts. The Z axis is still driven by 16mm direct drive ballscrews. As with all of our machines, the Hyperion comes with the option to upgrade to Yaskawa closed loop servo motors as opposed to all stepper motors. With all of these improvements, the Titan team has verified rapid travel speed up to 1,500mm/second on the Hyperion.

Heated Build Chamber

Titan has also made improvements to the heated bed by now offering a vacuum plenum for the polycarbonate surface and an auto bed leveling system. The build plate itself remains a precision machined aluminum plate that can be heated to 175C. With the heated bed and heated build chamber, the Hyperion can reliably print in most FFF style materials, such as ABS, PLA, PETG, Nylon, PC+PBT, HIPS and carbon fiber filled filaments.

Dual Extrusion

Another upgrade to the new Hyperion design is a wipe system for the dual extrusion option.  Titan continues to use the Bulldog XL extruder on the Hyperion, but now offer the E3D V6 or E3D Volcano hot end for smoother prints or faster prints. We have found the E3D V6 to be effective in printing high resolution parts. And when it comes to large parts that need to be printed fast, the E3D Volcano is the right hot end for the job with nozzles ranging from .4mm-1.2mm

The Hyperion is Titan Robotics’ answer to affordable large-format 3D printing, ideal for businesses of all sizes to improve their manufacturing processes through additive manufacturing. For more information or to request a quote on the Hyperion, please contact us at info@titan3drobotics.com.
