Titan Robotics Atlas 3.6 3D printer
Titan Robotics Ltd. is taking industrial large-format 3D printing to greater heights with the launch of its largest system, the Atlas 3.6. The company says the printer features a build volume of 50" × 50" × 72", state-of-the-art pellet extrusion technology and an actively heated enclosure, enabling customers to print large parts out of high-performance materials, including CF-PEI, GF- PEKK, nylons, ABS and more.
The Atlas 3.6 is designed to handle the additional weight and size of the machine, making it compatible with Titan’s Dual Pellet Extrusion and Hybrid Pellet + Filament Extrusion systems. Built with a heavy-duty, rigid design and powerful components, the Atlas 3.6 is said to maintain accuracy and fast rapid travel speeds with the larger print area. With this large build size, customers can print large parts as is without needing to slice parts into multiple sections for printing and then trying to assemble it post-printing.
With an actively heated chamber reaching 80°C and several extrusion configuration options, the Atlas 3.6 provides solutions across a range of applications, including large-format tooling, patterns and molds, and functional parts. It also features door safety interlocks and industrial CNC control system with closed loop servos on all axes.
Pellet extrusion on the Atlas enables production AM solutions by printing directly with plastic pellets instead of traditional filament. Pellet extrusion increases throughput and decreases material costs, while also expanding the variety of materials that can be 3D printed.
Available extrusion configurations include Dual Pellet Extrusion, Hybrid Dual Pellet + Filament Extrusion, Hybrid Single Pellet + Filament Extrusion, and Single Pellet Extrusion. The Atlas 3.6 is suitable for a variety of industries, including aerospace and defense, consumer appliances, foundry and more.
This marks the first time the company is offering 3D-printed spare parts.
Arizona Home Floors considered buying a mold to produce a plastic version of its DustRam product. But when a prototype proved durable enough to withstand working conditions, the production strategy shifted to 3D printing.
When does it make sense to opt for a high- or low-resolution print?
