Titan Launches New Atlas-HS with Hybrid Additive and Subtractive Capabilities on a Single Platform

With 3D printing and machining capabilities, Titan’s Atlas-HS continues to enable additive manufacturing in industrial production

Colorado Springs, CO – Titan Robotics, Ltd., a leader in production additive manufacturing solutions and equipment, has released its new Atlas-HS system that incorporates its proven pellet extrusion system with a 3-axis milling system on the same gantry. The new cutting-edge Atlas-HS incorporates Hybrid Additive and Subtractive technology enabling 3D printed parts to be machined both during and after the printing process. Taking production additive manufacturing to the next level, the Atlas-HS shortens cycle times and produces smooth and accurate end-use 3D printed parts.

Expanding on Titan’s highly successful line of Atlas 3D printers, the Atlas-HS features a heated chamber for printing high-performance polymers, including CF-PEI, GF-PEKK, Nylons and more, and is available with print volumes of 42”X x 42”Y x 44”Z up to 50” X x 50”Y x 72”Z, with custom size options also available. The Atlas-HS gives industrial customers ultimate flexibility, with a spindle and the option to incorporate both Titan’s pellet and filament extruders on the same gantry.

“As part of Titan’s mission to enable adoption of additive manufacturing in industrial production, we are continuing to provide new and innovative solutions for our customers with the launch of the Atlas-HS. As the industry leader in pellet extrusion, the Atlas-HS broadens the capabilities for our customers to utilize our multi-head systems in new applications,” said Rahul Kasat, Titan Robotics Partner and CEO.

Atlas-HS Industrial Applications

As a production additive manufacturing solutions provider, Titan’s Atlas-HS is designed and built to address the needs of customers in industries including aerospace, automotive, foundry, consumer products and appliances, government agencies and more. The Hybrid Additive and Subtractive system on the Atlas-HS enables users to quickly and cost-effectively manufacture end use parts, patterns, molds, tools, jigs and fixtures.

“The Atlas-HS provides new and innovative solutions for production additive manufacturing by enabling industrial users to 3D print a near-net shape part with pellet extrusion and then post machine it to meet final part requirements, as well as produce complex geometries with in-situ machining capabilities,” said Bill Macy, Titan Robotics’ Partner and CTO.

In line with Titan’s mission to enable the adoption of additive manufacturing into industrial production, the Atlas-HS provides new solutions to shorten cycle times and lower the cost of part production. Parts can be printed quickly using Titan’s high-deposition pellet extrusion system and printing near-net shapes. Then, additional time savings are achieved by the ability to machine in-situ or after printing without having to remove or re-calibrate the part on another machine. Cost savings are achieved by reducing capital expenditures with a single machine incorporating two processes and by utilizing pellet feedstocks, which can cost up to 10X less than traditional filament feedstocks.

Atlas-HS Specifications

“We have designed the Atlas-HS in keeping with our core values of offering production-ready systems and customizable features. As with all our Atlas models, the Atlas-HS will be available with industrial and advanced features that customers can select to meet their needs and their end-use application, such as a tool changer with multiple tools available,” said Clay Guillory, Titan Robotics Founder and CSO.

The Atlas-HS utilizes Titan’s proven, industrial 3-axis design with a welded steel frame. Industrial features unique to the Atlas-HS include a chip collection system, an available tool changer with a capacity of up to six tools, spindle sizes up to ¼” in diameter and up to 4” in tool length and tool calibration sensors available.

Like all of Titan’s Atlas models and systems, the Atlas-HS utilizes an industrial CNC motion control system with servos on all axes and the ability to incorporate customized features including I/O sensors, air filtration, material dryers and more.

Titan Uses Pellet Extrusion to Produce 1000’s of Face Shields

As a manufacturer of industrial 3D printers, Titan Robotics is utilizing our production additive manufacturing technology to make personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers in Colorado and across the country.

With Pellet Extrusion 3D Printing on the Atlas, Titan is able to print these parts at much faster rates, with much lower material costs compared to traditional filament desktop 3D printers. Printing directly with pellets also enables the use of a wider range of materials, such as flexible materials, for some of these PPE parts.

In order to provide the right parts that are approved by medical professionals, Titan is working through accredited organizations such as the Colorado Coronavirus Innovative Response Team, America Makes, the Department of Defense, as well as local hospitals such as UC Health. The parts that Titan Robotics is printing are either already approved by these organizations or under review by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

In the News: Titan Robotics featured on KOAA News5 & Fox 21

One of Titan’s focuses is 3D printing face shields for healthcare workers. With our industrial 3D printers using pellet extrusion, Titan is able to print a face shield halo in 5.5 minutes using less than 50 cents in material. With traditional filament 3D printing, each of these parts would take 2-3 hours. But with Titan’s pellet extrusion technology, we can printing 32 halos in the time it would normally take to make just one. This design for face shields has been approved by UC Health as a re-usable part that can be sanitized.

As part of another effort through the state, Titan also printed hundreds of halos for the Colorado Coronavirus Innovative Response Team, which are being delivered to Genesis Plastics in Greeley for distribution to hospitals in Colorado. Titan worked with another Colorado Springs small business, Motominded, to complete these face shields. Motominded used its laser cutting capabilities to cut the clear shields that fit onto the halos. For this project, several of Titan’s employees brought in their personal 3D printers from home to make these parts as this design was smaller and required filament 3D printing. 

3D printed prototypes of medical masks for evaluation by doctors

Titan has also received requests for 3D printing face masks from local hospitals and have printed several prototypes out of different materials, such as flexible materials, for the doctors to test out. However, 3D printing face masks is a more complicated effort that will take longer for the additive manufacturing community to develop. The 3D printed face mask designs are currently being evaluated by medical authorities such as NIH and UC Health. If these designs are approved, Titan will utilize our printers and capabilities to produce these parts.

What’s better than a large 3D printer? A custom enclosure to go with it!

Enclosures are a staple in the 3D printing world, especially when using ABS. In fact, it’s almost impossible to print ABS parts without a heated bed and enclosure, as this type of filament will warp without them. For smaller 3D printers, those heated enclosures are relatively simple. But when your 3D printer is as tall as a person, such as Titan’s Atlas, things get interesting.

So how did we do it? Simple: use the same industrial quality materials to build a big box to house the Atlas!Continue Reading..
