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).

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..

How Titan Robotics Makes Large Format 3D Printers Accurate

Quality Process

We wanted to give you an in-depth look into why our large format 3D printers are so accurate, consistently within +-.005 in accuracy each time they print. The reasons are fairly simple. The accuracy is due to the fact that our machines are built over the course of 200+ hours with the highest quality components, and with extreme precision. The proof is in our process which we have outlined below.Continue Reading..

3D Printing a Robot: Meet Fred

Open source projects surround the maker community. Many brilliant people in this community have devoted their entire spare time to make their grandiose dreams become a reality. Some people have shared their passions with the internet with hopes of collaboration. The InMoov project is one of these dreams spearheaded by one man as well as the community he surrounded himself with. Gael Langevin was a sculptor by trade and wanted to create something more than a static human model. He dove head first into robotics with no prior experience and with the help of the open source community has made a moving, talking robot a reality. Many have followed in his footsteps, inspired by his work and take on the task of building a 3D printed robot.Continue Reading..

Dinosaur Bones at the Dinosaur Resource Center

One of our customers, the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center, interviewed Clay Guillory, CEO of Titan Robotics, about the Titan Robotics 3D printers that are used to print their replicas of dinosaur bones. It was definitely a fun interview, and it was fun talking about the power and future of large 3D printers.

The Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center uses The Atlas 3D Printer which is one of the largest 3D printers that we have to offer.
