Titan Robotics and Jabil Collaborate on Engineered Materials for Large-Format Industrial Additive Manufacturing

Titan and Jabil validate new formulation for pellet extrusion on Titan Atlas printers

November 17, 2020  – Titan Robotics, Ltd. today announced a strategic collaboration with Jabil Inc. to accelerate the adoption of large-format, industrial additive manufacturing. Jabil Engineered Materials, a unit of Jabil, which develops innovative polymer formulations and compounds at its ISO 9001 Materials Innovation Center, is working with Titan to qualify and integrate customized materials for use on Titan’s pellet-based Atlas 3D printers.

Together, the companies are driving the production of large-format tooling for applications in, sheet metal forming, composite layups, welding fixtures, molding, casting patterns and end-use parts on Titan Atlas printers to meet a growing need for increased part strength and faster printing speeds. Jabil’s specialized materials science expertise, combined with Titan’s robust printing performance, are ideally suited for addressing the growing list of rigorous industrial, as well as demanding medical, defense and aerospace applications.   

“Titan and Jabil are fulfilling a joint mission to move additive manufacturing into serial production and advanced manufacturing,” said Titan Robotics Partner and CTO, Bill Macy. “By choosing Jabil’s engineered materials customized for applications with high-throughput pellet printing on the Atlas, we can help customers reduce costs, create products with mass customization, reduce cycle times and innovate quickly.”

Titan and Jabil have tested and validated new pellet formulations of Jabil’s carbon fiber reinforced nylon materials, which are designed to produce stronger, lighter and more flexible parts. “Jabil takes a polymer science approach to developing engineered materials,” said Matt Torosian, director of additive product management at Jabil. “All of our materials are designed exclusively for additive manufacturing, so Titan receives pellets that embody all the necessary attributes to optimize performance and reliability.”

The collaboration between Titan Robotics and Jabil gives customers greater choices from a wide variety of high-performance pellet materials as well as the opportunity to create custom compounds to address specific requirements. By teaming, both organizations also offer an intermediate yet vital step to validate materials and part designs before customers print extremely large and costly, high-end final parts.

As an authorized distributor of Jabil’s 3D printing pellet materials, Titan will support Jabil’s ongoing development of new material formulations for pellet extrusion 3D printing on the Atlas platform.

About Pellet Extrusion on the Atlas

Pellet extrusion on the Atlas enables production additive manufacturing 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.

Pellet Extrusion on the Atlas enables order of magnitude material cost savings compared to traditional 3D printing filaments and the ability to print with hundreds of grades of resins. From flexible, low durometer materials up to high-performance and highly filled engineering materials, pellet extrusion on the Atlas utilizes open market materials.

Pellet Extrusion on the Atlas also enables the ability to print large, production parts due to the faster print speeds and higher through-put on the Atlas. Flow rates range from 1 lbs to 30 lbs per hour and prints speeds can top out at 30,000 mm per minute, reducing production time from days to hours.

The combination of reduced feedstock cost and faster print speeds provides reduced operational costs and faster cycle times with organic capacity.

How Large 3D Printers are Shaking Up the Manufacturing Industry

3D Printing is moving past the “what is it stage?” as more people are becoming familiar with the technology and using it in manufacturing. The recent movement in the industry hasn’t come from the large 3D printer manufacturers such as 3D Systems or Stratasys, but instead from small, local innovators who are driving the change to a more open and inclusive environment. The walls are continuing to be broken down by companies like The 3D Printing Store® and Titan Robotics®.Continue Reading..

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..
