Titan Robotics and Infinite™ Material Solutions Collaborate on Novel Water Soluble 3D Printing Materials

Titan and Infinite™ host Webinar Dec. 3 on Use of Infinite™ AquaSys® Water Soluble Support Materials on Titan’s Industrial Pellet and Hybrid Extrusion based Atlas Platform

December 1, 2020  – Titan Robotics, Ltd. and Infinite™ Material Solutions announce a strategic partnership to provide novel water soluble materials for industrial additive manufacturing applications. The collaboration between the two companies leverages Titan’s production additive manufacturing platforms with pellet and multi-head extrusion systems with Infinite™ Material Solutions’ AquaSys® materials portfolio. These materials can be used as both water soluble support materials compatible with a variety of structural polymers and in soluble core applications.

Titan’s state-of-the-art Atlas 3D printers with Hybrid Pellet + Filament Extrusion and Dual Pellet Extrusion systems enable the use of dual materials to be printed using low-cost pellet feedstocks. With the Atlas’ heated enclosure reaching 80°C (176°F), industrial customers can print complex geometries using high-temperature pellet materials such as carbon fiber filled PEI or glass fiber filled PEKK with AquaSys® 180 high-temperature water soluble support material in either pellet or filament form. Customers can also print engineering materials like Nylons, ABS, PC and more with AquaSys® 120 general purpose water soluble support material in either pellet or filament form

“As an industrial additive manufacturing solutions provider, Titan’s production-ready systems and technology are an ideal fit with Infinite™ Material Solutions’ innovative and disruptive materials,” said Titan CEO Rahul Kasat. “Titan’s mission is to enable the adoption of additive manufacturing into industrial production, and materials like AquaSys® 120 and 180 make that possible by enabling the use of engineering grade materials with a water soluble support material. This enables our industrial customers to print more complex geometries without worrying about impacting surface finish during support removal.”

Together, Titan and Infinite™ are working to transform 3D printing and break down barriers to its adoption in industrial production. As part of the collaboration, Titan and Infinite™ are hosting an informative joint webinar on December 3, 2020, that will highlight several industrial 3D printing applications and techniques including Hybrid Pellet + Filament Extrusion and include advanced tips and tricks for dual material 3D printing.

“Infinite Material Solutions has been collaborating with Titan for the past two years and share a common vision of the future in additive.  The two teams share a common goal to provide disruptive solutions to the AM market; a printing platform and novel materials to enable ultimate user innovation.  We see huge potential for customers / end users to unlock new opportunities,” said Larry Doerr, Chief Operations Officer at Infinite™ Material Solutions.

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.
