Detroit, MI – Titan Robotics is partnering with top global material companies to demonstrate a wide range of high-performance materials with both pellet extrusion and filament extrusion on its newest Atlas 3D Printers during Rapid + TCT 2019. With a focus on production additive manufacturing, Titan will conduct live printing of new and unique materials from DuPont™, Infinite® Material Solutions and Push Plastic at Rapid + TCT held at the Detroit Cobo Center May 21 – 23, 2019.
As a production additive manufacturing solutions provider, Titan is pushing the boundaries with multi-head extrusion technology and increasing the number of materials that can be 3D printed. Teaming up with top materials companies in the AM industry enables Titan to continue to offer high-performance materials to make functional parts.
Titan will be printing with several unique materials on two of its newest Atlas 3D Printer models during Rapid + TCT 2019 in the Titan Booth, #527. Rapid attendees will have the opportunity to see high speed and multi-head extrusion 3D printing of materials from DuPont™, Infinite® Material Solutions and Push Plastic. The Titan Robotics Team and representatives from the material companies will be on hand to discuss printer capabilities, material properties and customers’ application needs.
Printing Schedule during Rapid + TCT 2019
Tuesday, May 21, 10am – 6pm: DuPont™ Zytel® 3D12G30PT Pellets with 30% glass fiber reinforcement
A high-performance material delivering a balance of stiffness and strength, Zytel® Glass-reinforced Polyamide Pellets is a specialty nylon material from DuPont™. Zytel® reinforced with 30% glass fiber has low warpage and shrinkage, excellent thermal performance (HDT>150C), chemical resistance, low moisture absorption during printing while still maintaining ease of printing and high-quality surface finish. Titan will conduct live printing of Zytel® Pellets with 30% glass fiber reinforcement during the first day of the Rapid + TCT Expo.
In addition to Zytel® pellets, Titan will also demonstrate high-speed printing of Hytrel® thermoplastic elastomer (TPC-ET) pellets on its secondary Atlas 3D printer during the first day of Rapid. Hytrel® 3D printing material is a versatile copolyester that combines the flexibility of rubber with the strength and processability of thermoplastics. It blends heat and chemical resistance with strength, resilience and durability.
Wednesday, May 22, 10am – 6pm: Infinite® Material Solutions AquaSys® 120 Water Soluble Pellets & Custom AquaSys® High Temperature Water Soluble Test Pellets
AquaSys® 120 is a new material from Infinite® Material Solutions specifically for 3D printing applications requiring high-performance attributes, quality, ease of use and increased throughput. Compatible with a wide range of materials, AquaSys® 120 features fast dissolution rates, high thermal stability, superior adhesion and is fully water soluble. AquaSys® 120 is compatible with a wide range of engineering grade resins, such as ABS, PC/ABS, Nylon, TPU, CPE, PC and PP. Titan will conduct live printing of AquaSys® 120 in pellet form as a soluble support material with nylon as the model material on the second day of Rapid.
Titan will also demonstrate live printing of a custom test material from Infinite® Material Solutions: AquaSys® High Temperature Water Soluble Pellets. While not commercially available, this proof-of-concept material is a high temperature, tap water only, soluble material that would be used in additive manufacturing applications requiring high processing temperatures. Titan will print this material during the second day of Rapid as a single, soluble tool demonstration.
Thursday, May 23, 10am – 3pm: Push Plastic ABS with 15% Carbon Fiber Reinforcement Pellets and PETG with 10% Carbon Fiber Reinforcement Filament
Push Plastic’s ABS reinforced with 15% of carbon fiber pellets and PETG with 10% carbon fiber reinforcement filament provide a production solution for additive manufacturing. Designed for structural components that require high stiffness, the CF ABS pellets and CF PETG filament feature an ease of printing with excellent stiffness, great dimensional stability and a matte appearance with exceptional surface quality. Titan will conduct live printing of Push Plastic CF ABS pellets, CF PETG filament and PLA pellets during the final day of Rapid.
Please stop by Titan’s exhibit booth, #527, at the Rapid + TCT Expo at the Cobo Center in Detroit, May 21 – 23, 2019.
