Titan expands its Atlas line of industrial 3D printers featuring Dual Pellet and Hybrid Pellet + Filament Extrusion Options
Formnext November 10, 2020
Colorado Springs, CO – Titan Robotics, Ltd. is bringing industrial large-format 3D printing to greater heights with the launch of its largest system, the Atlas 3.6. With a build volume of 50”x50”x72”, the Atlas 3.6 is one of the largest production additive manufacturing systems on the market with state-of-the-art pellet extrusion technology and an actively heated enclosure , enabling customers to print large parts out of high-performance materials including CF-PEI, GF-PEKK, nylons, ABS and more.
The robust Atlas 3.6 is designed to handle the additional weight and size of the machine, making it compatible with Titan’s Dual Pellet Extrusion and Hybrid Pellet + Filament Extrusion systems. Built with a heavy-duty, rigid design and powerful components, the Atlas 3.6 can maintain accuracy and fast rapid travel speeds with the larger print area.
“When several of Titan’s industrial customers began requesting larger custom Atlas machines to meet their production needs, Titan began innovating to provide a robust solution to meet that need,” said Titan Robotics Partner, Rahul Kasat. “With our team of engineers, manufacturing experts and our extensive experience in providing production additive manufacturing solutions, the development of the Atlas 3.6 further enables printing large parts at lower cost reliably using large-format industrial 3D printing. With this large build size, customers can now print large parts as is without worrying about slicing it in multiple sections for printing and trying to assemble it post-printing.”
Titan’s industrial customers are utilizing the Atlas 3.6 across several industries, including aerospace and defense, consumer appliances, foundry and more. With an actively heated chamber reaching 80C and several extrusion configuration options, including Dual Pellet and Hybrid Pellet + Filament, the Atlas 3.6 provides solutions across a wide range of applications, from large-format tooling, patterns and molds, to functional parts
The Atlas 3.6 is immediately commercially available with extrusion configurations including Dual Pellet Extrusion, Hybrid Dual Pellet + Filament Extrusion, Hybrid Single Pellet + Filament Extrusion, and Single Pellet Extrusion. As a production additive manufacturing system, the Atlas 3.6 features an actively heated chamber, door safety interlocks and industrial CNC control system with closed loop servos on all axes.

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 material cost savings up to 10 times 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
