Rep. Lamborn represents Colorado’s Fifth District, based right here in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Colorado’s 5th District is one of our nation’s most military-intensive congressional districts, with five military installations and home to more than 100,000 veterans. Rep. Lamborn also serves on the Strategic Forces and Emerging Threat and Capabilities Subcommittees. In these roles, he participates in the oversight of our nation’s strategic weapons, ballistic missile defense and space programs.
During the visit, Titan Robotics demonstrated several cutting edge Additive Manufacturing technologies. A highlight of the demonstration was Titan’s advancements in unique materials that can be 3D printed using the Atlas 3D printer with direct pellet fed extrusion. Titan team members and Rep. Lamborn discussed how this technology has great potential to change manufacturing and how Titan’s Pellet Extrusion is already being used in several DoD and aerospace applications.
Rep. Lamborn also learned about how Titan is growing the local economy in Colorado Springs. In 2018 alone, Titan has hired eight new full-time employees and three part-time employees. Titan also helps other local small businesses grow by working with several Colorado Springs suppliers in the manufacturing sector. Rep. Lamborn was also impressed to learn how Titan Robotics was named a Top 50 Colorado Company to Watch in 2018.
The visit was a chance to highlight Titan’s role in advanced manufacturing and innovative technology taking place right here in Colorado Springs!
