Titan Robotics Collaborates with Materials Suppliers for Printing of Materials at AMUG 2019
To demonstrate printing of production parts using materials on the Atlas 3D printer platform, Titan is partnering with three chemical companies serving the additive manufacturing industry: Arkema Inc., DuPont and NatureWorks.
March 18, 2019
Titan Robotics will showcase for the first time its industrial Hybrid Atlas 3D Printer with Pellet and Filament Extrusion capabilities at this year’s Additive Manufacturing Users Group conference. To demonstrate printing of production parts using materials on the Atlas 3D printer platform, Titan is partnering with three chemical companies serving the additive manufacturing industry: Arkema Inc., DuPont and NatureWorks.
Titan will be printing with three materials on the Atlas 3D Printer during the 2019 AMUG Expo, March 31 and April 1. AMUG Expo attendees can view high-speed printing of these materials from Arkema, DuPont and NatureWorks. Representatives from Titan and the material companies will be at the Titan booth to discuss printer capabilities, material properties and applications.
Printing Schedule During AMUG Expo
Sunday, March 31, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.: Arkema Kepstan PEKK with Glass Fiber Pellets
Monday, April 1, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.: NatureWorks Ingeo Recycled PLA Pellets & Ingeo 3D450 Filament
Monday, April 1, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.: DuPont Hytrel TPC-ET with Colorant Pellets
Sunday, March 31, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.: Arkema’s Kepstan PEKK
A high temperature, high performance material, Kepstan PEKK is material useful for production applications due to its high strength, ease of processing, flame retardancy, low outgassing, dielectric properties and chemical resistance, Titan reports.
NatureWorks has developed a series of Ingeo PLA 3D printing materials designed to meet the requirements of industrial-use parts including high strength, heat resistance, and even clean incineration for foundry applications while maintaining printability, the company reports. NatureWorks has recently introduced Ingeo 3D450, a breakaway material combining printability and tailored adhesion ideal for building with supports, with a clean breakaway that minimizes the need for post-processing.
DuPont Hytrel TPC-ET 3D printing material is a 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.
Stop by Titan's exhibit booth, #78, at the AMUG conference and Expo at the Hilton Chicago, March 31-April 1, 2019.
