Leading manufacturer of large-format and custom 3D printers Titan Robotics has made some improvements to its second FFF 3D printer model, the Hyperion. The announcement comes almost a year to the day after the company, headquartered in Colorado Springs, CO, announced the Atlas 2.0 Large Format 3D printer, the upgrade to their flagship large-format machine, the Atlas. The smaller, less expensive Hyperion has some new system upgrades, and a brand new look. Even though it’s not quite as massive as the Atlas, the Hyperion is just as robust as its big brother, boasting the same high quality industrial construction and components.
The Hyperion now has a larger print volume, measuring at 24″ x 24″ 24″, and a new and improved heated build chamber that comes with a custom sheet metal enclosure, as well as high grade foam for insulation purposes. This is an especially helpful upgrade, as a heated build chamber will allow the Hyperion to print using both high temperature plastics, like ABS and nylon, and low temperature materials, like PLA and PETG. It has a sturdy welded steel frame, and also features the capacity to use a vacuum plenum on the heated aluminium bed plate for the polycarbonate sheet; both the steel frame and the bed plate are precision machined on the company’s in-house CNC mill.
It also comes with automatic bed leveling, a lift/wipe system for dual extrusion, and the capability to use E3D Volcano hotends, which can increase the volume of plastic that can be processed. Thanks to all of the upgrades, the Hyperion has a confirmed rapid travel speed of up to 1,500 mm per second! In comparison, the travel speed of the Atlas 2.0 is just 600 mm per second.
“The upgrades we implemented on the Hyperion make this a top of the line 3D printer of its size. We believe the Hyperion is an affordable, yet industrial machine that is ideal for businesses of all sizes to improve their manufacturing processes,” says Clay Guillory, founder and CEO of Titan Robotics.
Even with all of the useful upgrades and changes, some things reliably stayed the same, such as the overhead gantry and the fact that the Z axis of the printer is still driven by 16 mm direct drive ballscrews. The upgraded Hyperion maintains the core XY design, but now comes with stronger 15 mm GT3 belts. And same as the Atlas, the Hyperion does come with the option to upgrade to Yaskawa closed loop servo motors.
The team at Titan Robotics works hard to make sure that every 3D printer they fabricate is made using only the highest quality components. Guillory is also an e-NABLE partner, and uses his 3D printers to create custom prostheses for families in need. The company also has a Hub with the 3D Hubs community.
