Titan Robotics has just released a powerful new large scale 3D printer that will most likely prompt anyone interested in industrial-grade 3D printing to perk up from their afternoon workday slump and take note. But be warned–this isn’t meant for casual whimsy. The Atlas 3D printer is designed for epic printing.
Living up to the qualities of its stalwart name, The Atlas has performed at top levels in rigorous testing, demonstrating the ability to produce larger 3D prints over and over with superior accuracy. This innovative and sturdy machine is meant for the 3D printing operator with heavy-duty needs.
Touted by Titan as a 3D printer that will last a lifetime, in producing your voluminous prototypes and components, The Atlas is the largest in their lineup of 3-axis industrial 3D printers, featuring:
- Build space of 30″X x 30″Y x 48″Z
- Heated print bed
- Welded and machined steel frame
- Excellent construction and calibration
- High quality electronics
- Guaranteed repeatability of +- .002”
While Atlas, of Greek mythology, is most often associated in popular culture with cartography, the true story began with this son of Titan Iapetus and Clymene. In making his way through a battle against the Olympians, fighting side by side with his brother Menoetius–and losing–Atlas was sentenced by Zeus to hold up the heavens. While stories and myth vary, the true qualities associated with Atlas are endurance and strength, as he bears the inestimable weight of great and eternal responsibility on his massive shoulders.
After completing intense testing sessions for over a year, the aptly named new 3D printer has been documented by Titan as producing massive functioning prototypes in just over 200 hours.
“We are excited to introduce such a high quality 3D printer,” said founder and CEO Clay Guillory. “We fully expect this printer to be a game changer in the 3D printing industry.”
Offering a number of customizable options like dual extruders, closed loop servo control, and more, depending on the user’s industrial 3D printing requirements, The Atlas is capable of operating with nearly any 3mm plastic filament with incredible precision. This large-scale printer offers a moving table and raised bridge with a steel frame featuring ‘profiled linear rails that sit flat and parallel within .001.”’
Titan Robotics is one of those special companies originally founded by makers for makers. Building a versatile lineup of large 3D printers for hobbyists as well as manufacturers, their focus is on offering 3D printers built by them with high quality components at the most affordable prices.
Titan Robotics began out of founder and maker Clay Guillory’s garage, gaining inspiration and steam as he was contracted with his first project to make a 3D printed prosthetic for an 8-year-old child. Not only is he a mechanical engineer who spends all of his free time designing and making 3D printers–Guillory is also partnered with e-Nable creating custom prostheses on his 3D printers for families in need.
