Hyperion large-format 3D printer.
Colorado-based large-format 3D printer manufacturer Titan Robotics has announced upgrades to its Hyperion model with a new look and several system enhancements.
Following on from its flagship Atlas 3D printer, the Hyperion is Titan's second FFF large-format 3D printer, which features a smaller build volume and retails at a lower price point.
Though smaller than the Altas model, the list of new upgrades includes a larger print volume than before, now at 24 x 24 x 24 inches, and a heavy duty welded steel frame, precision machined on a CNC mill. The machine also benefits from an improved heated build chamber with a custom designed sheet metal enclosure and high-grade insulation foam. This upgrade means the Hyperion can reliably print in high temperature plastics such as ABS, PC+PBT, HIPS and Nylon as well as lower temperature materials such as PLA and PETG.
Additional upgrades include a lift/wipe system for the dual extrusion option, the use of either E3D V6 or E3D Volcano hot ends, automatic bed levelling and the ability to use a vacuum plenum for the polycarbonate sheet on the heated aluminium bed plate.
The Hyperion maintains the overhead gantry, core XY design, but now includes stronger 15mm GT3 belts. The Z-axis is still driven by 16mm direct drive ballscrews. As with all of Titan's machines, the Hyperion comes with the option to upgrade to Yaskawa closed loop servo motors. The culmination of these improvements has led to a verified travel speed up to 1,500mm/second.
"The upgrades we implemented on the Hyperion make this a top of the line 3D printer of its size," said Titan Robotics CEO, Clay Guillory. "We believe the Hyperion is an affordable, yet industrial machine that is ideal for businesses of all sizes to improve their manufacturing processes."
Titan Robotics will exhibit in the 3D Printing Marketplace at CES 2017 in Las Vegas (Booth 42441).
