3D Systems has introduced the latest addition to its industry-leading portfolio of EXT Titan Pellet systems – the EXT 800 Titan Pellet. With a build volume of 800 x 600 x 800mm, this new pellet extrusion system harnesses the speed, reliability, and efficiency of the company’s large-format EXT Titan Pellet systems (EXT 1070 Titan Pellet and EXT 1270 Titan Pellet) in a more compact format with lower upfront investment. As a result, manufacturers can take advantage of the lights-out, production-ready EXT 800 Titan Pellet to fabricate more modestly sized functional prototypes, tooling, fixtures, sand casting patterns, thermoforming molds, and end-use parts. With print speeds up to 10x faster and 10x lower material costs than traditional filament-based systems, the EXT 800 Titan Pellet is designed to efficiently, cost-effectively address applications in a breadth of markets including foundries, aerospace and defense, thermoforming, prosthetics and footwear, and research.

“With the addition of the EXT 800 Titan Pellet to our industry-leading family of pellet extrusion systems, we are able to bring this technology to a broader set of manufacturers to enhance their products and innovation,” said Rahul Kasat, Vice President of Titan at 3D Systems. “For manufacturers seeking speed and sustainability, our EXT Titan Pellet systems are a game-changer. They combine high-speed printing with cost-effective pellets, making the technology ideal for a wide range of applications. Over the years, the customers have asked us for a solution to meet their needs of producing smaller parts with a reasonable production cost. The introduction of the EXT 800 Titan Pellet is designed for manufacturers that are looking for these benefits, but do not need the very large build capacity of our existing systems. We believe the combination of high-speed, high-quality printing with a smaller footprint and lower upfront investment cost will make the EXT 800 Titan Pellet an attractive solution for a variety of industrial applications. This is yet one more example of how 3D Systems develops innovative solutions that empower our customers to stay ahead of the curve.”

The system has a single extrusion tool head and refined industrial design making it ideal for a wide range of manufacturing environments including offices, labs, and universities, as well as larger shop floors. The compact frame enables the printer to fit through a standard set of double doors providing ease of delivery and installation. The system also includes a large, front-mounted touchscreen for an intuitive user experience.

Along with these new system features for the EXT 800 Titan Pellet, customers who integrate this pellet extrusion system into their manufacturing environment will also be able to take advantage of the same performance features of 3D Systems’ larger pellet extrusion printers – EXT 1070 Titan Pellet and EXT 1270 Titan Pellet. Additionally, active bed and chamber heating allows the use of glass and carbon-filled high-temperature engineering materials such as ABS, PC, Nylons, PEI, and PEKK as well as highly flexible TPE and TPU that cannot be printed on filament-based machines.

The EXT 800 Titan Pellet is available for immediate ordering with delivery of the first printers anticipated for the third quarter of 2024.
