Pellet extrusion 3D printing with EXT Titan Pellet printers enables the adoption of additive manufacturing for industrial production with lower costs, faster print times, and a wide range of material options.
PEKK with glass fiber
Water soluble pellets
ABS with carbon fiber
Benefits of Pellet Extrusion
Pellet extrusion 3D printing enables the use of affordable feedstocks, often at 10X reduction in cost compared to filament.
Faster Print Times
High deposition rates ranging from 1lb – 30lbs per hour with pellet extrusion 3D printing means faster print times, enabling large parts to be printed in days instead of weeks.
More Material Options
Pellet extrusion 3D printing opens up a world of material options, with hundreds of formulations available ranging from low durometer (soft) to high performance and highly filled resins such as carbon fiber and glass fiber.
Polymer Pellet Feedstocks
Durometers ranging down to 26 Shore A
PEBA (flexible nylon)
