Epeire 3D, a start-up Additive Manufacturing machine maker based in Haubourdin, France, has released the Epeire T-Titane®, its newest machine intended for small to medium industrial production runs.
Based on the company’s pellet extrusion technology, a form of Material Extrusion (MEX), the T-Titane uses titanium MIM feedstock to additively manufacture the part, followed by a debinding and sintering stage.
The T-Titane joins the company’s T-MIM machine for stainless steel, Inconel, copper and aluminium processing, as well as its T-600 for polymer materials. It comes installed with a titanium and titanium alloy head which offers an accuracy of a 50 μm tolerance, a repeatability of +/-100 μm and flow rate of up to 2,500 cm3/hour.
With a build chamber of 500 x 450 x 500 mm, the T-Titane is said to open a wide range of manufacturing applications, including automotive, medical, sports and mould production.
