Cost-Effective Pellet Extrusion 3D Printing for Large Fixtures and Tooling
Additive Manufacturing (AM) is changing global manufacturing, especially in the aerospace industry where large-format 3D printers are used to produce tooling, fixtures, patterns and molds. Pellet extrusion and hybrid additive and subtractive systems offer a unique solution for these aerospace applications by leveraging the use of high-performance, low-cost pellet feedstocks and machining techniques to produce these large fixtures and tools at a fraction of the time and cost compared to filament extrusion or traditional manufacturing methods.

In this webinar, you'll learn:
• About pellet extrusion 3D printing and how it achieves up to 10X faster print times, up to 10X savings on material costs and higher part performance pertaining to aerospace applications
• How hybrid additive and subtractive systems can be leveraged to address part surface finish requirements and shorter lead times
• How to select the right AM process for your application
• How aerospace companies and DoD facilities can utilize the Titan industrial 3D printer platforms to produce large fixtures, tools, patterns, molds and more
