Season one of TITAN American Built will take a unique and personal approach to the world of manufacturing and innovation .With the use of state of the art machinery and cutting edge technology like 3D printing, Gilroy will show how American manufacturing can compete in a global market.
An expert in CNC machinery and now a manufacturing entrepreneur, Gilroy opened his own machine shop, Titan American MFG 10 years ago. Along with his team, Gilroy, produces the world’s most intricate parts, completing impossible projects that no other team would dare attempt. Gilroy wants to be on the fore front of manufacturing technology and for the first time, Gilroy and his team will be using a Fortus 250mc 3D Printer from Stratasys, which will compliment his current CNC offerings.
“Episode one highlights our shop using 3D printing in order to manufacture thermal night vision scopes for IR Defense - it’s amazing. Time is the real currency of this industry, and because creating fixturing components is an art, it demands a lot of time to manufacture intricate parts,” says Gilroy. “Instead of waiting two weeks for final product, we can design and create a prototype in just one day with this 3D printer, it has taken our shop to a higher level of efficiency and precision.”
“3D printing is changing the way the world is manufacturing and we are thrilled to partner with Titan Gilroy and show America what is possible when incorporating 3D printing into your overall manufacturing process,” stated Gilad Gans, president, Stratasys North America.
GoEngineer, a reseller of Stratasys 3D Printers, is co-sponsoring TITAN American Built. Ken Coburn, president and founder of GoEngineer, shares in Gilroy’s enthusiasm and vision for the future of manufacturing in America. “I met with Gilroy to discuss the show earlier this year and immediately knew I wanted to help support his passion for educating America on the significant role of manufacturing in the United States. Gilroy recognizes that leveraging new technologies like 3D printing in the right circumstances can help companies gain back the competitive edge needed to help them compete in a constantly changing global economy,” explained Coburn.
Titan American Built premieres Oct. 24 at 10 p.m. ET on MAVTV, currently available on Dish (CH. 248) DIRECTV (CH. 214) and Verizon (CH. 810). For more information visit their website.
