Fathom uses modern methods and the latest titanium 3D printing machinery to deliver high-quality titanium parts to its valued customers. Whether your project is time-sensitive, highly complex, high-precision or short production run related, Fathom has the manufacturing solutions for you.
Titanium has become one of the top raw materials for metal 3D printing. Some of the benefits of using titanium for 3D printing include its high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent corrosion resistance and high mechanical strength. Due to the nature of 3D printing, titanium parts can be manufactured with channels and lattice infills, allowing the part to weigh less than a titanium part made using traditional manufacturing methods. Titanium is used to produce 3D printed parts such as surgical tools, medical implants, automotive parts, aerospace parts, electronics, and more.
Fathom offers multiple additive layering services, including titanium 3D printing. During the metal 3D printing process, a laser beam melts 20 – 60 micron layers of powdered metal, creating a part from a bed of powdered metal. Titanium 3D printing is one of 28 manufacturing processes offered by Fathom.

Fathom can deliver components with a professional surface finish. Strength, rust resistance, and metal conductivity can be added to a part during finishing. Finishes offered by Fathom include shot peening, electrochemical polishing, CNC finishing, etc.
Abrasive blasting can remove imperfections, rust and other contaminants from a part’s surface. Abrasive blasting is often used to prepare a part for a coating application. Different abrasive blasting methods include micro-abrasive blasting, bristle blasting, bead blasting, etc. Steel grit, silicon carbide, pumice and other abrasives are used for abrasive blasting.
Shot peening can enhance a part’s strength and reduce its stress profile. During shot peening, the part is hit with multiple shots that leave deformities on the part’s surface. The process adds a compressive stressed layer.
Optical polishing is cost-effective and provides a brilliant finish. Optical polishing creates a microfinish or superfinish on a part’s surface in preparation for further processing. The optical polishing process is best for projects with geometries in low quantities that are not tolerance dependent.
Electrochemical polishing produces a mirror-like finish on metal parts. Electrochemical polishing can also be used to prepare a part of further finishing. The part is placed in an electrolytic solution with a copper or lead cathode during the process. The electric current moves through the solution, smoothing the part’s surface.
Abrasive flow machining can deburr and polish a part. During abrasive flow machining, a chemically inactive media works to polish the part and remove unwanted material.
Electroplating adds a metal layer to the outside of a part, increasing its strength and durability. Electroplating dissolves metal in an electrolytic solution and transfers it onto the part’s surface. Some of the most common metals used during electroplating are copper and zinc.
Micro machining uses great technical precision to preserve the geometries of a part while adding a mirror-like finish. During MMP, the part is mapped by a profilometer to generate a roughness profile. The component is then transitioned to the MMP envelope, where micro-milling cutters polish the part.
CNC finishing or machining adds wear resistance, metal conductivity, strength, rust resistance, etc. CNC finishing can improve a part’s appearance and prepare it for a final coating. Finishing may involve powder coating, bead blasting, passivation and anodizing.
