The TruPrint 3000 is a universal medium-format machine (LMF / PBF / LPBF) with industrial part and powder management. You immediately benefit from even more flexibility, quality, and productivity for your additive series production: you will now receive the TruPrint 3000 metal 3D printer with two 500-watt or 700-watt TRUMPF lasers in the full-field multilaser option as well.
Productivity is almost doubled, independent of the component geometry, and the part costs are significantly decreased. Automatic monitoring and calibration of the multilasers during the build job facilitates optimum quality for printed multilaser components. The latest developments in shielding gas control additionally increase the component quality and reproducibility of the parts. This is documented parallel to the build job thanks to Melt Pool Monitoring. It means that the burden of proof, for example in the medical sector, can be satisfied.
The TruPrint 3000 is extremely flexible in adapting to the individual requirements of our customers. It is used in the most varied of sectors with its build volume comprising a diameter of 300 mm and a height of 400 mm. Depending on the size and complexity of the component, your preference in the workflow and the production volume, you can be flexible in your selection between internal or external powder removal – with both processes using shielding gas. With the latter, you also minimize the 3D printer’s downtime thanks to parallel to production operation.
Consistent component quality thanks to a newly developed shielding gas stream.
Simple part and powder handling using shielding gas for consistent powder and part quality
Thanks to a different machine and periphery configurations for part and powder management.
Ensuring high-quality standards during the build job thanks to Melt Pool Monitoring.
With the full-field multilaser (2 x 500 W), you increase productivity, get shorter production times per component, and reduction of part costs. The multilaser scan fields are automatically calibrated to each other to achieve even greater precision. This means that you achieve very high surface quality – without a single seam mark. Full-field multilaser with two powerful TRUMPF fiber lasers with beam diameters of 80 µm.
Achieve even better part quality with our newly developed shielding gas concept. It guarantees a highly robust melt process during which the process chamber, as well as the optics protective glass, remain clean. An optimum shielding gas stream is achieved by the smaller process chamber and a primary and secondary gas flow. This ensures recurring high part quality, particularly in industrial series production.
The integrated powder feeder can be used to remove metallic powder from the finished component within the process chamber using shielding gas after the LMF process. The extracted powder is collected in a separate overflow bin and is reused for the next build job after being sieved.
The TruPrint 3000 has a quickly interchangeable build and powder supply cylinder. Cylinder setup and powder removal for build jobs can therefore be performed parallel to the LMF process. You significantly reduce your 3D printer’s downtime and non-productive time.
Select from two variants to remove powder from the component: remove powder from your part with the depowdering station (with the option of using shielding gas) for a very high degree of purification. Vibration technology also removes powder from complex component geometries. Alternatively, you can also remove powder from the part externally in the depowdering station while avoiding contact with the powder. Use the components of the industrial part and powder management system for several 3D printers and reduce your part costs.
Thanks to Melt Pool Monitoring for the TruPrint 3000, you can verifiably ensure the highest quality standards for printed components. Sensors detect deviations in the laser metal fusion process early on – that includes the full-field multilaser. Quality assurance is supplemented with Powder Bed Monitoring. Each powder layer is monitored visually; there is an option to automatically recoat conspicuous powder layers. Further options are available to meet verification requirements for certified processes: laser power calibration, focus position, and scan field calibration.
The TruPrint 3000 is equipped with one, or optionally as a multilaser with two, 500-W TRUMPF fiber laser(s) with a wavelength of around 1,070 nm. The focal diameter of the TruPrint 3000 system is industry standard 80 μm.
