New 3D printers to be presented at formnext

Laser manufacturer TRUMPF continues to build its product and technology portfolio for the additive manufacturing of metal parts. The company will be showcasing new 3D printers and one-stop solutions for a comprehensive system of industrial manufacturing using additive technologies at the formnext trade fair in Frankfurt, November 15-18, 2016. Here, TRUMPF continues to pursue breadth: with expertise in both Laser Metal Fusion (LMF) and Laser Metal Deposition (LMD), the Ditzingen-based company is the only manufacturer worldwide to have mastered both relevant technologies for industrial 3D printing.

One of the key product highlights in Frankfurt will be the new TruPrint 3000. The new system comes with a 500 watt laser and can manufacture components of up to 400 millimeters in height and 300 millimeters in diameter. It works on the basis of an industrial exchangeable cylinder, which allows for parallel setup and post-processing and guarantees a high level of machine availability.

One year after the successful market launch of the TruPrint 1000, TRUMPF will also be showcasing new industrial application scenarios for this solution at the formnext trade fair. The TruPrint 1000 is a compact and universally deployable LMF system that can cost effectively manufacture fist-sized components of up to 100 millimeters in height and 100 millimeters in diameter. The technology portfolio is rounded off with the LMD solution TruLaser Cell 3000.
