(PresseBox) - As a pioneer in additive technology with more than 20 years of experience, TRUMPF manufactures reliable machines for industrial series production. The company offers solutions in two of the key laser technologies used in 3D metal printing ? laser metal fusion (powder-bed-based laser melting) and laser metal deposition (generative laser deposition welding). toolcraft, in turn, covers the entire process chain from design, simulation, manufacturing and finishing to quality control and non-destructive testing. The company is continuously developing its work in the area of 3D metal printing by focusing not only on constantly improving the process itself, but also on expanding its machine park. As part of its activities in this field, toolcraft is now investing in three new TRUMPF machines.

TruPrint 1000 with TruDisk 1020 ? green disk laser for processing pure copper and copper alloys

TRUMPF is an expert in lasers and laser metal fusion (LMF) and combines the green beam source with a special-purpose TruPrint 1000 machine. Compared to IR lasers, which have a wavelength of 1,030components are comparable to those of conventionally manufactured parts.

TruPrint 5000 ? multi-laser and heated build plate for high-end precision parts

The TruPrint 5000 works with three 500 industrial part and powder management typical of TRUMPF solutions. The interchangeable cylinder principle reduces setup times, boosts productivity and machine utilisation rate and ensures a clean, powder-free production cycle. Simultaneous production, powder and parts processes also save time. Production is further optimised thanks to the system?s intelligent monitoring solutions and consistent software.

TruLaser Cell 3000 ? LMD technology as the ideal complement to the powder bed process

Laser metal deposition (LMD) can be used to rework and repair worn or damaged parts. By applying functional coatings, this method provides effective protection against abrasion and corrosion. It is even capable of constructing complex geometries on uneven surfaces. The component is heated using a laser beam. This creates a local weld pool into which metal powder is added via a nozzle, allowing the part to be optimally connected to the existing material. It is possible to change between different materials during the work process. The TruLaser Cell 3000 guarantees high build rates and its special design features an integrated line scanner and an EHLA-enabled rotary axis. Researchers from Fraunhofer ILT and RWTH Aachen University have developed the extreme high-speed laser deposition welding (EHLA) method. EHLA is an economical and resource efficient process, which is also environmentally friendly thanks to its use of a chromium VI-free coating. Even class 1 aerospace components have already been repaired using the LMD technology. ?With this investment, toolcraft has the future of additive manufacturing firmly in its sights,? concludes Hauck.
