TCT is coming around once more and all the companies are gearing up to show their best new releases. In keeping with this, Trumpf is unveiling their TruPrint 3000 3D printer for the first time. They tout the printer as a new milestone in printing speed and flexibility for the industry. The company is positioning the machine as a flexible medium format metal powder-based printer for complex print jobs.
The German company will be looking to show off this newest instalment to their TruPrint LMF systems. The printer is 300 by 400 mm, diameter by height, and uses lasers to process powders. Visitors to the TCT conference will be able to view the entire production chain of the machine firsthand. The machine will also feature the TruTops Print with Siemens NX 3D design and production software, being the first machine to feature the comprehensive software solution with a standardised interface across systems.
New Features in the TruPrint 3000
The company has stated that their new printer features a two supply cylinder system, housing up to 75 litres of powder for each print. While that capacity is impressive enough, the powder management system enables set-up and powder removal on parallel machines, meaning users practically never run out of materials during the process. Remote monitoring also ensures that users can keep an eye on their print as it goes along in the chamber.
The printer also has a host of industrial software and monitoring solutions, optimising every element of the production chain. They will also make the services of their engineers available 24/7 as part of their customer care package.
The system features a state-of-the-art no contact system for the powder and high quality filtration. The innovative powder coating system goes over the print chamber ensuring optimal quality as well. The printer looks to be a formidable addition to their impressive portfolio. We’ll know more when TCT finally rolls around.
