TRUMPF metal powder for additive manufacturing

Additive manufacturing: powders and parameters

TruPrint systems promise the highest standards of quality and productivity at attractive part costs. This is achieved by the interaction between high-quality metal powders and correspondingly optimised parameters. An extensive range of parameters for numerous materials facilitates a quick introduction and safe production. In addition, it is also possible to adapt parameters to individual requirements.

TruPrint systems are open, which makes it possible for customers to use the powder of their choice. In order to achieve optimum process conditions and material properties, we recommend suitable metal powders from international powder suppliers with the highest quality standards. You can receive further information on the powders from our partners.
