3D printing in premium quality: highly productive and compact

3D printing in premium quality: highly productive and compact

With the next generation of the TruPrint 1000, we are continuing our success story - with even higher productivity and premium quality thanks to the full-field multilaser and completely redesigned homogeneity of the gas flow. The 3D printer is intended for processing metal powders using the laser metal fusion process, also known as Powder Bed Fusion. Due to the high level of robustness and quality in 3D printing, the TruPrint 1000 is not only perfectly suited for the dental market, but also impressive in the R&D area or in small series production.

The new design of the TruPrint 1000 is optimally structured so that the machine fits through a standard door and can find its place in any laboratory, e.g. in the dental field or in universities.

Fullfield multilaser

Take advantage of the multilaser option to maximise your productivity: Two 200 W TRUMPF fibre lasers (wavelength: 1,070 nm) simultaneously scan the entire build volume with complete overlap, thereby generating up to 80% more parts - in the same amount of time and with the same quality. As such, you can ensure that parts are available more quickly and maximise flexibility when processing customer orders.

Multiplate option

Quickly balance out order peaks and benefit from a longer machine runtime without any intervention by the operator. This is possible because the build cylinder can optionally accommodate up to four substrate plates, meaning the substrate plate can be exchanged automatically without stopping the LMF process. The machine software provides fully automatic support once the first build job is complete and the next one is being started. Completed build jobs are collected in the overflow bin.

Motorised optics

Easily switch between 55 and 80 µm beam diameter in the powder bed to prioritise between best surface quality and higher productivity. This enables you to process materials that require higher energy density, such as highly reflective materials.

TruPrint 1000, Zylinderwechsel
Cylinder replacement

We make cylinder replacement as easy as using an espresso machine! The interchangeable build cylinder and storage cylinder significantly increases your productivity and reduces setup times. In the event of a material change or service cases, the build job can be restarted quickly. The supply cylinder can be filled outside of the machine, parallel to production. The entire process also works when the build volume is reduced (build volume: Ø 50 x H 100 mm) when using high-priced materials.

Inert powder handling with sieving station

Ergonomic, contactless powder handling is now possible in small format as well! A closed powder circuit under shielding gas is created with a glove box and interchangeable cylinders, which are placed in a separate sieving station such as that made by assonic. The powder can be sieved, reprocessed and stored under inert conditions.

Preform option

The Preform option is suitable for the precise and quick production of individual single abutments. The part costs are also reduced significantly as only the patient-specific portion is printed. Up to 64 individual single abutments can be printed on one preform. It is easy to remove them from the plate. Automated preform detection is an important milestone in the industrialisation of additive technology in the dental sector.

Power Bed Monitoring for monitoring component quality

You can automatically monitor the powder bed via an integrated camera in the TruPrint component chamber and the automatic image processing function. This means that you have a constant overview of the state of the component and can analyse the quality parameters layer-by-layer. In addition to the powder coating, the Powder Bed Monitoring function also records the state of the layer and identifies protruding parts in the powder bed.

Setup wizard

Operating the machine is easy with the help of the setup wizard. The machine operator can call up the TruPrint setup wizard directly via the machine's HMI. Subsequently, the user can go through the different work steps in the wizard one at a time, e.g. make layer zero.

Build job preparation with TruTops Print

With TruTops Print you always have the advantage of optimal build job preparation and minimal supporting structures. You can calculate build jobs quickly with the TruPrint 1000 software machine package and can import and export parameters. Components with downskins below 10 degrees can be realised. Thanks to the cobalt-chrome parameters which are perfectly synchronised with the TruPrint system, you can benefit from TRUMPF expertise in materials and processes and can start production promptly. Furthermore, it is easy to use standard dental programs for the construction.

Dental plate prototype

Dental plate

The dental plate shows different dental applications that were printed with the new TruPrint 1000: with significantly increased performance and component quality.

Medical applications

The new TruPrint 1000 is also ideal for medical applications thanks to the inert powder circuit and the high density and smooth surface it can achieve in the printed parts. It is important to store titanium powder in a protected environment in order to maintain the quality of the powder and allow the operator to work safely. In the process chamber the TruPrint 1000 can operate with an oxygen content of 100 ppm, which ensures the perfect quality for medical parts. The high build rate makes it possible to print multiple custom implants in just a few hours.

Demonstrator with a spiral overhang

The component shows how the improved machine performance and optimised laser strategy of the TruTops Print Build Processor make it possible to achieve very low overhangs (15°-25°) and guarantee part and surface quality.

Dental plate with preparation for remilling

Dental plate with preparation for remilling

Measuring points are applied to the dental plate for the milling machine. This means that defined fit sections of the dental plate can be remilled. This demonstrates a dental hybrid process chain option.

Fan wheel prototype

Stainless steel fan wheel/impeller 316L

The overhangs (up to 10°) of the fan wheel shown could be printed in conjunction with TruTops Print without support structures, which saves on reprocessing efforts.

Removable partial denture

Removable partial denture (RPD)

With the TruPrint 1000, you have complete freedom to design and manufacture the intricate structures of removable partial dentures (RPDs), for example, in cobalt chrome. New supporting structures also simplify the reprocessing.

Dental plate with preform

The Preform option of the TruPrint 1000 is suitable for the precise and quick production of individual single abutments. The part costs are also reduced significantly as only the patient-specific portion is printed. Up to 64 individual single abutments can be printed on one preform. It is easy to remove them from the plate.

Small series production with preform

The TruPrint 1000 can be used for fast and cost-efficient small series production. The component is made through additive manufacturing, using a preform without support structures. The finest lattice structures, intricate channels and integrated functions are implemented in just one step. Via an inside joint, the planet rotates on its axis, for example.

You can equip the TruPrint 1000 with corresponding options to suit the technical requirements of you application.

Full-field multilaser option

Increase your productivity by up to 80% with the multilaser option: two TRUMPF fibre lasers, each with an output of 200 W and a 55 or 80 µm beam diameter, respectively, can expose simultaneously in the build area and generate up to 80% more parts in the same amount of time and with a high level of flexibility. As such, you can ensure that parts are available more quickly and maximise flexibility when processing customer orders. As every contour is exposed by a laser, no "seam marks" are created. With the fullfield multilaser you can achieve 100% overlap coverage.

Motorised optics option

Take advantage of the option to switch between a 55 or 80 µm beam diameter. This enables you to prioritise between the best surface quality or higher productivity to process materials that require higher energy density, such as highly reflective materials.

Inert powder cycle package

The package enables professional powder handling, even in small format. Thanks to standard interfaces, connections can be made to external sieving stations, e.g. from assonic, or the powder preparation station. Minimising powder contact automatically increases the safety of powder handling. The inert powder cycle also enables the processing of reactive materials such as titanium by reducing and controlling oxygen levels up to 100 ppm. The powder can be transported in a supply cylinder or overflow bin under shielding gas atmosphere and sieved into an extra container.

Multiplate option

Need to balance out order peaks flexibly and extend your machine time without any operator intervention? Thanks to the Multiplate option, this is possible because the build cylinder can optionally accommodate up to four substrate plates, meaning the substrate plate can be exchanged automatically without stopping the LMF process. You also benefit from the fully automatic support provided by the machine software when completing the first build job and starting the next one. Completed build jobs are collected in the overflow bin.

Preform option

The Preform option is suitable for the precise and quick production of individual single abutments. The part costs are also reduced significantly as only the patient-specific portion is printed. Up to 64 individual single abutments can be printed on one preform. It is easy to remove them from the plate. Automated preform detection is an important milestone in the industrialisation of additive technology in the dental sector.

Powder Bed Monitoring option

You can automatically monitor the powder bed via an integrated camera in the TruPrint component chamber and the automatic image processing function. This means that you have a constant overview of the state of the component and can analyse the quality parameters layer-by-layer.

Calibration options

Various options are available for your TruPrint to meet verification requirements. Laser power calibration - which is also for multilasers, focus position measurement and scan field calibration - enables you to recalibrate and document your measurement results.
