Maximise your productivity with the TRUMPF fullfield multilaser: three 500 watt TRUMPF fiber lasers simultaneously scan the entire build area (100% overlap), which ensures that you achieve the best build rates. All of the lasers can be flexibly allocated in the build area, which gives the components an optimal surface quality without any seam marks.
Create top-quality 3D components faster
The highly productive, partially automated TruPrint 5000 3D printing system provides the ideal basis for industrial series production. With features such as optional 500°C-preheating and the fullfield multilaser with three 500-watt TRUMPF fibre lasers, you are perfectly equipped to handle even the most demanding industrial applications. The machine quickly and reliably manufactures high-quality components from a range of different metal materials, all while meeting the stringent quality requirements for tool and mould making, the aviation and aerospace industry and the medical technology sector. As an option, the entire process chain can be carried out in a shielding gas atmosphere: sieving, printing, cooling, depowdering. Combined with external part and powder management and the monitoring solutions from TRUMPF, it is predestined for industrial additive series production.
3 x 500-watt fibre lasers simultaneously scan the entire build area to achieve an optimal, seamless surface quality.
Optional preheating of the substrate plate to up to 500°C ensures a high component quality and a robust LMF process. All important process steps can be performed under shielding gas.
The automatic process start enables fast set-up and offers a high degree of process reliability.
The build and supply cylinders can be exchanged quickly and safely for work parallel to production.
The ideal basis for downstream processes such as sawing, milling or grinding.
Keep an eye on the powder coating, weld pool, machine status and productivity at all times and have full control over the component quality, layer-by-layer.
Tool and mould making
Additive manufacturing allows you to create castings with deep ribs in a reliable manner. Cooling close to the contour effectively prevents the overheating of domed areas on sliders, enabling you to realise shorter cycle times. At the same time, this improves the micro-crystalline structure of the casting, which in turn increases its load capacity.
Unlike the conventional milling manufacturing process from a block with 95% material removal, by using additive manufacturing you can achieve a 28% reduction in the weight of the satellite structure, as well as a 45% increase in its rigidity.
Tool and mould making
By optimising this runner using laser metal fusion (LMF), the process steps have been reduced from five to just one and sealing points have been eliminated. The conformal tempering channels increase efficiency and reduce the operating costs.
When it comes to products for the medical technology sector, laser metal fusion allows for a high degree of customisation and meets stringent material requirements.
Aviation and aerospace
This bracket – a typical component used in the aviation and aerospace industry – has optimised topology which enables savings to be made in the materials and weight.
Tool and mould making
Laser metal fusion (LMF) was used on this gate bush to achieve optimum temperature control and to thermally isolate the hot runner nozzles. These tempering channels cannot be produced conventionally.
Aviation and aerospace
Printing a gimbal with the 500°C preheating option significantly reduces residual stress in the Ti6AI4V component. This opens up entirely new possibilities in design, especially in the construction of more solid components.
Tool and mould making
Printed results for highly polished cores made out of H11 using the 500°C preheating option are crack-free with densities in excess of 99.9%. Polishing properties are also high with no difference to conventional production. Cooling performance is comparable to copper. Integrated cooling channels enable stable plastic parts production in injection moulding and significantly reduces cycle times.

TruTops Print with Siemens NX software package
At the beginning of the process chain for additive manufacturing is the preparation of data for the 3D design and production program. The TruTops Print software package with Siemens NX supports you in every work step when preparing data for 3D printing. In this way, you can generate support structures and flexibly arrange the three lasers in the build area, using the TruTops Pint Multilaser Assistant. The integrated build processor then seamlessly converts your design data into a build job file that can be read by the machine. This process breaks down the components for the printing process into individual layers and defines the corresponding laser paths. The software also supplies efficient support when configuring the individual exposure strategies for your components. Save on time and costs with a clear workflow.
TruTops Print Multilaser Assistant
Intelligent and flexible control options are needed in order to make optimal use of the three TruPrint 5000 fullfield multilasers. These options are provided by the TruTops Print Multilaser Assistant, in which laser allocation is configured, in order to optimise the build job in terms of productivity and quality. Additionally, the processing sequence can be visualised, and production time can be predicted.
With four different profile sides available for use, you can achieve a perfect, uniform powder coating and benefit from the highly durable recoater component X profile, as well as a robust process.
Note: this option is compatible with preheating up to 200°C.
The heat-resistant carbon fibre brush enables a faster and more robust powder coating, especially with preheated temperatures from 200°C.
A high component quality is achieved through optionally preheating the substrate plate to up to 500°C. This enables a robust LMF process for a wide range of materials – ideal for sectors that place high demands on their applications (preheating basic machine of up to 200°C). The industrial exchangeable cylinder principle in combination with the cooling station make it possible to cool down the hot build job parallel to production. This increases the productivity of your 3D printer.
Monitoring solutions for your additive manufacturing
The intelligent monitoring solutions from TRUMPF enable you to professionally monitor and analyse the LMF process on the TruPrint machines. As part of this, sensor-based data is recorded and processed. This offer involves solutions for the monitoring of processes, conditions and performance. The results of the monitoring can be seen directly on the HMI of the TruPrint machine. With the TruTops Monitor product, you also have full transparency across all your machinery, along with the option of remote access to the machines - either via desktop or with mobile access via the MobileControl app.
Optimal handling of the powder and components is crucial for series production on an industrial scale. The industrial parts and powder management from TRUMPF enables the setup and powder removal of one or more machines, all parallel to production. This increases productivity and profitability for our customers. Standard interfaces and a modular structure guarantee maximum flexibility.
