TruPrint 5000 Green Edition

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 produces high-quality components made of different metallic materials – and in doing so meets the high quality requirements in tool and mould making, including by means of 3D printing on preform blanks, in aerospace and medical technology. 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.

Thanks to the Preform option, the TruPrint 5000 supports hybrid component production. For this purpose, the component structures to be additively manufactured are applied to a blank. The innovative option is particularly well-suited for simple handling in tool and mould making.

Maximum productivity

Thanks to the highly dynamic scan strategies with SCANahead, three 500-Watt full-field multilasers simultaneously scan the entire build area and thus guarantee optimal surface quality without seams. In addition, the positioning of the laser beam sources is automatically monitored and corrected if necessary.

High component 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.

Automatic process start

The automatic process start enables fast set-up and offers a high degree of process reliability.

Hybrid manufacturing thanks to Preform

Thanks to the preform option, hybrid component production is supported. By using preform blanks you save time and money and at the same time enjoy the advantages of additive manufacturing.

External part and powder management

The TruPrint 5000 enables you to work parallel to production: the set-up process is optimised, productivity is increased and contact with powder is avoided.

Industrial monitoring

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.

The TruPrint 5000 is a partially automated, highly productive 3D printing machine. Once the build cylinders are put into the TruPrint 5000, the machine takes over the start of the LMF process using automatic process start. This replaces the otherwise manual set up and increases the process reliability.
Our quick-change build and powder cylinders shorten setup times while increasing productivity and machine utilisation. This is achieved by the still hot components cooling down outside the machine in closed cylinders under shielding gas in a cooling station.

Preheating of up to 500°C means you can use a wide range of materials and ensures better component quality
Optional preheating of up to 500°C means you can use a wide range of materials and ensures better component quality

Thanks to optional preheating of up to 500°C you can achieve a visibly better component quality for many applications and materials from sectors such as tool and mould making, the aerospace industry and the medical industry. This means you benefit, for example, from fewer support structures and stress cracks in titanium (Ti6AI4V). Furthermore, certain materials such as H11 (1.2343) and H13 (1.2344) can only be processed at temperatures of 500°C.

Hybrid manufacturing thanks to Preform

Gain an advantage through the clever 3D-compatible design with the combination of manufacturing techniques: Print your additive structure on top of cost-effective, conventionally manufactured preform blanks. The HMI is used to position the geometry to be printed on the blank - manually or automatically, depending on the configuration. You can visualise the precision fit via the Powder Bed Monitoring camera. Use the option for the sustainable reprocessing of individual components or for series production. Enjoy the benefits of high-quality, reproducible component quality.

Melt pool monitoring
Melt pool monitoring

Take advantage of a detailed quality check and documentation, layer-by-layer. This enables you to detect process deviations early on and to visualise areas of the component that are critical. In addition, you can automatically analyse the data against a reference part. You can also monitor all of the weld pools in parallel with ease.

Interchangeable cylinder principle on the TruPrint machines from TRUMPF
Integrated interchangeable cylinder principle

As the build and supply cylinders can be exchanged quickly, cylinder set up, powder removal and cooling of hot build jobs can be performed parallel to the LMF process. This reduces idle time and non-productive time and increases the machine's productivity.

Industrial part and powder management
Industrial part and powder management

Take advantage of setup and powder removal for one or more machines, all parallel to production. Short throughput times for large powder volumes and a closed powder circuit provide a high degree of productivity and operator safety. The central components of the sieving station, powder removal station and powder silo provide the basis for series production on an industrial scale. Optionally, the entire process chain can be run under a shielding gas atmosphere: sieving, printing, cooling, depowdering.

Touchpoint Print user interface

Touchpoint Print is the simple interface for operating your 3D printing system. Navigation follows an intuitive logic and can be operated using touch gestures such as swiping. The views are reduced to the essential items, and realistic 3D visualisations simplify setup operations on the machine.

Slider produced using additive manufacturing

Hybrid tool and mould-making with preform and 3D printing

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. Thanks to the Preform option, the TruPrint 5000 supports hybrid component production. For this purpose, the component structures to be additively manufactured are applied to a blank. Preform Basic is particularly intended for simple handling in tool and mould making.

Tool production using Preform and PBF

With the Preform option, the TruPrint 5000 can produce the milling tool in series, thereby saving costs and material by only printing where it is really necessary. Preform Advanced automatically enables high-precision positioning of the milling heads to be printed on the conventionally manufactured blanks. Design by Paul Horn GmbH.

Bionically optimised heat exchanger

Computer-aided development of an efficient medium-sized heat exchanger by Hyperganic. The pressure loss was reduced by 50% compared to a conventional heat exchanger. The goal was to minimise the pressure loss while achieving maximum cooling capacity, which was only possible by using additive design. The heat exchanger was printed in Ti6242. Designed by Hyperganic.

Implant produced with the TruPrint 1000

Titanium hip socket Ti6Al4V ELI

The various grid designs on a hip socket were printed on the TruPrint machines with high detail resolution. Preheating to 500 °C can greatly reduce the amount of support structure; it is even possible to stack parts. Both steps have a positive effect on the entire process chain by reducing material costs and shortening the production cycle.

Star tracker – fixture for a satellite camera

Bracket on the satellite

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.

3D-printed gimbal using 500°C preheating

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.

Polished handles

Tool and mould making

Printed results for highly polished cores from Reinhard Bretthauer GmbH 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.

Turbine rotor blade for engines in aviation and aerospace

When a turbine blade is affected by wear, the decision often has to be made: discard it or repair it? Hybrid production with the Preform Basic option saves you costs, material and time for replacement. The defective part of the turbine blade is milled off; Powder Bed Fusion is used for 3D printing on the existing part. This is a significant advantage, especially when supply chains are strained.
