500 °C preheating option: First time right

Imagine being able to print larger components from titanium alloy Ti6Al4V (Ti64) or tool steel H11 (1.2343) and getting instantly perfect results. No cracks, less thermally induced stress in the component and no problems from detached support structures. Not possible? It is possible using the TruPrint 5000 with the 500 °C preheating option.

The benefits for you

With our TruPrint 5000 and 500°C preheating option on the substrate plate, you always have control over the temperatures in the process chamber. Homogeneous heat distribution, which specifically prevents stress in the component, reliably achieves optimum printing results for your application. And works in series production too.

Higher quality production

Lower residual stresses measurably increase component quality, especially with Ti64. At the same time, you benefit from having greater design freedom and a very robust production process.

Processing a wider range of raw materials

Be it H11 or H13, our preheating option enables you to process a much wider range of materials and achieve improved component quality.

Less post-processing

The preheating function means that component production requires fewer support structures saving you not only material but also time and costly post-processing.

Reliable series production

Industrial-grade printing with the TruPrint 5000 and the preheating option 500°C for series production. The tried and tested exchangeable cylinder principle can also be used in combination with high preheating temperatures.

Industries that particularly benefit from preheating

Some materials, e.g. Ti64, H11 or H13, are common in certain industries and are ideal for 3D printing with 500°C pre-heating, especially when producing larger components.

No more cracks: Printing Ti6AI4V

Titanium is high strength, low density, has excellent corrosion resistance, and tolerated well by the human body. It therefore offers many benefits to industries, such as medical technology, aerospace and the energy sector, in manufacturing high-precision components. What if such components could be printed without the risk of stress cracks? The 500°C preheating option now makes it possible because the high temperature greatly reduces internal stresses in titanium. Furthermore, the components' geometric precision is also higher so that support structures can be fully dispensed with. This opens up completely new application possibilities for the material in many industries.

What benefits do you get from preheating titanium?

Less internal part stress

High temperatures significantly reduce part stress in titanium, which is a great advantage especially for volume changes and support structure connections.

More design freedom

The preheating option gives you a high degree of design freedom, especially for larger components. This increases the range of parts that can be built by LMF.

200°C, 300°C, 400°C or 500°C? The diagram clearly shows the preheating temperature at which residual stresses in Ti6AI4V cantilevers significantly decrease.

3D printing in tool and mould making: Farewell to cracks in H11 and H13

Metal 3D printing offers many benefits for producing injection moulds and mould inserts, and not just economic benefits but also improved cooling properties. Until now, tool and mould making has had to switch to 1.2709 for 3D printing. This is a thing of the past because from now on printing in H11 (1.2343) and H13 (1.2344) is also possible. Whether you produce using H11 or H13, you will get optimum, crack-free printed products that are also highly resistant to wear and tear.

500°C preheating: The advantages when printing H11 and H13

Fewer cracks

The TruPrint 5000 with the 500°C preheating option gives instantly impressive printed results.

Larger components printable

Even high-volume components made of H11 or H13, previously impossible to make with additive manufacturing, are now printable.

A machine with features: TruPrint 5000 with 500°C preheating and exchangeable cylinder principle

As a semi-automated, medium-format machine, the TruPrint 5000 features an industrial exchangeable cylinder principle combined with substrate plate preheating of up to 500°C. This saves you money. Fast cylinder exchange - despite the 500°C hot component inside - means the cylinder cools down outside the machine in a cooling station. The TruPrint 5000 instantly prints the next build job, increasing the productivity of your 3D printer.

How you benefit from the TruPrint 5000

Higher quality components

High preheating temperatures significantly reduce internal part stress, especially when the part has changes in volumes. Component defects are reduced by up to 95%.

New materials

The TruPrint 5000 and optional preheating of up to 500°C enable special materials to be processed.

No machine downtimes

The industrial exchangeable cylinder principle ensures high machine availability and virtually no costly cooling down times.

Fewer support structures

The fewer supports required significantly reduce manual reworking. This considerably reduces production costs.

Just keep on producing: What makes the integrated exchangeable cylinder principle so unique?

Gain a competitive edge by using our quick exchangeable build cylinder. The hot component cools down in the closed cylinder outside the machine in a cooling station - under constant shielding gas and monitored by smart monitoring options. High machine availability and continuous build processes are ensured not just by quick change build cylinders, but also by quick change powder cylinders to enable additive manufacturing to continue. This reduces idle states and non-productive times and increases 3D printer productivity.
