TruPrint components for powder and parts handling

Optimal handling of the powder and components is crucial for additive series production on an industrial scale. The industrial part and powder management from TRUMPF enables you to increase productivity and profitability in your production operations as setup and powder removal on one or more TruPrint machines can be performed parallel to production.

You benefit from the highest possible degree of flexibility thanks to the modular construction and the use of standard interfaces. Central components are powder removal/depowdering stations, sieving/powder preparation stations and powder silos.

These components can be operated simultaneously for multiple machines and used to complement TruPrint series machines as well as your entire industrial production line. As a result, you can easily set up powder, build and parts processes to run in parallel.

Industrial part and powder management for TruPrint machines from TRUMPF
Using the exchangeable cylinder principle, you can reduce the downtime and non-productive time of your additive production system, whilst increasing your productivity at the same time.
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.
Modular system for industrial additive manufacturing using TRUMPF products from part and powder management
Modular system for your TruPrint machines

All industrial part and powder management components can be combined as part of a modular system. This means you can combine the ideal machine and components to ensure reliable powder and parts handling (including optional shielding gas) in your specific industrial production scenario. We would be glad to help you select the most suitable TruPrint machines and versions of the various industrial part and powder management products.

Processes that run in parallel thanks to industrial part and powder management from TRUMPF
Run your processes in parallel

You can easily set up powder, build and parts processes to run in parallel. The industrial part and powder process components are based on a closed powder circuit. This means you have a clean and safe production environment and also save time.

Separation of building and powder processes

Benefit from safe handling thanks to the simple separation of powder and production areas for your industrial series production. You can also use the components of the industrial part and powder management for several TruPrint machines.

Exchangeable cylinder principle on the TruPrint machines from TRUMPF
Exchangeable cylinder principle

Fully utilise your machine: thanks to the integrated exchangeable cylinder principle, your setup times are shorter, and you can increase your productivity at the same time. Whilst the TruPrint machine prints parts, powder can be sieved into the supply cylinder and the build cylinder set up. Once the build job is complete, the build cylinder and supply cylinder are exchanged for the prepared cylinders – and the machine continues producing directly. The build cylinder is brought into the unpacking station with the components in the powder bed, and freed from the powder ergonomically there.

Double lid principle

Reduce time and costs thanks to a machine that ensures inert conditions end to end: before the build/supply cylinder is removed, the cylinder is closed using the cylinder lid. So that the process chamber remains inert when opened and the cylinder is removed, another lid – the process chamber lid – is used to seal it. This means that production can continue directly once another cylinder has been brought in.

Depowdering station

Our depowdering station with hydraulic lifting and manual swivel and rotary axis allows you to reliably remove powder from components outside the machine. As a result, you benefit not only from high machine availability, but also high cleaning levels of the build job through vibration technology, even for components with complex geometries. Operator involvement is low. We also offer optional depowdering under shielding gas, including shielding gas flow control and monitoring.

Powder removal station, TruPrint 3000

Powder removal station

The powder removal station reliably supplies new metal powder to the 3D printing circuit without any contact with the operator. Components without any contact with the powder can also be separated from the powder bed outside the machine, which improves machine availability. Thanks to the exchangeable cylinder principle on the TruPrint machines (TruPrint 3000 and TruPrint 5000) the build cylinder can easily be moved into the unpacking station directly after the LMF process. The suction nozzles are optimised to meet requirements and actuated using gloves. They enable even complex components to be cleaned easily. This avoids direct contact with the powder. Optimal access to the station is also provided thanks to the rotating build cylinder and an electrical lift drive.

Sieve station with vacuum conveyor, TruPrint 3000

Sieve station with vacuum conveyor

The sieving station provides a highly productive, automatic sieving process with ultrasonic cleaning for industrial metal powder applications. The high degree of automation means the station can be operated unattended. You benefit from a high sieve throughput rate with consistent powder quality thanks to the large sieve surface and the automated supply of powder on a vacuum conveyor. With the integrated vacuum conveyor, you can also sieve from any container and fill the desired container as required using the weigh-in function. If you need to reliably extract or add large volumes of powder, the vacuum conveyor is the ideal solution for you. It can quickly be attached to the sieving station. What's more, the integrated auxiliary HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filter ensures a very high level of safety for operators and the environment. For customers with greater requirements when it comes to powder management, sieving with (inert) shielding gas is available as an option – either with argon or nitrogen with 1%, 3% or 5% residual oxygen. Here you are provided with an installation kit including oxygen sensor, as well as the expansion of the user interface for the control and monitoring of the change in the shielding gas over time during the sieving process. Thanks to the modular periphery, you can also retrofit the option at a later point in time.

Silos for storing the powder, TruPrint products periphery

Powder silo

With the powder silo, you can reliably and efficiently store, transport and fill large powder quantities in a standard container. You can tailor the volume to your needs and select from three sizes (30, 80 and 130 litres). The powder silo can be flexibly adapted to meet the needs of your specific application. The basic container can easily be expanded by fitting clamps, which can quickly be removed for cleaning purposes. Furthermore, the powder silo is easy to transport using the standard pallet jack. The vacuum conveyor can also be attached to the powder silo in order to easily and reliably extract and add large quantities of powder. Powder storage under shielding gas is also optionally available. This way, you can regulate and inspect the change in the shielding gas over time during storage. Up to three silos can therefore be monitored in parallel using the testing log. Due to the modular periphery, you can also easily retrofit the option at a later point in time.

Powder preparation station

The inert machine concept of the TruPrint 2000 with powder preparation station, provides extremely easy powder and parts handling under shielding gas. The closed circuit means that contact with the powder is effectively avoided, and a high level of occupational safety provided. The material also does not degrade due to the minimal contact with oxygen. The powder preparation station can be used for several machines from the TruPrint Series at the same time.

Cooling station

Our separate cooling station for cooling parallel to production after a 500°C build job gives you many advantages: you reduce machine downtime and ensure consistent powder quality through an inert process chain that effectively prevents oxidation of the powder during cooling. The powder can simply be reused. The cooling station is available with the 500°C preheating option.

Closed powder circuit

The right powder for your application

The industrial part and powder management components are based on a closed powder circuit. As a result, you can set up powder, build and parts handling processes to run in parallel, and can ensure a clean, safe production environment.
