With the full-field multilaser (2 x 500 W), all lasers can be exposed to the entire build volume. The result: increase in productivity, shorter production times per component and reduction of part costs. The multilaser scan fields are automatically calibrated to each other to achieve even greater precision. This means that you achieve very high surface quality - without a single seam mark. You will receive the optional full-field multilaser with two powerful TRUMPF fiber lasers with beam diameters of 80 µm.
Flexible solution for industrial additive manufacturing
The TruPrint 3000 is a universal medium-format machine (LMF / PBF / LPBF) with industrial part and powder management. You immediately benefit from even more flexibility, quality and productivity for your additive series production: you will now receive the TruPrint 3000 metal 3D printer with two 500-watt TRUMPF lasers in the full-field multilaser option as well.
Productivity is almost doubled, independent of the component geometry, and the part costs are significantly decreased. Automatic monitoring and calibration of the multilasers during the build job facilitates optimum quality for printed multilaser components. The latest developments in shielding gas control additionally increase the component quality and reproducibility of the parts. This is documented parallel to the build job thanks to Melt Pool Monitoring. It means that the burden of proof, for example in the medical sector, can be satisfied.
The TruPrint 3000 is extremely flexible in adapting to the individual requirements of our customers. It is used in the most varied of sectors with its build volume comprising a diameter of 300 mm and a height of 400 mm. Depending on the size and complexity of the component, your preference in the workflow and the production volume, you can be flexible in your selection between internal or external powder removal - with both processes using shielding gas. With the latter, you also minimize the 3D printer's downtime thanks to parallel to production operation.
Consistent component quality thanks to a newly developed shielding gas stream
Simultaneous laser exposure to the entire build volume for maximum productivity gain
Thanks to different machine and periphery configurations for part and powder management
Ensuring high quality standards during the build job thanks to Melt Pool Monitoring
Simple part and powder handling using shielding gas for consistent powder and part quality
An absorber cooler for a TRUMPF laser source produced with additive manufacturing only consists of two components. There is no need for fitting 27 individual parts together to form the assembly, as would be the case for this component when made conventionally. The printed component impresses with 90 % fewer leaks and a cooling system which is form-fitting and flow-optimized.
A wide range of application possibilities
The TruPrint 3000 is a flexible 3D printer designed for a wide range of applications from the most varied of industries. Take advantage of the laser metal fusion (LMF) technology and the benefits it offers, such as freedom of design and integrated and optimized functions.
Series production with the TruPrint 3000
Components can be arranged with flexibility in the TruPrint 3000's large build area, making the machine perfect for job shops.
A wealth of general industry applications can be optimized using laser metal fusion (LMF). As a result of 3D printing, this radial turbine blower was produced close to the final contours, which reduces post-processing work. What's more, the development of the hollow part leads to a weight reduction of up to 25%. The reduced weight enables higher speeds.
Energy & turbine
Laser metal fusion makes it possible for even complex interior structures to be generated. The laser fuses the desired part contour layer-by-layer in the powder bed, whereby any geometry is possible.

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. As a development partner of Siemens, for the first time TRUMPF is offering a consistent software solution with a standard user interface without interruptions in the system with the "TruTops Print with Siemens NX" software package. The intelligent process chain of the software solution offers a high level of process reliability, as the tools for the development, simulation, 3D printing, and NC programming for metal parts are integrated in a single system, meaning it is no longer necessary to convert in STL. The TRUMPF build processor is also integrated in the software package for slicing and hatching the build jobs, as well as for parameter management. Save on time and costs with a clear workflow.
Increase your productivity with the multilaser option: two TRUMPF fiber lasers, each with an output of 500 W and a 80-µm beam diameter can expose simultaneously in the build area and generate up to 80% more parts in the same time with flexibility. As such, you can ensure that parts are available more quickly and maximize 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. The Automatic Multilaser Alignment option automatically monitors and calibrates the multilaser scan fields to each other during an ongoing build job to ensure optimum quality of the multilaser components.
The powder feeder option is the alternative to external powder removal, because powder is removed from the finished component within the process chamber using shielding gas after the LMF process. Powder can be removed internally from components which are up to 400 mm high.
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 analyze the quality parameters layer-by-layer. A lack of powder is detected by the automatic corrective recoating option and the affected layer is automatically corrected by a new powder coating.
Deviations in the laser metal fusion process can be detected early on via sensors, and critical areas of the component can be seen. It's also possible to monitor all weld pools in parallel – this is especially helpful with the fullfield multilaser option.
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 measure, recalibrate when necessary, and document your measurement results.
Monitoring solutions for your additive manufacturing
The intelligent monitoring solutions from TRUMPF enable you to professionally monitor and analyze the LMF process on the TruPrint machines. As part of this, sensor-based data is recorded and processed. This offer includes solutions for the monitoring of processes (Melt Pool and Powder Bed Monitoring), 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 the 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 wide range of different powder removal options, sieve solutions and storage opportunities facilitate maximum flexibility when setting up your system.
