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

Through 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 mold making, the aerospace industry, and the medical industry. In this way, you can benefit from fewer support structures and fewer stress cracks, for example. Furthermore, some materials actually require a temperature of at least 500°C, so that they can be processed in the first place.

Interchangeable cylinder principle on the TruPrint machines from TRUMPF

The 500-watt fiber lasers operate using a wavelength of around 1,070 nm. The focal diameter, which can be individually adjusted between 100 and 500 μm, means it is possible to react to differing component requirements with outstanding flexibility.

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 visualize areas of the component that are critical. In addition, you can automatically analyze the data against a reference part. You can also monitor all of the weld pools in parallel with ease.

Slider produced using additive manufacturing

Tool and mold 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 realize shorter cycle times. At the same time, this improves the micro-crystalline structure of the casting, which in turn increases its load capacity.

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 arrange the three lasers in the build area with flexibility, using the TruTops Print 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 optimize the build job in terms of productivity and quality. Additionally, the processing sequence can be viewed, and production time can be predicted.

Additional optics protective glass cassette

The optics protective glass cassette is a holder for additional protective glasses above the build platform, a protective glass for the laser, a protective glass for the pyrometer, and a protective glass for the process monitoring camera. An integrated gas flow prevents the protective glasses from getting dirty too quickly. The entire protective glass cassette can be removed, which means the protective glasses can also be cleaned outside of the machine.

Preheating of up to 500°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).
