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 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.
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 due to the modular construction and the use of standard interfaces. The central components in this regard are the powder removal station, the sieving station, and the powder silos. These devices are suitable for several machines simultaneously, and can be used on 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.
Setup and powder removal are performed parallel to production, which increases productivity and profitability.
The closed powder circuit ensures a clean, safe production environment at all times
Benefit from the high degree of automation and high outputs, even when handling large powder volumes.
With the modular construction and the use of standard interfaces, you benefit from utmost flexibility for your production operations.
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. Due to the interchangeable cylinder principle on the TruPrint machines, the build cylinder can easily be moved into the powder removal station directly after the LMF process. The suction nozzles are optimized 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 due to the rotating build cylinder and an electrical lift drive.
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 due 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.
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 liters). The powder silo can be adapted with utmost flexibility 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.
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. The TRUMPF range includes powders from the areas of stainless steel, tool steel, and titanium, for example. TRUMPF can supply the ideal metal powder and corresponding parameters for your specific application.
