Airflow parable

Mechanical engineering and system construction TruPrint Aluminum Additive manufacturing

The extraction parable in the TruPrint 5000 enables an even return of the shielding gas flow from the build cylinder. The component is hard anodized black to ensure the reflection of the scattered beam and corrosion resistance. Additive manufacturing enables the production of complex geometries at low component costs in comparison to conventional manufacturing methods.

The advantage of additive manufacturing is the fast development time. In short cycles, prototypes made of plastic were produced, measured, and optimized by our colleagues in the Development department until the assembly had achieved a perfect flow. I then worked with my colleagues to prepare the design for the 3D metal printing process. The innovation workshop then took over production using additive manufacturing. This provided us with a first class result.
