Standard hip joint socket

Medical technology & dentistry TruPrint 5000 Titanium Series production 500 °C preheating Finest structures

This showcase demonstrates different hip joint socket lattice designs that can be printed with high detail resolution on the TruPrint machines. By preheating to 500 °C, the number of support structures can be reduced to an absolute minimum. This allows the components to be stacked, thereby enabling mass production by reducing material costs and shortening production cycles.

TruPrint 5000

The highly productive, semi-automated 3D printing system TruPrint 5000 prepares you for industrial batch production –  with features such as optional 500 °C preheating and the full-field multilaser equipment with three 500 watt TRUMPF lasers.  Thanks to the preform option, the TruPrint 5000 supports hybrid component production. For this purpose, the component structures to be additively manufactured are applied to a blank.
