Trumpf introduced its TruPrint 1000 3D metal printer that uses a laser and metallic powder to build components directly from a CAD program. This LMF (Laser Metal Fusion) 3D metal printer creates components layer by layer with grain sizes as small as 20 micron.
It is ideal for creating parts that are complex in their geometry, such as those with internal channels and hollow spaces, and for economically manufacturing individual parts or short production runs. The printer can also be used for adding volume and structures/ features to existing parts.
The TruPrint 1000 3D metal printer can generate parts that are a maximum of 100mm in diameter and 100mm in height. The user interface with touch screen control guides the operator through the individual phases of the process. All the printer components are integrated into the compact housing.
The entire 3D printing process takes place inside the enclosure, blanketed by protective gas, and at an oxygen content of 0.1 percent ensuring part quality.
