Productive and Flexible AM



TRUMPF has increased the productivity of its TruPrint 2000 3D printer. The TruPrint 2000 now comes with a square build plate and the increased power of a 500-watt integrated fiber laser offered as an alternative to the 300-watt laser in the basic configuration. Using a square build plate, dental technology companies, for example, can print up to 36% more removable partial dentures than they could on a comparable round build plate.

"The updated TruPrint 2000 is further optimized for mass production. Users from all industries benefit from the machine's high productivity," said Miguel Verdejo, Additive Manufacturing (AM) Product & Project Manager at TRUMPF's Laser Technology Center in Michigan.

As a multilaser version, the TruPrint 2000 has two lasers. Both lasers can process the entire build plate simultaneously, resulting in optimized throughput for production.

"The TruPrint 2000 is productive, precise and produces high quality parts," said Verdejo. "According to the highest medical standards, medical technology manufacturers use the 3D printer to produce skull plates, spine cages or knee joints made of titanium, for example. In addition to the upgrades of the TruPrint 2000, the machine has the process monitoring and calibration features found in all TruPrint machines. Ensuring repeatable and high-quality parts is the top priority for TRUMPF 3D printing, especially in critical areas such as medical and dental technology."

With its motorized beam expander, the TruPrint 2000 automatically adjusts the spot diameter of the laser to the task at hand. Depending on the application, the spot diameter is 55 or 80 micrometers. The 80-micrometer spot enables higher productivity. Users can use the 55-micron spot when special metal powders require a higher energy density. The introduction of the 80-micron spot size brings the TruPrint 2000 in line with the rest of the machines in the TruPrint portfolio.

"With this standardization, users can now easily transfer the parameters for printing their parts from one machine type to another, such as from a TruPrint 2000 to a TruPrint 1000 or TruPrint 3000, which enables for more flexible production," said Verdejo.
