Machine manufacturer TRUMPF has introduced a further development of its TruPrint 2000 metal 3D printer. According to the company, the device is now also suitable for series production. Productivity is said to have been significantly increased thanks to a more powerful 500-watt laser, a square footprint and optional dual-laser technology.
In dental technology, up to 36 percent more partial dentures can be printed in a single pass, according to TRUMPF. The new TruPrint 2000 is also seen as having advantages for the production of high-quality medical products such as implants, with further improvements in precision and process stability.
In addition, the machine has been made more flexible with an automatically adjustable laser spot. Depending on the material and application, it is now possible to choose between two spot sizes, which should make it easier to transfer parameters between different TRUMPF 3D printing systems.
TRUMPF is presenting the 3D printer for the first time at Formnext, the leading trade fair for additive manufacturing in Frankfurt.
