TruPrint 2000 with powder preparation station
The inert machine concept of the TruPrint 2000 with powder preparation station, provides extremely easy powder and parts handling under shielding gas. This is how the printed component is inertly unpacked directly in the machine with the integrated powder feeder. The excess powder is collected in the overflow bin. This is placed in the powder preparation station, to sieve the powder for reuse into the supply cylinder, under shielding gas. The powder circuit closes so the user does not come into contact with the powder.
Integrated powder feeder
After the LMF process, the finished component separates from the powder within the process chamber with the integrated powder feeder. The substrate plate size of 200 mm in diameter allows for simple and practical handling inside the machine. With this, the necessary periphery is limited to a minimum: industrial powder management with the powder preparation station.
The fullfield multilaser (2 x 300 W) enables all lasers in the entire build area to carry out exposure, reducing production time per part. Additionally, the 55-µm beam diameter allows you to achieve a very high surface quality and level of detail. The low degree of surface roughness also saves you the need for refinishing.
Melt pool monitoring
Deviations in the laser metal fusion process can be detected early on via sensors, and critical areas of the component can be seen. It's also possible to monitor all weld pools in parallel – this is especially helpful with the fullfield multilaser option. Melt Pool Monitoring reduces the effort required for the application and development of certified processes with verification requirements. Quality assurance is supplemented with Powder Bed Monitoring as well as the status data of the machine.
