toolcraft, Georgensgmünd, Germany, has announced further equipment investment and plans to construct a dedicated Metal Laser Centre with a production area of 800 m2. The company has also purchased a new TRUMPF TruPrint 3000 Additive Manufacturing machine to complement its range of systems from Concept Laser and EOS.
The TruPrint 3000 is used for the series production of complex, metal components. It is said to offer considerable flexibility in terms of the size, number of parts and geometry of the components it is used to produce. An interchangeable cylinder principle reduces set-up times, increases productivity and machine utilisation rate, and ensures a clean, powder-free production run.
“We decided to purchase the TruPrint machine in order to spur on developments in the area of Additive Manufacturing,” explained Christoph Hauck, Managing Director of toolcraft.
Daniel Lichtenstein, Head of Sales and Market Development at TRUMPF’s Additive Manufacturing division added, “We are delighted at toolcraft’s forward-looking decision to implement and help drive forward the use of Additive Manufacturing in industry by purchasing the TruPrint 3000 with its industrial part and powder management features.”
