Trumpf to unveil new systems for Additive Manufacturing of metal parts

October 30, 2015

Trumpf, based in Ditzingen, Germany, has announced it will be presenting new Additive Manufacturing systems for the production of metal parts at the Formnext trade fair, to be held in Frankfurt, November 17 – 20, 2015. The new product range will include machines based on both Laser Metal Fusion (LMF) and Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) systems.

The choice of the laser system depends on the specific application. LMF systems generate parts layer by layer in a bed of powder, these printers bring their strengths to bear when making up parts which are geometrically complicated and extremely elaborate.

In LMD systems, the laser creates a melted pool on the surface of a part and fuses the powder, added simultaneously in a powder stream, to achieve the desired shape. LMD systems are distinguished by the fact that they can add closely defined structures to existing tools and components, doing so at high processing speed.

“LMF and LMD are the two leading technologies in the Additive Manufacture of metal parts – and we have them both,” stated Peter Leibinger, Head of TRUMPF Laser- und Systemtechnik GmbH. “Our customers procure not only the machine and the laser from a single source but – in addition to extensive service support – intensive technology and applications consulting, too. No matter whether you are dealing with injection nozzles, turbine blades, tools or even medical implants – with our broad range of technology we are offering the best solution for virtually every application.”
