TRUMPF presented the world’s fastest and most productive medium-format 3D printing system at the formnext trade fair in Frankfurt. TruPrint 5000 works according to a so-called multi-laser principle with three beam sources and is equipped with optics specially designed by TRUMPF.


In combination with the exposure strategies developed by TRUMPF and the optimally adjusted process parameters, the TruPrint 5000 cuts exposure time per job by a factor of three. Based on Laser Metal Fusion (LMF) manufacturing technology, the system uses laser power to generate complex metallic components layer by layer in the powder bed.

Developing additive manufacturing technologies

Drawing on many years of development work in additive manufacturing, TRUMPF helped the technology make its breakthrough: “All our new 3D printers are selling well, and we’re gaining increasing market shares in various sectors. Accordingly, we will most definitely be further investing in this highly promising field,” says Peter Leibinger, Chief Technology Officer at TRUMPF. This includes the establishment of a new development unit in Aachen. “As a seedbed for technologies of the future and with its proximity to RWTH Aachen University and the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology, Aachen is an ideal location to further develop our additive manufacturing technologies,” says Leibinger.
