TRUMPF presents new 3D printer for medical devices at Formnext 2019


German high-tech company TRUMPF unveiled a new 3D printer at Frankfurt’s Formnext on Tuesday.


The TruPrint 2000 is intended for medical engineering and other applications with lofty standards and quality demands.


Inert gas now flows through the system back to front, which enhances the quality of the printed parts. Another new development is the ability to remove excess powder from the component directly in the system rather than taking it out and unpacking it at a separate station. This saves time when dealing with the smaller build chambers of 3D printers such as the TruPrint 2000. The machine processes the printing powder in an inert gas environment, which prevents contaminants from infiltrating the powder circuit and is a key advantage for applications such as sensitive medical devices.


“With the TruPrint 2000, we are showing that TRUMPF puts the needs of AM-focused industries first – that is, the aerospace, automotive, mechanical engineering, tool and mold making, and the medical and dental engineering industries. The TruPrint 2000 enables manufacturers to take advantage of additive manufacturing’s benefits – particularly medical and dental engineering companies,” says Klaus Parey, managing director TRUMPF Additive Manufacturing.
