A TruPrint 3000 metal additive manufacturing (AM) system from Trumpf has been acquired by the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC).
Installed within the MTC’s National Centre of Additive Manufacturing (NCAM), the machine is based on laser metal fusion (LMF) technology. “The idea behind installing the TruPrint 3000 is to showcase laser powder-bed technology,” explains Ross Trepleton, chief engineer at the MTC. “Our new knowledge hub for metal AM has only been open since October, but already we have a range of different AM platforms in place, the latest of which is the TruPrint 3000.”
