TRUMPF's welding, marking, and AM technologies

July 28, 2022

Trumpf Inc.

TRUMPF will show the latest in automated arc welding, 3D laser welding, 3D laser marking, and additive manufacturing (AM) technology at IMTS 2022 in booth #236217. The company will highlight the TruArc Weld 1000, an automated arc welding system designed for high-mix, low-volume production, and laser technology for 3D processing, including the TruLaser Station 7000 fiber, a fully equipped low-investment 3D laser welding system, and a TruMarkStation 7000 with aTruMark 6030 marking laser for high-performance 3D laser marking.

In booth #433037, TRUMPF will feature the TRUMPF’s TruPrint Green Edition, a productive metal AM laser machine designed for specialized applications, including the 3D printing of copper, copper alloys, gold, and other precious metals. It’ll also feature a virtual showroom for participants to take a deep dive into the variety of laser technology and AM applications offered by TRUMPF to help determine the right equipment for different application and part requirements.

TruArc Weld 1000
The automated arc welding system makes it easy for fabricators to get started in automated welding. A collaborative robot, or cobot, allows affordable high-mix, low-volume production. Even first-time operators can program by guiding the cobot by hand because programming is simplified by the operating unit on the welding torch and factory settings for different materials and sheet thicknesses.

TruLaser Station 7000 fiber
The TruLaser Station 7000 is a versatile, compact, and fully equipped low-investment 3D laser welding system. The higher power laser enables a broad range of applications that facilitate efficient and ergonomic 3D laser welding of small assemblies, such as sensors, rotationally symmetrical components, and medical devices. Its large work area also makes it possible to integrate fixtures and process larger components in a small installation area. Fully integrated image processing ensures reliable weld seam positioning.                                          

TruMarkStation 7000 with TruMark 6030
TRUMPF will demonstrate laser marking of 3D metal printed parts with a TruMark Station 7000 laser marking station that features a TruMark 6030 marking laser and VisionLine 3 feature recognition capability. The TruMark 6030 is a high-performance marking laser with 3D functionality. The laser’s outstanding beam quality and high power densities ensure clean material removal and high-contrast markings.

TruPrint Green EditionIn the AM pavilion, the TruPrint Green Edition, a highly productive metal AM laser machine designed for specialized applications including the 3D printing of copper, copper alloys, gold, and other precious metals, will be on display. With a wavelength of 515nm, the TruDisk 1020 green laser makes it possible to 3D print reflective materials, which can be difficult or impossible to process with infrared wavelengths. The machine can also manufacture parts made of copper alloys such as CuCr1Zr with a larger process window and higher productivity than traditional infrared laser metal fusion laser systems.
